I am sure we all have at least one seat that the vinyl cover is starting to crack, What if anything can be done to fix vinyl seat covers? What works; what doesn't. Is there anything that can prolong the inevitable replacement?

 

Can this be fixed? Or at least patched to keep water out?

I was thinking the patch would have to remain flexible, RTV or some kind of silicon? In grey? Hopeless cause?

 

What are your thoughts?
