Consumer Reports (my bible) rates Walmart-brand Sport SPF 50 at #2; clearly the best deal out there. There's no need to spend more $$$, although you can.

Yep. You can also argue that "I've not worn seatbelt for years, never had a problem".

I would patch it with something. The quick and dirty way would be to use white MarineTex. Since it's not in a very visible area looks aren't that important.
