Ripples on pleated seat panel

Is it normal for my pleated seat panels (top stitched to 1/2" sewfoam) to have ripples? Will they disappear when I stretch the seat cover onto the seat? I don't want to start my other panels if I'm doing something wrong. The fabric is a faux suede, not Ultraleather, with a woven white backing.

All fabrics act differently, but those wrinkles should come out when the seat cover goes on. You may want to make the panels slightly smaller front to back, say 1/4" to 1/2".

What did you glue the fabric on with?

Good morning Dan. Thanks for the response. I used "Dan Tack Foam and Fabric" (# 2012) Spray Adhesive in an aerosol can.

Then you should be just fine. If the wrinkles don't come out when you put on the seat cover, they will come out when the seat gets warmed by the sun.
