Looking to source seat and carpet in tan - anyone have experience with the color - is it accurate to original? My '68 AMX is in no condition to offer a comparison.
Also, do they have the door panels - it didn't show up under tan.

Thanks,
Dave

The door panels they sell are for 69 - the difference is the wood grain rectangle for 69 vs the arrow for 68. If that detail is not important to you, the 69 panels will work. The 69 beige may not be quite the same shade as the 68 tan, but the panels could be sprayed with the proper colour.

The only place I have seen the door panels with the Arrow is SMS Auto Fabrics.  I have had some on order for 6-9 months.  They did warn me about the long lead time and claim they are on the shop floor now.  Hopefully will see how they turn out soon.  Was on the fence about buying them and they came across with like a 20% discount and I couldn't resist.  I think they normally go for about $700 pair.  You have to send in your metal parts at the top from your old door panels.

madams, do you expect the color to match your other interior parts? wondering if the interior colors have 'standards' like paint codes, or if tan can mean different things to different vendors.

Go to their website and request a color sample and they will mail you around 1" x 2" material samples of the fabrics they use.  I have a black interior which seems to be much easier to match so I expect it to match pretty well.  I have never bought anything from SMS before, so I really can't say how satisfied I will be until the goods show up.

I got Legendary A pillars and door panels for my 73 Charger and they match perfectly, not only the color, but also the patern in the vinyl.

I got samples from Legendary for 68 tan maybe 5 years ago and the color match was good, but the ventilair vinyl pattern was nothing like OE.  It was like a "close approximation" without doing it right.  This may have all changed since then, so call or email and ask for samples.  At that time I also requested material samples from SMS and it was exact.  Again, call or email them.

The 69 saddle is much darker and nothing like the 68 tan.  Well, it's a closer match than black, but that's about it.
