No Dan, I was referring to a aftermarket leather kit installation, which regardless of your beliefs would apply to their application because its a low dry heat. As, the leather is going to get the same effect when you slap the car outside on a nice hot sunny day. This process just speeds it up a bit.

one a nice expensive hide, if it was saggy.. to me patterns are wrong hence why if I have a nice big job, I will make the cover out of vinyl first to test fitment of patterns

I do agree with you on the headliner as scrim! same effect and many people whine on prices of materials!
