Surprise new parts!

Got home from work today, knowing my parents were coming to visit in their RV. What I didn't know is that while they were in Virginia they went to Virginia Mustang and brought me a whole new TMI interior set, seat foam, sticker pack and Monte Carlo brace for the '66 coupe I bought on Memorial Day!

My interior is a bit faded and the driver and pass seat are pretty flat and have come unstitched. I say they came come visit anytime! 😎

Ask them if they'd be interested in adopting another son. I'm already house broken and I promise not to leave empty beer cans all over the house.

It's a good thing that you didn't already buy those parts.

That's cool of them. I just recovered my seats with the TMI covers. I never recovered seats before and the first one took me about 3 hours. Needless to say the other front and whole back seat took about the same time. What fun it was. Bad part was I had no sun to warm up the covers.

It's a pain to recover them, but it is entirely do-able. Just take your time. Don't feel bad about stringing it along over a few days. That will help with the inevitable hand/forearm soreness.

+ 1 for your parents.

I agree that reupholstering seats is do-able, also about the hand/forearm fatigue.

Get a good pair of hog ring pliers. I bought a set of two pliers + rings from Amazon and was frustrated at how crappy the pliers were.

CJ has a pretty good video on doing the front seats. I had a devil of a time attaching the seat back to the base - the guys in the video did it in a few seconds.

My Dad and I worked a lot on that red 65 coupe, I think he's just as excited as I am!

Thanks everyone for the comments, my brother will have to fight off those that want his spot. 😂

Today we ripped out the transmission, new clutch and pressure plate going in tomorrow. (I paid for that,)
