Help on Interior!

I have a 66 Ford F100 in need of interior really bad. Right now I have a bench seat that is completely ugly and the foam isn't square at all, it's just lumps. I had bucket seats here that I tried making my own brackets to mount it but they won't work. I need the bracket mounts that came with the seat in order for them to work because the way their frame is. Only problem is I have NO CLUE what these came off of, I just got them for free over a year or so ago when I was in high school from an auto tech class. So looks like I have to keep the boring bench seat now. Does anyone know of any place online that I can order interior materials for my carpet, seats and headliner, etc? I don't want to go through rod doors or not hot rod company because they are way too expensive and I do not have that kind of money. Basically I need to re do my bench seat with new foam, some kind of material, do the insulation and carpet, door panels and headliner.

Also if anyone has any nice grey bucket seats with mounting brackets they want to sell them please let me know. I would rather have bucket seats in here than a bench seat that way I can have a center console with my radio in it and have the dash all smoothed out and clean.

Thanks a lot for any help!

Sorry but I also forgot to add one more thing here. I want to make a headliner for my truck but have it all smoothed out, etc so was wondering what is that kind of foam called that people use on door panels, etc? I would like to make a plain smooth headliner up top with like a tear drop look in the middle. Someone told me before that there is some certain kind of foam that is used for door panels, etc that is strong and not all soft...
I don't know maybe that isn't the right thing to use, so any help on this is appreciated too.
I don't know what material to use here either I was looking tweed since it looks nice and plain but I start itching real bad from it, I like vinyl but not sure if there are different kinds and I like Ultra Leather but that stuff is way too expensive of course. The bucket seats I have now look like tweed but they are soft and not course like tweed, I don't know what material that is. I am not sure how many of you guys have newer trucks like a 2000 Chevy truck or whatever but my father has a 2000 Chevy Crew cab dually with all grey interior. I don't know what material the carpet is but I like it, the door panels is some smooth and soft material and I like it and the headliner is some smooth and soft material as well and the seats I have no clue. Maybe someone here knows about this?
Sorry for all the questions and I know it's all just thrown in there and all bunched up but basically what I am asking is what kind of material is that that I described and just basically tips to do this stuff myself and save money.

Thanks again!

Edit* I found this website with materials and foam. How do their prices look? I am thinking about ordering some sample pieces of their vinyl of white and black.... http://www.rochfordsupply.com/
