Yes the heat gun also helps to stretch it for a nice snug fit. it safely stretches when heated

Any idea how well it sticks to fabric?

My red SVT door panel inserts are driving me crazy with my Recaros, but I don't want to go all out and remove them to re-cover them...

Awesome thank you. I didnt want to rush into it and just say blah to the heat gun and get it all ugly and messed up. Glad to took my time to ask a question on this one. Ill post up some pics when I get around to doin this to my car.

The adhesive wont stick to fabric very well sadly.
