Listing Material?

I'm coming towards the end of my first major practice project with the 1970 Cadillac drivers seat back. The next thing is the listing. What should I use for it?

I use pre-made Typar listings that come in large rolls. Typar is the same thing Tyvek house wrap is made from. I keep 3 different sizes on hand, 1" 1 1/2" and 2" wide listings with cord sewn into them. If I don't need the cord I just take it out. The cord is sewn in with a chain stitch, so it comes out very easily.

You can really use almost any reasonably durable fabric. Denim decking material works fine, as does Versare.

Yes, that's denim decking material, or at least that's what I call it. You can make your own if you want, it can be made out of just about anything that will hold a hog ring. Did it have wires in it?

Yep, it had wires in it. What about making it from a pair of old blue jeans?

It doesn't need to be that thick. You're thinking of a different type of denim. I'm talking about the kind of denim used for decking material under seat cushions on a couch, not the kind of denim used to make blue jeans.

UPS dropped it off yesterday. This is one tough material. Is this stuff a polymer?

Typar is made from polypropylene, which is a thermoplastic polymer. It has 33 lbs of tear strength.

It seems like real tough stuff and it won't rot either.

Right you are, it's tough as nails and won't rot in any way. Earlier in this thread, I said that Typar and Tyvek house wrap were made of the same thing. While that is true, they both are made from polypropylene, Typar is 5 times tougher than Tyvek.
