We removed both bucket seats and the rear seat from our hardtop. The seat upholstery, foam, and burlap are shot. It's time for new foam and seat upholstery from Distinctive Industries and California Mustang.

If you remember our '67 Six-To-Eight Frost Turquoise hardtop, you'll recall a daily driver that was mighty worn out. Faded paint and a sun-decayed interior were the only elements holding us up between zero and hero. We installed new carpet and rocker moldings to set the stage, so now Lancaster Auto Interiors is adding new Distinctive Industries' upholstery for the front buckets and rear seats.

What makes front bucket seats a different upholstery experience is new seat foam. When you install new seat foam, your upholstery project becomes more challenging because it requires strength and patience. Reproduction seat foam isn't the same consistency as the original factory foam. It is firmer for one thing, which makes installation more challenging. We're going to show you how to make the most of this experience.
