if it is vynil then take it to an upolstry place and have them melt a little vynil patch in the cut and it will smooth out. You can often hide the patch even further by using a little vynil dye and evening out the finish.quote:
actually, i'm pretty sure it IS vinyl. there's a mesh backer behind it that for some reason wasn't cut, so that's good i guess. i think the easiest solution would be to pull the vinyl up exposing the back and to shmear some crazy glue on it and see what happens. thanks for the advice guys. the obstacle will be making sure my finger isn't permanently glued to my seat.
