    hey hot rod, just so you know, i am really skinny. I cant expand the seat cover enough to make it crease anyway. I was just saying that with some "other" people that may be a factor. Ive seen a lot of cars with tighter fitting covers and they seem to rip at the seams

    I ain't Fat! And I ain't skinny. I'm just a large person. I was never able to quite get comfy in my 'Vette or my Van but My Caddy's just right! I have Diamond button pleated seats in my Seville and they're very nice. I very much like the gathered look and feel, Not a big fan of the perforated seats. I'ts probably lame but to my way of thinking it's like buying seats with holes in them and it seems like as they age they would have more of a tendancy to rip!

    That was basically what i was saying in the 1st place!!! I dont think it is so much of the holes in them already but moreso the fact that it is so tight

    On the topic of seats I'd like to find some black leather buckets that are very suportive, with or without heat, prefer power, and have the Caddy sheild and wreath on them. What models should I be looking in?

    Just so Elwesso doesn't look like an insane maniac - I split this topic into another thread and put it into the General Discussion forum. This thread went off-topic discussing movies - and that's what Wes' last comment was in reference to..

    The hole in my seats is as big as my knee.. Sucks for me.. I'll need new leather seat covers now...

    Suck. You may just put a sheepskin cover over it for now, or you could use DUCT TAPE. I am truly surprised that we havent referred to duct tape once in this forum. It is truly what holds this world together!

    redneck!!!!! I use duct tape all the time, and i am not a redneck. I believe it to be americas cure all. Hell, there are NASCAR people using duct tape on their cars if something is out of place (ive seen it).

    I didn't say you were a redneck, I said duct tape the redneck cure-all. As far as Nascar is concern.....not comments on them
    I'm more of a NHRA kinda guy and a SCCA guy.


    p.s.
    I think this is going away from the seats again

    Ok. I didnt think you would imply that i was a redneck (although in Indiana you can never be sure). Yes i believe that we got off topic again, but at least not as bad as before.

    Sal, how did you get such a big hole in your seat? (or maybe how big is your knee )

    BTW, they really arent "perforated" (that is what business reply mail cars are), but rather "holy". Thats just my view

    The hole in my seat is just the size of an average knee. It's not that huge or anything. It just... sucks...
