TMI Products’ New Sport R Interiors

Published by Naseem Muaddi on November 23rd, 2012

When creating a contemporary interior for an old-school car, it’s important to keep elements of its past intact. Otherwise, you run the risk of destroying its unique character and history.

TMI Products – a leading manufacturer of custom, contract and original automotive interiors – does just that.

We’ve already told you about TMI’s Sport Seats – a line of reproduction foam cushions and upholstery designed with higher bolsters for a sportier look and feel. Now check out its all-new Sport R line.

Featuring modern updates, like suede inserts and bold contrast stitching, the R line takes the company’s popular Sport Seats to the next level. Custom door panels, consoles and one-piece headliner boards are also included in the new lineup.

No doubt, the R line’s balance of contemporary design and old school charm will leave you impressed. My only complaint is that TMI now embroiders its logo on all of its seats.

TMI explains:

Our sport seats have been knocked off and reproduced by quite a few other manufacturers so just like many of the other Racing style seat companies, we are now branding our seats.

It’s not ideal, but I guess a company can’t be knocked for protecting its brand.

Earlier this month, TMI showed off some of its new designs at SEMA 2012. Take a look and let us know what you think in the comment section below.

    i’ve worked with their items before. They are ok. They do quite a bit in the Volkswagen market. These seats are an itneresting idea. Curious about the material quality. And, oh my goodness, that logo has GOT to go. It is Too Much Information on the seat.

      Too Much Information- ahahahah!
      Installed a set of these on 70 Mach 1 not too long ago. They were all vinyl with comfort weave inserts, definitley wasn’t the cheapest vinyl ever. They fit well and I really like the “resto-mod” look. Biggest complaint would be they use velcro for listings on the back rests, which gets a thumbs down from me personally.

  3. I’m not a fan of the embroidered logo either (though I have to admit, they picked a cool place to put it).

    I like their designs. Like Naseem said, they’re a neat blend of old school and modern.
