Default Holes In Leather Seats............

Hey I have a 2005 Bonneville with Leather seats and a friend of mine put a small hole into the passenger seat and I don't know what to do to repair it!!! HELP please. Is there a patch or anything that I can use to fix the hole before it eventually gets bigger?

you dont need to replace the whole seat. The leather part is actually a detachable cover that can be taken off and changed out.

I actually haven't done it yet. I hope to get to it tomorrow, i was running around too much today to get it going (need atleast 5 hours for the whole process or so). I also had to start sourcing a new headlight, but i digress.. I didn't have time to do it so i'll hit it up tomorrow while i'm cleaning the garage. I really need to finish this before i Move on wed, since power plugins at my apartment would be an extension cord out of my patio door.

My lil $7 kit came with everything you need to do it, even stuff to give it the same texture as the existing surfaces.

Basically you put a pad underneath the rip/hole if it'* large enough, in your case you might not need it. Throw some stuff on, mix up the colors just right with their supplied pallete, and let stuff cure etc. Once it'* all applied but still soft/wet whatever, you use the textured surfaces to apply the same texture as it originally was to blend in. Or on seats like mine, you smooth it out. The combination of the repair ontop, and the patch on bottom should leave it as strong, if not stronger then original.

I'll post a writeup with pix tomorrow night if i'm not drowning in packing my trailer.
