The older, the tighter?

Auto Motor Klassiek » Practice and technology » The older, the tighter?

Sometimes cars are very different from people. Over the years, people usually get a bit looser in their skin. That is comfortable.

With some cars, however, the skin tighter over the years. That sounds better than it is. The thin plastic covering of door panels works loosely from the round or sharper corners and becomes as tight as a drumhead. That will have to do with the evaporation of the plasticizers in the plastic.

The question is: how do you get the cover glued back into place? We know products such as LeakLock. They make old, tired and leaking simmer rings youthful again because they contain fresh plasticizers.

But what happens in the dark and warm interior of an engine block on upholstery?

Suggestions are welcome.
