    Help! My first small rip in Alcantara! Repair?

    So my interior has been in great shape, got the Coby tri-stitch wheel, shift boot, e-brake boot.

    Now I have a rip in the seat.... and need help. The rip is U-shaped, and about the size of a penny... See picture.

    What would be the best way for repair?

    Ah welcome to the club. It'll only get worse from here. That bolster has been worn down over the years and I can even see in the pic that it is thinned across a large area.

    There's some good discussion here on your repair options:

    I've elected to leave it for now as I don't care that much. The seat is still comfortable and grippy and I'm the only one who drives it so whatever.

    Howdy, ejp2fast. I read your recent comments on Bring a Trailer. I don’t have ideas about this repair, maybe you can check with a car upholstery shop.
