In this installment of our interior rebop series, were going to reupholster seats with goodies from Mustangs Plus.
Were going to show you something not seen very often: Mustang bench-seat reupholstery. TMI and Mustangs Plus bring you exceptional-quality seat-upholstery kits that make doing it yourself easier than you think. We like TMI upholstery for its solid-color vinyl piping, heavy-duty listing sleeves, and super-tough vinyl. These features make it long-lasting and durable.
Do-it-yourself upholstery doesnt mandate unaffordable special tools. Visit your favorite hardware store and pick up a set of hog-ring pliers, steel hog rings (not copper ones), silicone spray (for lubrication while pulling stubborn upholstery over foam), and a heat gun (a hair dryer will work fine).
We suggest laying your upholstery in the sun for a warm-up prior to installation. Cold upholstery doesnt stretch well and, in fact, it will tear. So warm it up first, and be patient while youre working. Force it, and youll tear it. Take your time and strive for excellence.
