a fix under 20 bucks please, im gonna drive the car for years until i sell it so im not looking to buy 200-300 dollar custom seat covers. I was thinking more along the lines of a glop of glue and a small piece of foam to conceal the nasty hole....just to make it less obvious. SO how can i make it LESS OBVIOUS!?! jerry rigging is acceptable

Your friend should pay for a new seat. I'm assuming he didn't offer, so you can try one of these cheap
upholstery repair kits upholstery repair kits
, they do ok for a patch job.

I think iam going to perform surgery and from under the seat "graft" a new piece of seat. Won't be perfect by any means, but won't look as awful. Do you know exactly how that repair kit works? There's no way iam getting money out of this cat either. Ill let you guys know what i do to conceal it for future burn victims.

Idk if it works but the kit visix provided is less than 10 bucks. I would make ## friend pay for it. That's less than the price of two packages of smokes.

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

The kit is simple. You get a bunch of colors and mix them together to try to match your fabric. Then you use some adhesive to fill the hole with the color you made. It's easy to do, there are instructions in the package. The hardest part is matching your color.

I know a few people who have used these types of repair kits with mixed results.

My poor leather seats are starting to show signs of wear. Any good leather repair kits out there or am I just going to have to live with the scratches?

This happened in my friends truck, he just took some thread and sewed it together and then put a little like clear adherence on it to make sure it stayed together.

When i used to have leather seats I would use Mcguires Leather Wipes. It works our some of the creases and lessens the deep ones and it smells good.
