Haha, I just took my seat

Haha, I just took my seat covers off is why there's an issue. I hate that ****. I figure I'll hit it with black gaffers tape. Worth that will happen is the seat cover goes back on and all else is equal.

How much would a shop charge to do it?

A shop will cost a lot more than a new seat from the junkyard.

Barcolounger

I remember that my Step-Dad ripped his beloved BarcoLounger leather recliner during a move. This was the late 80's, but they made this stuff that's basically a piece of leather of vinyl (that comes in various colors that's not even close to your particular application). Anyways, it comes with a super-glue-like adhesive to schtick to the tear and it hardens and seals the deal. It keeps the rip from spreading and you've repaired it yourself. Win-Win sitcheation.

Well, since that was the late 80's, maybe the technology has improved. I'd end up going to a hobby supply store -- I know... pass all of the fake flowers and scrapbook crap and head for the furniture repair section. That's my idea...

Ripped seats...... ah yes,

Ripped seats...... ah yes, thanks for the memories.

I have a wonderful hunting dog, a hyper German Shorthaired Pointer. He chewed the seats in my brand new Toyota Matrix. I took it to the dealer, who informed me that a new seat would cost like $2000! I bought a $150 slip cover instead.

I still have the dog. When he eats the wrong food, he gives me free gas!

I bought a set of seats for my 88 Civic from some guy on H-T for $25. They didn't fit at all, but I did strip the upholstery off (PITA) and reupholster my frames. The finished product is actually very nice.
