Also try our search feature to browse a partial selection of the materials available for your car.
We typically only sell yardage, however we will in most cases make seat covers upon request. We believe there are plenty of good, fair priced, auto trimmers that do an excellent job of sewing and installing the upholstery, and we recommend most people go this route. However if you do want us to make covers, it is likely that we will need your original covers from which to make patterns.
Our minimum cut on cloth and vinyl orders is 2/3 yard. We measure all of our cloth and vinyl by the running yard, which means a yard up the roll by the width of the roll. Roll width varies, but vinyl is usually about 54" wide and cloth is often 60" or more wide. For leather orders, we sell by the hide or half-hide. Please contact us for more details.
All packages must be opened and inspected within five (5) business days of receipt. If there is a problem with your order, please contact us immediately. For quickest service, please click "Contact" above and fill out the form. Alternatively, you can call us at (503) 263-3535.
We will correct any error in your order as quickly as possible. If SMS is unable to correct the error, we will issue the customer a refund. If the customer declines to allow us the opportunity to fix an error, a credit toward a future purchase will be issued using the customer's original method of payment.
If the customer receives the correct merchandise ordered but then chooses to return it for whatever reason, they will be issued a credit toward a future purchase, minus a 20% restocking fee due to the decreased value of cut yardage. This applies only to cut yardage (cloth, vinyl, etc.). Custom made products such as door panels, headliners, and vinyl tops cannot be returned if they were delivered as ordered.
Yes! We will ship anywhere in the world, and we give the customer many different international shipping options to fit their time and budgetary requirements. In fact, a large percentage of our business comes from overseas. We also send samples internationally, free of charge.
