TMI Products New Bullitt Seat Foam/Upholstery

So This company seems pretty legit especially since my V6 leather seats are torn to shreds. Basically they offer a number of different seat options including bullit,mach 1, and cobras. I think the Bullitt seats would look better with my interior. Best part about the bullitt seats is that they are available in more than just black (parchment, oxford white, and graphite). Anyway my question is how hard is it to re-upholster seats SN-95 Seat? From TMI's website/CJ pony parts you need the different foam, however you do utilize the stock metal/frames from your seats. So once I have the new foam how hard is it to put it on the upholstery? Has anyone used this company? Trying to get some reviews. $650 for some new matching bullitt colored seats is not that bad ($950 for leather), but want to make sure I'm not getting over my head with the install. What you guys think?
Thanks.

Ok. I'm def not in Ohio, but thank you. I know I can take the old seats out, old foam out, just a little worried about screwing up the new upholstery. Any Tips on here you can tell me? I'm so busy at work now that I won't have a chance to call you. I don't even have the seats yet, but was just trying to get some input. I emailed TMIProducts and am awaiting to hear back what they have to say on the install. I do not think that you have to stitch/sew anything as it looks pretty straight forward. Any Special tool?

the way ur seats are designed compared to the bullitt or mach one on the tni site,, when u turn ur seat upside down, here u ware gunna have to use ur basic hand tools sockets screwdriver phillips, ect..... ur gunna take the seat apart just remember how u took it apart to put it back together again. the material is not sewn on the foam, there is however foam under the material, and foam on the metal parts of the frame. once u have seat taken apart thete are metal hooks holding the material down get a pair of needle nose pliers twist and pull once u have all the hog rings out start on one side pushing down to relueve some of te stress the material is under from being a tight fit. u can either do one side or alternate between the two sides wiich is what i recommend u do. these seats ur getting is already sewn together, the foam they are talking about is that same yellow foam just formed different to match the seat covers

Are you sure ray? Just to have the already made panels hooked to the seat??? I could see if they had to cut and sew all the panels then disassemble and the reassemble. But hell it only took me 3 days to completely rip apart the motor to my truck and put it back together...

no he asked if he bought the material how much it would cost. to just replace the seat covers tem selves a good couple hours. i can make a write up with pics or even a video and post to show how to do it!! hell i can do mine and still go through the motions as if i was starting mine. buying premade seat covers is cheaper but no satisfaction can come from knowing u redid ur seats from scratch. well atleast to me give me this weekend and i will get a video together for u guys. a step by step instructions so it makes it easier for u to be able to do them ur self.

I would say around 4-5 hours to re upholster both front seats if you have never done it before

Re: TMI Products New Bullitt Seat Foam/Upholstery

I never said I was going to start from scratch. Yea I saw the cobra ones also which may be what I go with. The bullitts caught my eye first so it will be a toss up between the two. Just FYI Corbeau quoted me at 800 to have any of their seats put in parchment color, which I think is ridiculous sine the pair cost just that so I would be Looking at $1600 to get just two bucket corbeaus in parchment. I'm def going to do it Myself and I'll also throw a write up in here as its going to be a hell of a fun project. Thanks for the Information Ray. I'll post pics later of my current V8 swap that's well underway.
