TMI Products, Inc. is a family-owned company founded in 1982 by the four Tuccinardi brothers; Robert, Steve, Gene & John. The four brothers found their start in manufacturing by making Volkswagen door panels in their family garage in Torrance, California.
TMI manufactures high-quality interior automotive components such as seat upholstery, interior consoles, floor coverings, door panels, convertible roof assemblies, replacement seat foams, headliners, sun visors, as well as integrated electronic systems.
For more than 30 years TMI has specialized in developing high quality interior components for both classic and current model vehicles.
TMI has developed a highly effective process for matching interior components to the original OEM manufacturing specifications. TMI's team of design specialists examine the OEM fabric and stitching to ensure duplication is authentic and meets or exceeds all safety requirements. All leather, vinyl, and fabrics are manufactured to the original OEM specifications to achieve long-life durability and a look that matches its natural wear.
At the heart of TMI's operation, is a commitment to craftsmanship, safety, innovative design and cutting edge technology, integrated automotive products designed to meet and exceed our customer's demands. Why we choose TMI to manufacture our VW Interior Parts:
TMI uses Extruded Welt for our Upholstery. That means the color is solid all the way through so even if scuffed it is still the same color. The competition uses wrapped cord; basically a string or white plastic filament with upholstery wrapped around it. If nicked, it shows the white string or plastic inside.
Vinyl Weight; TMI, like Ford, uses heavier vinyl, 30 or 32 oz. as opposed to the 24 to 28 oz. (sometimes 30 oz.) vinyl that the competition uses. TMI Vinyl will last as long the original.
Polyester Backed Vinyl; TMI has Superior Cross-Linked Polyester Backed Vinyl made exclusively for us rather than the low cost "Off-The-Shelf" cotton backed vinyl that the competition uses. Color Correct; both TMI and the competition claim accuracy, however, TMI uses Original Material sources as benchmarks to maintain our color and continues Quality Control checks with every production run. Multi-Needle Precision; TMI has four pre-set Multi-needle sewing machines to sew the exact distance sew pattern of Mustang upholstery to replicate Ford original seam widths. Door Panel Wood Backboard; TMI uses strong top quality Masonite MFD wood for our Door Panels rather than inexpensive and weak cardboard which is subject to failure even upon installation. TMI manufactures their products in the USA
JBugs is your one-stop-shop for Volkswagen Interior Parts. We have everything from seat covers to headliners to dashboards and virtually everything in between. All of our Interior Upholstery is made in the USA by TMI.

VW Type 3 Seat Pads and Kits
We offer a complete selection of Volkswagen Seat Pads and Seat Pad Kits that are precision designed to fit each year and model of VW. Like our Volkswagen Seat Upholstery, our seat pads are guaranteed to fit perfectly.
Our Volkswagen Seat Pad kits include pre-formed injection molded high density foam rubber that is designed to fill out your seat properly and last for years. Like our seat covers, our seat pads are made by TMI in the United States and guaranteed to fit your Volkswagen Type 3 perfectly.
We highly recommend purchasing burlap or sisel pads when installing new seat foam. A layer of burlap or sisel will keep the springs from eating into the foam over time. 6 yards of burlap or 3 sheets of sisel are recommended to cover both front and rear springs.
VW Type 3 Headliners
We offer VW Headliners in a variety of materials including original perforated vinyl, crush grain vinyl and mohair as well as custom materials such as tweed and velour. We offer stock headliners so you can restore your VW Type 3 to stock. We also offer custom headliner options so you can create your own look.
Our selection of VW Headliners for the Volkswagen Type 3 includes a variety of materials and colors. Our VW headliners are made with anti-microbial treated thread which resists mildew and rot to keep you headliner tight and looking great for years.
We also recommend purchasing new headliner padding when you restore your VW Headliner. Replacing your headliner is a big job, so it makes sense to install new padding at the same time. It is easiest to install a new headliner when the seats are removed, so we suggest restoring your entire VW interior at once.
