Hey guys, I am in the process of restoring my interior and I am putting in an old bench seat. It needs to be reupholstered so I am going to take a crack at it. I am going to be doing it in red/maroon/claret and I was wondering if anybody has pictures of different reds that all the big places sell (ecklers/dixieRestoration/stockInteriors). They all have different dark reds but I can't get a good feel for any of them. If anybody got pics of red interior bench's please post em down below. Or any color for that matter so people can come take a look at all colors before they shell out $400 on new upholstering. Also if anybody knows how to separate the back's of the seat from the rest of the bench let me know because I cannot for the life of me figure it out so that I can replace my bent posts and bad bushings on the seat frame. Thanks again guys!

They will send you samples upon request.

I can tell you from personal experience that none of them sell the correct red for 1981

I wound up having to source raw materials from a trim supplier in a color that was very close, without breaking the bank at SMS

You definitely need to get samples, variations on phones and monitors can be different and some colors have a solid color and others even though they are the same color might have a slight pattern to them.
