Default Cable TV Ad - Vinyl & Leather Repair Kit

.

Every so often while I'm surfing the cable channels I have seen an ad for a vinyl and leather repair kit. Anybody have any experience with the kit? I was wondering if it could be used to repair cracks in dashboards? JCWhitney also has some repair kits, which are probably very similar.

I'm curious about that too, my front seat has a rip in it and I saw a kit in Wal-mart

I have a kit similar to those kits...except I haven't used it yet, have a little rip in the dash, plan to fix it with the stuff, someday...other things need to be done first.

Hello Psyco and Brando,

I imagine that the kits might work on a dash (e.g., to repair cracks), but not sure about seats where there will be stress. I'm wondering about success with a dash application in that it receives a lot of heat and I'm just wondering if the repair material will withstand the heat. I have about three cracks in my dash ('72 -98) that I would like to cover-up (i.e., fill in). Then trying to match the color might be a challenge. My dash is a very dark brown/green hue.

Yes...that's one of the things that kind of puzzles me is trying to get the color matched perfectly. As for the standing up to heat, not really too sure, you have to heat it to cure it, so I am thinking that it should stand up to heat fairly well. As for doing seats, not sure if that would work out too well, best to just get em recovered, but I think there is a different special kit for seats...

I'm hoping that mixing their green with some black and maybe a drop of brown will get me close to my dash's color, which is a very dark olive.

I forgot about that! U R correct...it should work on dashes.

Bad seats are fortunately not one of my issues. The seats in my car were covered from the day my father brought the car home in 1972. I removed the seat covers recently and found the original seat coverings in perfect shape.
