Upgrading the fox mustang interior is typically at the top of most people's list. Here with me today is Dean from TMI products to tell us one of the ways we can do just that. Jonathan thank you for having us here we are very excited to be here with you.

Great deal man! Dean tell me a little bit about TMI. TMI Products was found in 1992. It stands for Tuccinardi manufacturing incorporated which is named after the four brothers who founded the company and mostly starting Volkswagen interiors and then moved into mustang interiors in about 1994. About 6-7 years ago we got in the fox body mustang and late model mustangs. That’s pretty cool uh... didn't know that about TMI I always thought it was too much information. Not exactly sometimes people think that that but we try to get as much information as possible about great interiors. Well now how long have you been with TMI and what exactly do you do there I'm the general manager and started there about
nine years ago and enjoy it but I’ve always been in the automotive aftermarket including several years in the mustang part of it as well.

Onto the star of the show, 03-04 cobra style upholstery and seat foam for fox mustangs. Dean what makes other than the obvious looks what makes this so much better than stock sport seats well several things. The number one thing is it’s got a 3-4 more inches of bolstering then stock seats. this is based on the SVO Mustang from 84-86 ford put a much more aggressive bolstered seat we've adapted that to the regular fox body GTs and LX 5.0 type of Mustangs and so you got extra bolstering here also the density and the resiliency and cushioning of this seat foam is superior to what is originally offered with it.

It is really the foundation of an excellent seating position as well as the strength to hold you in place when you are doing some performance cornering. That sounds pretty cool Dean. How about the upholstery well the great thing about the upholstery is that we use all the original vinyl on the outside seat trim and side bands but we also have the suede insert which is much more comfortable in the summer and in the winter. It’s just like sitting on cloth it doesn't have that temperature transfer that you typically get on a vinyl or leather product and then we also match it with the SVO style French seam stitching on the outside instead of the typical GT style has a has a wealth on their so it looks a little more upscale a more modern while being more comfortable as well.

The other major thing is that we use all the same original Ford factory attachment methods including these plastic clips on the outside edge and all the same listing loops panels on the inside attach it to the foam and the seat frame properly. So it looks like a factory finish. That is no different than if you just did a regular GT installation as opposed to doing this and then you get the additional bolstering and much more performance and comfort out of the product. Wow it’s like getting a whole brand new 03-04 SVT Cobra seat while keeping your stock seat frame and reusing stock seat attachment
