    Any suggestions/cleaning/restoring methods are appreciated

    Found a full option set of sport seats local to me to for only 100$ so I might buy those & swap the alcantara skins over so I can have full heated/power/memory/adjustable bolster Alcantara seats.

    A drop of a very gentle detergent with some warm water and a Mr Clean magic eraser helped bring my Alcantara back after being in New Mexico for years. However, if the sun fade is very bad, that may not help.

    Any recommendation on what detergent? I was thinking of using OxiClean DarkProtect or Woolite for Black clothes but it might be overkill lol

    Iíll have to do this soon, The seats arenít in perfect condition with random burn holes everywhere sadly but the price was incredibly cheap & my back seat doesnít fold so it was a direct bolt on for my car lol

    Sonax upholstery cleaner works well as does Woolite Delicates. Plus, the Woolite can be picked up anywhere. Stay way from OxiClean. Fantastic on hard stains but can damage thin fabrics, ask me how I know. Doesn't require a lot of pressure or elbow grease. Just time. Lot's of patience and time. Use a clean rag to give firm scrub down and follow up with the Mr Clean eraser and some fresh warm water.

    I run a Nite Ize Steelie adjustable mount on my dash. Works for my phone and track camera. Worth the price in my book.

    My track cam is a Polaroid Cube HD so it literally just pops right onto the ball joint there.

    How did it fail?
    The only issues I had with any of mine was the crappy adhesive they use, but the first thing I do when I unbox a new one is take the old adhesive off and apply 3M. Always works like a charm.

    ive beenusing a magnetic one that slides onto the air vent fins. works great I really like it. You have to get either a phone case with metal in it, or adhere a metal plate to the back of your phone. I use the former.

    I would need something that can get glued on top of the panavise mount.

    The top part separated so now my phone can fly around in circles. Could probably drop a crap ton of glue in there.
