    Source for seat vinyl - for making patches
from StevieP

Rated:

 My 1999 Triton is starting to show its age. A couple of the seats have tears on seams, or right in the vinyl.


I'm budgetarily constrained from buying new seats, or having these properly re-covered. I'd like to find some swatches of the vinyl material used, and make some stick-on patches that'll tide me over until I can do it right.


The original Triton seat color was called "welk" (whelk?), which is a medium dark gray color. It won't be an exact match anymore, as the original seats have faded a bit, but it'll still be close.


Can anyone recommend a source for a square yard or so of the vinyl material? That'd last me through my current set of patches, with plenty leftover.


Assuming I can find the vinyl, what might anyone suggest to use as an adhesive to apply the patches?


Thanks.

They're
ng to send me a half-yard (18" x 54" - which is as wide as the roll) of the material.


They discontinued the "whelk" color (Triton's name for it. Their name was 'harbor gray'), and are sending me the closest thing, which is described as 'gunmetal'


She only charged me $9 for the piece of vinyl, plus reasonable shipping.


I know enough to cut patches into round or oval shapes so the corners don't peel up.


Can anyone suggest a good (STRONG!)waterproof, flexible adhesive that won't attack the vinyl?


   Maybe this would do the trick? from Crowbar  6/19/2012 5:22:48 PM
 No personal experience with it, just found it on a Google search for ya...
