    Default burn hole fix

    It is a relatively easy fix but the supplies can be costly for a one time use. You need Semtek spray adhesive a flocking spayer and color matched flocking material. All of which are available through carquest and will cost about $60. Just tape off the hole and spray the adhesive on the hole. Fill the hole only to the foam leaving area to come back to level with fabric. remove initial tape and tape off a slightly larger area than the hole to blend flocking into fabric. spray adhesive and flock using flock sprayer. without the flock sprayer it will be very uneven. only spray enough flock to cover one layer. you may have to repeat the steps a few times to cover the hole and blend into fabric. If your seats are textured or have a weave, the repair will stand out. A pro auto interior specialist should charge about $75 to fix the hole which may be the best bet. good luck

    Wow! Thats amazing! I have never even thought of doing that. I havn't really done much interior work on anything, always just the exterior and the engine. But thats great to know in the future! I have used flocking to put on the heads of my goose decoys because it keeps the glare down and doesn't scare the birds. I never knew you can use it to fix the seat. Doesn't work on leather though, so I guess I am out of luck there. I don't have any burns thankfully! I guess you learn something new everyday!
