Hey guys, I just put in some new Cerullo F3 seats and they rub really bad on the outside seat belt bolt. I flipped the hardware around so the threads would not be against the vinyl but after I finally got the seat to latch and sat in it I discovered both the drivers and passenger seats had a brand spankin new hole in them from the bolt head. I now will replace the bolts with either low profile rounded heads or flat allen bolts but I need to get these holes fixed. Who knows of a good upholstery shop that can patch the vinyl in the OC area?

Vinyl Patches: a Quick Fix
For an old car you don't want to invest too much in, a patch is an easy way to repair the vinyl car seats. Just find any piece of vinyl that matches the color of your seats and that's big enough to cover the hole or tear. Trim away any uneven edges around the damaged site. Carefully slide the patch into the hole, using tweezers if needed. You can't simply lay the patch on top because it won't have enough flex when someone sits on it. Next, lift up the edge of the original vinyl upholstery and apply a thin layer of vinyl adhesive to both the seat's upholstery and the patch. Finally, press together the areas where you applied the adhesive, taking care not to push them apart. Let the patch dry for 24 hours away from direct sunlight.
