You are right, I only sewed it once. Actually, sewing it again would be counterproductive, since you need to make relief cuts as you go around the corners of the door jambs, and those should be made as close to the original stitch line as possible. I used polyester #92 thread, which is the best to stand up to UV rays, and unless you cut into the thread when you're making your relief cuts, it should last a lifetime in a car.

BTW, I love it when you and Alan ask questions. You guys always ask something that everyone can benefit from.
