Episode Notes

We previously showed you how to install a Katzkin leather interior on our Ford F-150 project truck back in season one. With our S197 Ford Mustang nearing completion and getting a lot of exposure on the show, we had a lot of requests from viewers to show them how to upgrade their stock cloth interior with aftermarket leather. Who are we to let them down?

In this episode we show you how to upgrade your stock cloth seats in a 2008 Ford Mustang GT. We went with Katzkin leather interiors once again due to their fast turnaround time, ability to configure a custom color scheme, and amazing quality. The fitment is always the best we’ve seen, and this install was no exception. I didn’t even cut a single finger this time!

At Katzkin’s website you can configure your materials, colors, piping, stitch color, and so much more. You can even get something custom (like a logo) stitched into the seat-back or headrest. Once you’ve picked out your custom seats, just watch this episode to see how to install them!

Also, we admittedly did re-use the same intro from our previous Katzkin episode. It was just so good, we couldn’t resist!

  1. this install looks easier than I thought. i'll have to show it to my buddy who's got a s197. or is it harder than it looks?

  2. I have to admit this was my 3rd interior install of Katzkin leathers, but it really wasn't very difficult. Just a lot of labor. The important thing is to take your time so you don't mess something up!

  3. Sweden? Awesome… hope the episodes help a bit with some of the vehicles sold over there. Are there many Mustangs?

  4. Great video duke, can you give any good tips on cleaning and conditioning them to keep them looking good.

  5. I got tired just watching you struggle through the removal and installation, and you did a fine job. Thanks for another super episode of Motorz. The video and editing was also top notch.

  6. as always you made a very very nice video keep it things like that man 5* greetin´s from Aguascalientes, Mexico and thank soo much for the sticker

  7. I've done this already by salvaging a damaged seat's leather from another ford onto cloth seats. Its not all that hard but this tutorial probably would have helped me especially on those headrest things the first one took me forever to get it right. Overall great episode guys. keep up the good work.

  8. Thanks for the video! at first i thought that I was going to have to spend a ton of money getting leather installed but thanks to your video now I can do it myself. Good thing my friend suggested this video.

  9. Great video, i’m about to get the leather for my 2010 mustang and was wondering how much did it cost to buy the Katzkin Leather?

  10. Chris and the rest of you guys ay Motorz… ROCK!!! I have done so many upgrades to my Stang watching you guys….again. YOU GUYS ROCK!!!

  11. These are older episodes of Motorz. All our videos on YouTube were accidentally deleted, so we had to re-upload them all :( If you check the motorz.tv website, you’ll see we’ve been cranking them out for the past 4 years!

  14. MSRP is $1995 for a Premium interior, 2 Row interior. You will probably find it a lot less through retailers.

  15. No way I would have tackled this job on my 2012 without this video. There are minor differences primarily with different headrests on my 2012 Mustang.
