    I was wondering if anyone knew of a place that sells Comfortweave material by the yard. I am eventually going to reupholster (with the Mustang kits) some bucket seats I got for the Grabber, and I want to reupholster the rear seat to match. Thanks.

    Corbin,

    This is Ed's wife.

    I might have found a place for you to call it is in the Phoenix,AZ area the name of the company is Phoenix trim & supply, phone # 602-269-5825, I had spoke to a guy by the name of Wayne. He said that he has four different colors, and that it is the breatheable comfortweave.
    Hope this helps. :bananaman :bananaman

    Corbin,

    If you follow up on this lead can you please keep us informed of the outcome? I was thinking of doing the same thing myself, but didn't think the real "Comfortweave" was still available. Thanks. John B.

    Anybody ever find a Comfortweave looking replacement? I call this place above and they didn't have it. I also told them that the 2003 and 2004 Mustang Mach 1 used Comfortweave seats. They said their Detroit manuals did not list a replacement source.

    Quote from a Mustang site:

    I learned from TMI that the product described as "Comfort Weave" is no longer woven due to the machine that made the stuff burned. What's being sold is an embossed look-alike.

    I haven't found anything yet. I am still looking even though the Grabber is on the back burner right now. I would love to find some though, so I can redo my rear seat with comfortweave inserts.

    I notice all the Mustang places that sell ComfortWeave upholstery have it labeled MCA approved so I guess it looks pretty good. Just have to find out where to get it my the yard ... I'll have to talk to the upholstery shop that I've worked with in the past.

    I currently have 73 buckets and rear seat in my 71 Grabber. I sold the tracks off of those white 72 buckets I have so I'm thinking about getting them redone in black and putting the correct seats in my Grabber ... Guess I have a choice of Fabric or Comfortweave inserts.

    Real ComfortWeave woven vinyl if available NOS would have been long gone from any supplier ... It is a much sought after item in the Classic Mustang world ..

    Woven vinyl. Most car companies used it in the 60's and 70's for a more comfortable seat. Tightly woven strands of vinyl which allowed the seat to breath and made it softer. If you have ever seen the Deluxe door panels with the black backing instead of the Wood Grain you have seen Comfortweave. The black vinyl behind the Maverick Logo on the door panels was comfortweave vinyl.

    I think it was and is the best material ever used for seat covers.It truly did breath and was pretty tough also.

    They would probably work if you don't mind the upholstery not being Maverick correct. The Mach 1 upholstery is pretty close but not exactly like Maverick High Back bucket upholstery.

    Just talked to SMS ... what they are selling is FORD OEM Comfortweave ... not reproduction ... The person who answered thinks it's $85 per yard - the exact price quote will be included with the sample.

    Talked to my upholstery Guy ... He wants $650 plus material to do both buckets and the rear seat. He also said figure on 3 to 4 yards of comfortweave being required.

    Looking at a $1200 job .... :eek: :eek:

    I have used them before...

    SMS is the best. Expensive or not, if you want the best spend the extra $$. You will not be sorry. So far I have used them for:

    Gold naugahide upholstery for my 69 Pontiac Catalina convertible, and (with the help of a professional upholster) it came out like factory new.

    Green OEM halo top for the Mav (yet to be installed)
    Green OEM headliner for the Mav (also yet to be installed).

    Their fabrics were stored in a vacuum or something.

    Glad to hear .... Considering what I have in the rest of the car $1200 ain't that big of a deal ... and I do want it correct .... :)

    beading

    FYI- You might want to ask them about beading too. Depending on what color your interior is, there may not be a comparable replacement beading material color available today. The one thing wrong about my Pontiac interior is that I used beading that matched the seatbelt/carpeting color because there was not anything close to 1969 gold naugahide color. Perhaps SMS can set you up with that too. It is too late for me....

    I've got comfortweave inserts that are black and white woven together to make a grayish looking color and I've even seen black and red in person can anyone tell me more about this and if sms has the fabric available. I called but no answer.
