Re: My 65 LS Swap Project

I still need to run the drain hose, thinking about going thru the kickpanel rather than thru the firewall. I believe there are drain holes in the outer cowl where the kickpanel vents plug into.

That's what I did, used a couple 90"s to keep it close to floorboard and kick panel and out the hole in the lower cowl, you can see the edge of it (white piece) under one of the hoses.https://www.chevelles.com/forums/att...4&d=1575163180

I wish they could dial down that logo. Looks like they offer pretty good support, which really helps you enjoy the drive.

Either way, they'll look good in your car.

I read that you can get them less logo but it'll cost you an upcharge!

The one thing that surprised me when I first opened the box was that there is a zipper on the back of the uprights! Sort of unsightly. I'll take a picture of it tonight.

I was unaware of this when doing the research but there's nothing I can do about it now. I'm sure I've looked at several sets over the last few years and don't recall seeing a zipper.

Re: My 65 LS Swap Project

Found a picture from an Ebay add.....

Since the zipper is black it really sticks out on my red seats.

Re: My 65 LS Swap Project

I asked if I could get them without the logo, they told me that was the one piece they couldn't customize. It is right in your face though...

Really? I read a Facebook post where a guy from TMI responded to several guys complaining about the logo and he said it could be done. Guess it depends on who you talk to!

Dan does your seats have the zipper on the back also?

Mike, what material did you use to cover the heater hose clamps? I should have thought of doing that. I've had to reach up in there a couple times and cut myself on the sharp end of a clamp.

Re: My 65 LS Swap Project

So I have a fairly old Custom AutoSounds USA-6 stereo. I know there's a lot of better head units out there now but didn't want to wrap up another $500-$800 starting over and I had modified my dash bezel to fit it years ago. The speakers I have are Kenwood 50 watt RMS and seemed OK but always thought they needed an amp to bring them to life. Plus i wanted a way to stream music so I bought this:




Hope it will work as advertised! Can stream directly to the amp, also has a USB port to use for charging phone. Think I'm going to mount it under the rear seat and run the handheld under the carpet and exit under the seat. USB cord too.

Re: My 65 LS Swap Project

I also just checked mine and the zipper is down the center of the back but doesn't show up as bad on the black. And the colored stitching isn't used on the zipper.

Hi tech stuff, cut up inner tube and zip ties. Was afraid I might hear a rattle on the inner fender.

I was working with Michael Koldus from TMI when I ordered up mine...and I agree, maybe it was just who you talk to.

Here is part of that email exchange...

One more question. Do the seats come with that TMI logo on the upper seat by the shoulder? Is there anyway I can have that NOT on there? Probably not as it's your product, but figured I would ask.

Hello Daniel,



I apologize as we are unable to remove the tmi products logo but the good thing is the stitch is the same as color of the seat so its not like a black seat with a bright green logo or anything.

That looks more offical than what I read on Facebook!

That hose appears to have numerous bends from what I could find. Did you find it necessary to have multiple 90 bends or would one single one suffice? Here's the Gates 19201 and the Gates 19045 that rmc65elco mentioned. Hopefully they are accurate representations!
