Super comfortable upgrade good looking seats
I bought these on sale. So, i was happy with that. When I was done the only misgivings I had was the latches on the back of the seats didn't have plates to cover the holes. A very small issue. I've been using these seats now since 9/16 to 05/17. I drive it every workday and some weekends without any issue. Note. when fitting there was no need to modify the angle of head rest to fit. Warm the covers in the sun and cover the foam in slick plastic before zipping them up.Helpful (12)

Like any mustang on the far end of its second decade, the interior was due for some tlc. It was a fight to install these seats and a second hand is recommended at times, but overall, I love the way these seats look. Perfect way to make your car feel just a bit more modern.Helpful (13)

I don't know why I didn't order them sooner, They look AWESOME! They are 5 times more comfortable that the original equipment seats. They were not to difficult to install. I have no upholstery training and they went in quite easily. Overall great value, definitely worth 2 to 3 times what they cost. DID I SAY I LOVE THEM???Helpful (12)

My 2000 mustang GT is painted black/red. These black/red vinyl upholstery seats fit my mustang perfectly. I would recommend to all my friends to buy this kit Sport R500.Helpful (12)
Do these seats use the power controls? Are the driver power seat controls still work after installing these seats? Or are the controls lost after installation?
This is an upholstery kit so you will be using the original seat and controls. You actually strip the old upholstery off of the seat and reupholster it with the kit.
Why does this kit say it will not fit the cobras? If the front seat foams are replaced then what is the difference? Is it the rear seat foam?
Unfortunately, this kit was made to work with the V6 and GT model mustang and will not fit properly with the Cobra Mustangs due to a few differences between the models including the seat sizes. We apologize for the inconvenience.
The question was asked about it fitting a power seat and everyone said its just a cover so yes it will....but the drivers power controls are on the bottom front and the power seat is different than non power. So has anyone installed these on a power seat? The TMI pictures show a non power seat.
Unfortunately, we do not have any product photos showingthe fitment on the power seats but this upholstery kit will work with the power seat controls on the bottom of the front seats and will not have an issue with fitment when being installed.
Will these fit with the upgraded head rests that come with the mustangs that got the IUP ( interior upgrade package )
The TMI Premium Sport R500 Upholstery & Foam Kit will fit all 1999-2004 Mustang Interiors.
Is there a video showing how to install the rear seats upholstery?
At this time we do not have an installation video available for these seat foam and upholstery covers. These are intended to be installed by a professional interior/upholstery shop and they generally have all the required tools needed for this job. Give us a call at any time if you need assistance with the install process of these kits.
We do not happen to sell the convertible version of this upholstery at the moment, we only have the coupe upholstery available in this style.
Hi, The instructions that we have listed on the item page for this TMI Premium Sport R500 Upholstery & Foam Kit - Black Vinyl & Red Stripe/Stitch are not convertible specific the standard head rest in 99-04 mustang convertible are not tiltable. The Upholstery designated for the convertible will fit your seats. We do not carry hog ring or hog ring pliers.
The TMI Premium Sport R500 Upholstery & Foam Kit - Black Vinyl & Black Stripe/Stitch (99-04 All) will not come with the foam for the rear seats. You will want to use the factory foam for the rear seats.
You will be able to re use the factory seat belts with the TMI Premium Sport R500 Upholstery & Foam Kit without having to alter them in anyway.
Check out some of the reviews of the new model R500's and you'll note they are all from first time installers. We took great effort into making this our easy upholstery to install and CJ's actually has a great 'how to' video on installation of one of the R500 Highbacks. A helpful tip is to make sure the new upholstery is warmed up, either by leaving it out in the sun if possible, or by setting it near a heater, you can also use a fabric steamer as you install each section. Once the vinyl is warmed up it is MUCH more pliable and easier to install!
Hello - installation is tedious but can be tackled by a non-installer who has good technical know how - it will require patience, and strong hands :) There are several videos available showing step by step installation and the product will also come with instructions. Foams are a separate item and will be installed first , then the upholstery over the foams.
Although I have never purchased, nor installed this kit, I would think it is not to difficult. To do so remove the entire assembly from your car so access is not difficult. Remove the old Upholstery carefully so you understand how it fits. Warning: If your Mustang Seats have Emergency Airbags these will NOT work.
will work fine
The headrest is actually within the upholstery kit. These seats feature a taller upper section than your standard seat, giving a cleaner look and more comfortable feel. There is a corresponding diagram in our product photos that shows exactly what I mean as well. Hope this helps!
This kit uses all the stock pieces of the seat and just replaces the foam and the upholstery, these aren't new seats just something to freshen up your current ones
