Default door panel repair

Hey gang, Does anyone have any ideas how I can repair the vinyl on the lower part of my door panel?? As unfortunate as it is my Bonnie is my daily driver, and with my job I have to wear work boots. Point is, getting in and out of my car I have rather inadvertenly tore the door panel in a couple spots.

It'* noticeable and I don't like it. So if anyone'* got ideas shout em out to me.


Tim

I'm 99% sure thet WalMart still sells the vynil repair kits. Good for little nicks and small tears. You may not get an exact color/pattern match, but it shouldn't be overly noticeable (if used right)

You mix up a little of the "color matched" goo, apply it to the dmaged area, lay the pattern matcher over it, and heat it with an iron.

I should be swinging by WallyWorld on my way home tonight (need ink for my printer). I'll see if they stock it here. If so, they stock it everywhere
