1972 Montego GT 429 – May 2014 Updates

received my seats back from the upholsterer.
The seat covers are from Dearborn. I had the upholsterer cut out the imitation comfortweave (knitted vinyl) and install the true comfortweave.
It took 6 months, but I finally found some of the real deal comfortweave. I had enough to do all seats except the back of the rear seat.
We used the original material from the original cover sewn into the new cover.
