Re: Help! Vynl seat is cracking! (NRM8573)

As far as preventing new cracks, get some armor-all and soak the hell out of the seat. Get a nice good coat on the vinyl, then let it sit, dont let anyone sit in the seat for at least a day, then coat it again. Thatll moisten it up and help protect against the sun. AS far as fixing the rips already there, I dunno, but let me know what you find out, cause Ive got a few myself.

Is armor all really that bad? Ive been using it since last summer, not soaking my seats, but using those wipes.

Re: Help! Vynl seat is cracking! (MenardVolvo)

no, its not THAT bad, i just really dislike it after it made my dash sticky and wierd. now all i use is mothers, but if i could afford vinylex id use it. the wipes are much better then the spray, and the leather wipes work quite well, especially on perferated (sp?) leather, like on jaguar x-type sports, cadillac escalades, nissan 350Z's...... well pretty much anything my parents will buy.<p>i will say this, soaking anything in armor all is bad for YOU, not the seats. it makes them ALOT more slick,erego you slam on the brakes and if you arent wearing a seatbelt you will hit the steering wheel. <p>as for repairing cracks that are already present, i believe they have things for this similar to glipstik for leather. id even try glipstik on vinyl.
