thanks and yeah i know. I've seen some tbirds with the black smooth panel like the drivers side on the passenger side, but with it being textured idk it kind of looks out of place with one side painted and the other side not matching and it looks like a red headed step child in a room full of blondes lol ill be painting it all today and ill have pictures of it together. it should look good put together

Well the intent of the passenger side panel being textured and the same color as the dash was so the drivers side (cockpit) was distinct. To make the driver feel important

My passenger side panel has a little crack but is not visible yet, I'll have to fix it or replace it someday but was hoping to find something to texture it with. I think it looks good either way although with a black passenger side panel it looks out of place since nothing else is black in that area.

Here's my one an only pic of the interior. The seats aren't show on purpose. Split leather doesn't show well.

Somebody tell me about the seats with the wings on the side bolsters. What year vehicle are they from and are they hard to come by? Anybody got an idea on a price?

If you can't hear it before you see it...what's the point?

Cougar seats are pretty awesome. I like them better than the SC seats. You don't have the bolster to deal with.

The way I have to get in and out of the car, fold up my wheelchair and stick it behind the drivers seat the bolsters wouldn't last long. The back of the Cougar seat w/o bolsters is more contoured than the Tbird seat. The bottom looks the same but that can be fixed with foam.

So are you also painting the dash blue? Just to reinforce what others are trying to tell you that panel is supposed to match the dash, otherwise it looks out of place.

Yup If anything I'd do the dash/radio surrounds and console top the color of the dash itself and have the switch panels alone smooth and colored for symmetry. It'll actually look pretty unique like that too.

That's cool, that's pretty much the case for everyone with a non stock car actually but seeing as this is a discussion forum, questionable changes are likely to be discussed. Some may find it's painted for the sake of being painted, some may not.

It's my opinion, I use it everyday and I like it

Also look for 89-90 XR7 seats - they're the same except for Cougar emblems instead of Thunderbird.

Actually my tweed/leather seats were SC specific, 91-93 only. 89/90 SC and XR7s used the same pattern as the leather seats only in plain cloth, no emblems. 91 XR7 base seats came in the same pattern as my seats but used plain cloth in place of the leather/vinyl and jersey in place of the tweed, they had XR7 embossed where the bird is.

I'm almost positive I seen an early SC'd XR7 in the junkyard one time with red SC style seats, except with "XR7" embossed in them...

It was likely a 91 5.0 XR7, they were identical to the SC XR7s minus the 3.8 and a few exterior changes. That was the only year XR7 was embossed in the seat

I found a black set with a fold down rear seat, only reason I didn't grab them was the drivers seat was torn and the back seat bottom was MIA. Now that I look back on it I should have grabbed what I could. That rear seatback in itself may possibly be the rarest thing these cars ever had.

Found a few pics of the base 91 XR7 seats. You can see the resemblance in patterns with my 91 SC seats.
