What color are the sides of your seats?? Black or charcoal? Asking because the Saleen headrests are black and they seem a bit off next to the stock charcoal seats. I have the Saleens in mine and the more I look at this thread, the more I think this maybe a winter project.
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)

We had red inserts on the Katzins as well.
The red is a LITTLE off like said compared to stock but I opted not to put in the
side panel replacements that Katzkin offers for free because the install shop told me
they seemed to not last long and wrinkle or droop.
Could have been B.S. from them because it was a dealership that installed them but
who knows. It was not enough of a difference to me to matter.
