underneath a stock cloth Bonneville seat, would it get too hot for the cloth?
I am putting a 1995-98 Bonneville cloth bench in a 1985 Chevrolet 1/2 ton truck and though I am a little apprehensive to installing seat heaters after my mom had problems with the ones in her Avalanche (she thought they were just on when she took a trip...She later found out that the seats were actually smoldering!) but hell, if I am adding any option i can to my truck, why not heated seats even though they would be used about 2 hours a year total?
