The automotive restoration and customizing trade can be very rewarding, taxing, stressful, and exciting all at the same time. When restoring/customizing a car, we get to see modifications and repairs most people would never guess exist on their car. By taking a car to its bare bones, we see all of the work previously accomplished on the car, which sometimes leaves no words or actions other than a scratch of the head and a question we've all uttered at some point - "what were they thinking?"
In this case, we received a 1965 Mustang Convertible in for a paint job and we were to oversee a new interior install. Here it is the day we started tearing into it. Pretty clean old car, right?
Not only did we find plenty of body work, we found the most amazing custom interior touch anyone has ever witnessed. As we peeled the sheep wool seat covers off, we had to stand back and admire the handy work.
Yes, that is house carpeting glued right onto the seats for that added luxury feel. Needless to say, this had to go - enter TMI and our very talented upholsterer Brian Willingham of BW Upholstery. With some new seat covers and Brian's handy work, we came out with seats that look better than they ever did, even on he showroom floor.
