    2012 GTX S 155 seat repair ?

    any of you guys had any luck repairing these new seats ? vinyl doesn't seem to be as thick as the older seats. I was thinking of stitching it up and then glue a piece of vinyl on top not sure were i would find a color matched patch. Any of you used 3M repair kit, any good ?

    From what I've read it's really difficult to get a long lasting repair. Between the constant movement and the material characteristics of the vinyl, most adhesive based repairs will eventually fail. Having said that, I've had mixed success fixing two small marks on side panels in a boat using this product available at MEC. http://www.mec.ca/product/5016-283/t...vinyl%2Brepair

    They've been in place for 2 years, one is starting to curl at the edges.

    not what i wanted to hear the seat it's in brand new condition other than the rip which was caused by life jacket buckle so I’m trying to avoid re-upholstering the whole seat.
