    Has anyone repaired their sagging seat pockets? That netting looks ratty and there's got to be a good way to tighten it up. I searched the forums and couldn't find any posts about this. Thanks in advance.

    I always tie a knot in the center and tell my family to treat them like a venomous duck.

    Telling them that just makes them want to mess with it even more!

    Man, I hate that too. And I couldn't find anything in forums either. Ended up using a tiny zip-tie to cinch the elastic band, and that managed to tidy up the netting as well. And you can kinda hide the loop if you're careful.

    Good luck!

    Finally something good about my dark blue interior... a small black zip tie will be almost invisible. Nice trick!

    I am definitely doing that in my 'burb tomorrow. Great idea! I did something similar with the elastic bands on my sun visors. They were sagging pretty badly so I took up the slack with safety pins.

    The visor bands I just cut off... never did really need those for anything. I guess when they made these trucks the elastic supplier was the lowest bidder!

    My '95 came with a binder clip (fancy paper clip) holding the folded over slack on the visor band.
