Looking for suggestions on who makes the best seat/door panel interior kits. Seems like all of the major parts suppliers list interior kits, but are they all coming from the same place? Or does one supplier have better quality then the others?

At one point I had planned on buying the fabric from SMS auto fabrics, but might go the premade route now. This is for charcoal/ivory interior for 210 4-door. Thanks.

Any question you pose, there are usually different opinions. My choice would be Ciadella as they have a long track record; family business. If I bite the bullet to redo mine down the road, they will be my go to choice. In your case, I don't know how many offer the product you need for your model. Ciadella does.

He who dies with the most toys doesn't necessarily win, but had more fun getting to the finish line.

I just completed the Ivory/Blk interior in my '56 tudoor belair sedan.
I ordered the foam and covers from Eklers.
The foam is from someone in Texas Chuck Knox? and the covers are from Cars Inc.
I checked the prices at the makers web sight and it is actually cheaper thru Eklers.
But your question is "who makes the best seat/door panel kits?"
After posting the issues that I ran across while doing this wonderful project,
most people do not attempt this real joy of a project, so being able to say who has the better quality kits would be hard to say.
So why did I order from Eklers?
Well when a repop boutique offers you 20% off and a 15% off discount coupon and its not because they like you,
you figure out what parts you really need, so I ordered from Eklers.
But I will say, my interior looks KICK SSA now.
The ordering parts is not EVEN half the fun.

Matter of preference as your always going to find someone who was unhappy with any vendor. Gina Ciadella I have found to be great to work with and personally never had an issue. She can also mix and match fabrics if you want something original like using 59 fabric on 57 panels. That is something that will not be able to be done with most of the others. They also do full custom as well. The old adage you get what you pay for applies. If you are strictly looking for price, since you are in Wisconsin I will tell you CARS Inc will usually give you a "show" discount and will bring it to Fall or Spring Jefferson at no charge. So you can save even more with no shipping costs.
