Default World'* lamest Bonneville question......

ok..... here we go-

How do I fix the sagging nets on the back of my AL7'*?

I mean these jokers are REALLY sagging..... as in loser than a pair of blue jeans on a hip-hop rapper. We're talking BAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGY!!

I may even take a picture just to prove to the BC that my seat nets are sagging......

I need help, and so do my seats.

cut and tie the bunjie shorter?

afaik, its sewn into the INSIDE of the seat... making it rather impossible to fix and look halfway decent

i got the same problem, but unfortunately its my own fault for pulling on them when i was younger....my brother helped, so it wasn't all me

why did we do that :(

(my brother and I are also the reason for the scratches in the leather on the back seats...and most likely the reason my headliner if falling)

anyway all i did for now was kinda pull that top part to one side and tied a knot in it so it wasn't baggy

Get some small wire ties (zip ties, or whatever you want to call them) and tighten them up by pulling from each side a little. I have the same problem on my 93.

not sure if I want to cut it....... and you're thinking is along the same lines as mine in that I too think it'* sewn into the seat.

Thanks for the idea though...... :P

Yeah, I'm not really to blame on this one...... since I just recently stole the seats out of my wife'* wrecked SSE. But I'm not helping matters by throwing like 20 cd'* in each net.

I'm going to look into the knot deal..... that may work!

I like this idea also...... may try the zip ties if the knots dont work.

I wonder if we should go with a class action lawsuit against GM for sagging seat nets?!

The easiest and quickest solution I have found is just pulling each end of each elastic band and tying a knot in it. (edit: oops already mentioned)

A new solution I thought of a few weeks ago was to get some of the spring-style clips on sweatshirts and jackets and put them on the ends of the elastic bands. I just need to find some that are tan to match my seats.

The type of clip I'm talking about.

Oh cheet....... now THAT is a killer idea. You let me know where and when you find them since I need tan also.

I'll let you know! I'll be searching for some soon. I've been meaning to do this for a while. I may just find some matching ones and paint them if I have no luck.

But this way it will fix the problem permanently, and it will always be easily adjustable. It will look good too.
