Leather repair??

Finally starting to get a rip in my expo leather seats.

Curious if there's an easy fix (that a professional can do obviously) or not.

If not, i'm going to start my hunt for some clean stock seats, or leather sport trac seats. Need to get this baby clean enough to sell!

If it's similar like a jacket they remove the damaged section and just restitch the original seam.

I'd leave it, it's a nice battle scar.....or you can put some duct tape on it.

x2 and the fact that they are very hard to get unless you have a king ranch or know some good friends. Most of the time in order to order some replacements/new ones/etc you have to have a vin number for a vehicle that came with them and even if you get past all that, im sure they will not be cheap. If you do happen to get ahold of a worn set for a good price, like I said in order to get the replacement leather for them I think you will still need a proper VIN.

Also how come your selling?

don't even bother with a leather repair. just take it to a shop and have them replace the pieces that need to be done. will probably run $100-200.
