1991-1993 Ford Mustang

Who’s ready for an upgrade to their Ford Mustang GT? Chances are your seats are a prime candidate, as they take a lot of abuse over the years, resulting in wear and tear. Transform your old seats into something that will make an impression with the new Sport Seat kits from TopsOnline.

 

There are two main varieties to match your ride. First are Sports R seat cover kits that have a pattern reminiscent of the factory original seat covers (but in the sports seat style) with suede bolsters and contrast stitching. Then there are the Sports R500 seat cover kits which have dual Rally stripes and several contrast stitching options.

 

These seat cover conversion kits come with new high-density, molded seat foam included in the price. This is necessary because original seat covers from the factory were glued to the foam on the seats, meaning that any removal of the seat covers automatically destroys the foam underneath. TMI’s Sports Seats conversion kits address that need by including the foam for both front seats in the kit, so they will fit these new body-contouring covers. (FYI, this glue problem is not an issue on the back seat, which is why no rear seat foam should be needed, and is not included).

 

Seat kits come with options for low-back or high-back styles. If you choose hi-back options then the new seat foam will fit over your original headrest. Low-back styles will receive replacement headrest covers.

 

Some model years (1994 and beyond) have a Sport X and Sport XR series option, which have a more modern look with grommet accents in a variety of metal finishes and stitch accents for a very customized look that will fit your individual style. Model years 2004 through 2010 have a Sport RS option as well.

The 1991-1993 Ford Mustang convertible models included the GLX, GT, and LX, and came with a two-piece style top from the factory. You have four choices for buying a replacement top for this model:

  1. Top Kit. Includes the main top cover section, window section, top pads, side cables, and tacking strips. An assembled front convertible top header seal is included with the top. (This is not the same as the front rubber weather strip).
  2. Top With Window. Includes the main top cover section and the window section.
  3. Top cover section only. You will only receive the front section of the convertible top ready for installation (no sewing required). You will not receive any materials related to the window section, your existing window section has to stay on the car.
  4. Window section only. You will receive a new window laminated to a new material known as window curtain ready for installation (no sewing required).

The tops are available in either Pinpoint Vinyl (Black, Ford Oxford White, Dark Blue, Tan, or Buckskin) or Stayfast Cloth (Black or Tan).

In addition to replacement convertible tops, we also sell:

  • Headliner
  • Well liner
  • Top pads
  • Top cables
  • Tacking strips
  • Boot cover

Q: What fabrics do you offer for Ford Mustang convertible tops?

A. We offer quality replacement convertible tops for Mustangs by both EZ On and Robbins. Depending on the model year, we offer tops in pinpoint vinyl, Haartz Stayfast cloth (also known as Canvas & Mohair), Twilfast RPC cloth, and sailcloth textured vinyl for more recent models.

 

For each model year, we will let you know which fabrics were the factory style – for example, the factory top material for the 1987 and 1988 Ford Mustang was the pinpoint vinyl for white tops, and the Stayfast cloth for all other colors.

 

As with all of our convertible tops, regardless of which model year and factory style cloth originally was used for your Ford Mustang, we can always substitute a different cloth. All of the materials we offer can be customized and swapped in, just let us know what color and material you want, and we will be happy to order it for you!

Here are some of the questions we received from our customers this week.  Hopefully these will help you as well as you are researching convertible tops!

1993 mustang convertibleQuestion: We are re-doing a 1993 Mustang for my daughter’s birthday. If we change the color of the top, do I need to buy the window section? Her window section is in good shape, but it is black; we want to go with tan. Do you have a special price for packaged items? We need a headliner, pads, new top and I think that is it unless we need something else? Thanks, Martha.

Answer: Mustang convertible top windows have material that borders the window.  So, when you change the color of the Mustang top, you will need to replace the rear window; if you do not, you will have a convertible top of one color with a window border of a different color.  To answer your second question, yes, we do offer packaged items at a better overall price when compared to buying items a la carte; you can view our ’93 Mustang convertible top selection here.

Question: How much does it cost to have a professional install a convertible top?  Can you recommend anyone in Orlando, FL?  Thanks, James R.

Answer: Great question!  Each trim shop and installer will have their own hourly rate; some may offer periodic specials as well.  For this reason, there is no “standard” rate to install a convertible top.  Therefore, it’s best to contact several trim shops directly to get their rates and compare prices.  Please visit our Installer page, here; you might wish to start by checking with John’s Auto Upholstery & Convertible, Orlando, FL 32802 (407-299-9552).

Question: Does this Chrysler Sebring convertible top come with the staples and glue needed for installation?

Answer: Great question, because not many people realize that many makes and models of convertible tops require staples and glue to be used when installing a new convertible top.  This is true for many cars, including the Chrysler Sebring convertible, pre-2004 Mustang convertible, and many other models.  Regarding staples and glue, we do not carry them for purchase, for two reasons.  First, glue is considered a hazardous substance when shipping, due to its high flammability; this would make it cost-prohibitive to ship to our customers.  Second, there are so many variety of staplers that a customer might have, that it is easier for our customers to purchase them locally; this ensures that they get the staples that fit the stapler they already have.  For this reason, the instructions that we include with the convertible top include a few recommendations for adhesive brands and staples that you can find easily at the local hardware store; that is the best place to purchase glue and staples for your convertible top.
