RE: [DML] Re: Ripples or No Ripples?



Okay, I pulled out my sets of OEM leather in storage and they are
rippled.  I looked at the original brochures and yes they are rippled.  

The problem is that I can't remember seeing an original set on a car
that was not tight.  I even have a car that was never registered with
400 miles on it that has tight seats.

Even when I go to car shows, every car has tight seats with no ripples.
Those with ripples have been replaced....

So, James I am wrong, but even my car that I purchased in 1983 had tight
seats...

Absolutely no doubt, the seats should have ripples, and did come with
ripples when the car was new. I beg to differ with Jack here, as I
can't imagine a car that has been stored indoors its entire life NOT
having ripples. Here's a photo of a NOS seat bottom I just pulled from
the warehouse and dusted off:

I wouldn't hazard to guess what makes the leather shrink like the ones
in most DeLoreans today - UV, heat, cold, age? But the remaining NOS
ones here in the warehouse would suffer only from age - and they
aren't shrunk. Anyone who was at the KAPAC warehouse knows that it was
not temperature controlled, though everything was protected from
sublight. Same way here in Houston...

The photo on page 103 of SSI shows an interior - and it's partially
rippled, which incidentally is how the new seat covers look after
they've been in service for some time. A few pages earlier, on 101,
shows the grey seats with ripples, too.
