New interior mods

I flipped a set of BroncoII seats I had sitting around this past week. I decided to swap my Mustang GT seats for them. recovered in charcoal suede and vinyl. Emblems came from a 64-6 Mustang with the Pony package.

man, these seats are so comfy in the truck. when you sit down in them, the bolsters are real firm, and you sink down in the middle. very nice. got to check out how the seat heaters are holding up as well. i had a burnt section in each of the driver's pads. i had a spot that felt like it was getting really hot. now i know why. but being carbon fiber heaters, you can cut them and they still work. so i assume it's the same with burns as they are still working. put them on the passenger side as they don't get as much use there.


and now the other piece i worked on. passenger side false panel (airbag cover)

Korey, I wrapped a ranger wheel once in black suede. I made the cover. Never again will I do that. You can buy a wheelskin off ebay though. they are great quality and easy for the DIY'er.

Good call on putting them emblem on! When you posted the pics in the other thread it looked like too much, but now that I see them in the truck it looks great!

Haha yeah I'd imagine that it would be crazy hard. I actually have one of those wheelskin ones on my steering wheel currently, and although it is alright it isn't OEM looking like I want.

Thanks guys!

Taylor, anytime! send me a message before and i'm game.

Korey, Ebay is your best bet. I actually have a black leather wrapped wheel from a mustang sitting in my bedroom. pulled it out of my truck. but it won't work in a ranger without swapping parts of the steering column.
