Depends on the theme of the car, and personal choice.
Terry
Yep! The car is my ´56...kinda late sixties Hot Rod style. Full white interior except the carpet which will be black. Muncie shifter ivory ball sticking through the floor...C1 corvette steering wheel...white dash etc.

My choice would be tuck and roll, most important is the layout or design how it's applied to the seats/panels. My problem has been comunicating exactly how i want the job done to the upholstery man.
Good luck

Tuck and roll or roll and pleat for me:)
Never much cared for the diamond pleat in it's heyday even in full blown customs

For me the diamond is a little dated, but that might be the look you are after.At least the white will hide some of the wear of the extra stitching.I have seen some older black diamond vinyl seats that look bad after years of use.I like the roll as it probably never will be dated.

I've got all white uphostery in my 55 and I chose tuck & roll. That was in 1990 and still prefer it today. :tu
