TMI sucks....
I've done two of their interiors now... never again.

Sewfine is probably worth looking into...I knew a guy who swore by their stuff...

I heard thru the grapevine that TMI is making both WCM and WW interiors now?

Don't think that holds water...The decade old TMI stuff I've got looks like crap compared to friends' new WW stuff.

Did another interior with a TMI kit. Damn does TMI interiors suck....
This time it was the carpet kit. Frayed edges, and it just doesn't fit. The whole kit is too narrow. Don't quite know what i'm going to do to make it work.
Good thing this isn't my personal car.....
My car is getting a Sewfine...

I used sewfine for my oval restoration. Got custom made seat covers, door panels and the look alike german square weave for the carpet. Used their mohair headliner for the roof and rag top. Their canvas now covers the outside of my ragtop as well. The stuff is well made, fits, and they're a joy to deal with. I haven't tried anyone else but I will definatley use them again.

TMI is decent but basic. Fit isn't great, materials aren't great.

Sew fine is better.

Wolfsburg West is best as I recall.

Sitting on a very nice looking WW carpet kit of our own now, embroidered edges and correct for `69-only windshield defrost levers.

Come on you guys... TMI products are sold by nearly everyone but Sewfine. Their door panels, seat covers and headliners are good quality. Their carpet is not. Thats why Wolfsburg west makes their own carpet kits. For a true original style interior, your only choices are TMI or West Coast Classics.
