After reading all the reply's, and forward post by some...all I can say is thank you! I really, really appreciate it. I decided to fix the problem with black 100 mile an hour tape...being an old soldier, 100 mile an hour tape fixes everything :-) I lined the white part with the tape and put the cover back on. It would not stretch...or I couldn't get it to stretch. I was very relieved to see that is was a common problem in 2002 SC's. Someone said on one of the forwarded blogs that no one would notice "but you." I suspect that is right...so, eventually, I will take it to an upholstery guy and pay the money. I post some pictures...you can see at the beginning to before....these are after.
