Permatex Pro Style Vinyl and Leather Repair Kit

I'm sure we all have this problem with out Leather Accord seats.

I purchased this kit for about $15



Here is the before


and after


Overall I give it a B

+ It does a good job smoothing out the cracked plastic
+ Pretty easy
+ Stops the spread of the crack ( and no more itchy left leg)
- Takes 4 hours for glue to dry
- Color match not that great
- works best on flat surfaces ( hard/impossible on concave surfaces)

^^ where did you get it replaced at? You might have been able to find an Accord seat for less than that I'd imagine.

i went to a shop in sac thats known for their leather work. its kind of in the ghetto but they have awesome work and they service all the dealerships including the high end ones. i had two rips and my other seats are very mint. i had a rip on the usual driver spot and on the side bolster where the airbag is and on the very opposite side bolster there was a cheap cut. so they replaced all that with new leather and stitched it all up. the other isn't 100% perfect but you wouldnt know unless i pointed it out. besides new leather just can't looked like 9 year old aged leather heheheheh
