I have a split in my arm rest it is foam inside, vinyl outside I was hoping to repair it and paint it with some vinyl paint the filler has to be flexable does anyone know the best type of filler to use ?
There is a kit that put a patch under the split then a filler goes on top then, theres a mold that goes on top which you heat with an iron and that imprints the pattern into the filler ,saw this on wheeler dealers,it was used by an upholsterer try hotrodtrimmer on here .
I have/had one of the repair kits with liquid 'vinyl' and one thing I found was that it shrank and sunk a lot in the hole. I think you will have to remove the cover and, as Paul said, stick a patch underneath to support the repair and to stop it pulling apart further.
