I reupholstered some seats on my last car ('68 Nova) and would assume if anything, these would be a bit easier.
And BTW, where did you buy yours??
They look great BTW!!!
Sides on mine are the black, yes, it is a little darker than the stock charcoal, but with the red/black theme, the contrast was most important to me, and I was ditching the charcoal anyway. The Saleen's also seem a tiny bit darker than the Ford charcoal, and match up well.
I did upholstery on my '67 'stang, and yeah, doing the current vintage cars is MUCH easier. Many things now are held on with plastic clips and velcro, not the dozens of hog rings on an older car. (though you will need an inexpensive set of hog ring pliers for the few that are in the seats to do the job right)
