Modern seat construction

Here are some pictures of how the manufacturers are assembling seats now days. The first picture shows a product called Velstick that is a hard plastic version of the hook side of Velcro attached in grooves to the foam on the seat, and a loose piece. I buy it in 4 foot sections.
The second picture shows the orange yarn sewed onto the seams that mates with the Velstick. The third picture shows the gauze tape that I use to replace the orange yarn. There are other versions of the loop side of velcro that can be used to mate with the Velstick. the last picture is the finished seat. This technology replaces the wires in listings that were hog ringed on. Wires in listings are still used by some manufacturers. I saw one seat recently that had springs attached to the wires that were attached to the seat springs. This new technology sure makes it easy to assemble a seat.

Not surprised. Like everything else on late model cars, there is nothing there of substance. Gauges, body parts, suspension parts, etc., these things are so integrated when you try to salvage a component for hot rod use, there is nothing there.

I agree with you about all of that, but actually, the seat construction now days is very good. Everything under the fabric is very well constructed. This seat came out of the rear of an Olds Aurora, and would make a great seat in a hot rod.
