Thanks for all the replies. Five months and and there is no sign of the repair wearing away. I was worried about that as it is right on the seat side that gets rubbed no matter how hard you try not to getting in and out of the car.

Now ten months on and the gear shift has lost its shine. The seat still looks as it did the day I did the repair.

nice job..

the more I see these seat restore diy's the more simple it seems

i think for almost any size tear you could use patches they fix clothes with. Glue the patch to where to whole is at, compond, sand continue.

I might start restoring some of my friends cars. the hardest part seems to be matching the color.

good job though

A little update to say the repair is still holding out and shows no signs of deterioration.

Is the material used oil based or water based?

There are two competing schools of thought on this.

I think that considering you got that on Ebay, the end result turned out pretty good. Did you buy it from a specific Ebay store or just a random person? Used 2003 Volkswagen GTI Portland Oregon

I think it is oil based and I have a link to The Scratch Doctor in post #29, who ships world wide.

Thanks for the recent thanks and yes, the repair still looks exactly the same as it does in the original photos. I have not had to do any retouching.
