Check out the PIMP PROJECT here in custom interiors. Very well worth the time. Many pictures.

This guy from across the ocean really knows his shit.

He does a breakdown on a seat for his car.

Props to you Joost.

get the material, use foam so it "puff up", get the plexiboard, staple the material to the back of the plexi-board, use the buttoms with the long metal clips. push the buttoms as far to the board as you can, and staple the metal clips to the board. is that what you were looking for ricardo?
like my red inserts for my battery covers? thats biscuit tuck...

There are several different ways to do it. If you look closely at some of the custom interiors you can see there is a big difference in quality of the tucks which comes about in the method used, plus the skill of the upholsterer. There was an article in Lowrider magazine, maybe ten years or so ago, that described one very good way of doing it(happened to be one of the very few tech articles LRM has ever done that was actually worth the paper it was written on). I'll see if I can find the article. If you want a good example of the way biscuit tuck is supposed to be done, look at the Lifestyle cars that were done by Bob & Sons.

I remember that, they were doing trunk inserts on John Kennedy's T-Bird. :cheesy:
