’78-’88 GM Door Panel Pull Straps

With earlier model Chevelles and Camaros getting more and more expensive, other models are being looked at as the foundation to a custom build. The ’78-up Malibu and Monte Carlo are great vehicles to start with considering they are lightweight and pretty uncomplicated. The problem with these cars is the interiors. There are a few items inside the car that are extremely hard to fabricate on your own and make it look right. Well, PUI helps alleviated some of that with these replacement GM door pull straps.

Sport R Foam and Seat Upholstery

Even though stock bucket seats provide more bolster than a bench seat, they still don’t hold you in place like a good set of aftermarket units. The factory seats are just too flat, but many aftermarket seats don’t look right inside a classic muscle car. TMI has cured this issue by combining the best of both worlds. The company now makes new high bolster foam that reconfigure the stock ’70 Chevelle buckets into a high bolster race-type seat and they offer the matching cover for seamless integration.
