They work good, main thing to look for is color match. Also reinforce the back of the cut. If you can get to it, a piece of pvc tape or there is a vinyl glue on the market for repairing vinyl (dont fill in the slit, just a dab on the back) The whole point here is to get something to keep the repair vinyl from sticking to the seat foam. If nothing else get a piece of saran wrap or similar under the repair (and FLAT). GET A PRACTICE PIECE OF LEATHER AND PRACTICE 1ST.
Hope this helps
Seat as very small L shaped slit about 1/4 inch or less. Bought the leathermagic.com repair kit. Going to give it a try but wondered if anyone had any advice.
