Such a timely post! Thanks.
Have a seat to repair myself. Anyone ever try the vinyl repair kits at auto suppliers?
I just watched a video from one manufacturer on youtube. Looked easy enough.
I was thinking of trying the repair. The one I am going to try and repair has the WH logo embossed
otherwise I wouldn't try. Here's the video:
I've picked up numerous seats at junk yards, great deals. Paid $5 for some very nice
high back, steel pan seats.
After cleaning up the junk yard finds, black gloss spray paint worked great!
I took a peek-a-boo at a Permatex® vinyl repair kit at the auto supply yesterday, $18.00.
The kit came with the small soldering included. I am waiting for warmer spring weather and working
on the '90 520-8 Wheel Horse before I need the seat. But, I am leaning towards trying the Permatex® repair kit. I would replace the seat with a new one but, damage to the stock WH embossed seat is minimal.
