Upholstery repair advice?

Now that she's approaching 20 years old, she's starting to show her age.

Any tips or suggestions on repairing any of these signs of wear?

Thanks!

Consider yourself lucky that you made it to 20. Had to replace mine at 10.

You can sew the rips on the seams.. used a curved needs... what I did no my interior on the seams is got some frosted vinyl to buy some time....

http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...ad.php?t=56818

you can the frosted vinyl at a vinyl shop - I am sure they would sell you some.... or you can order a roll from a place like signsplusbanners.com.

I used "Totally Amazing Cleaner" 2 times to clean - rinsed... let dry over night then wiped down 50% alcohol - Cut the vinyl into strips - apply with a blow dryer. apply to seam and work your way out from the seem.

The corner rip you can fill with vinyl repair then cover with vinyl tape.

Not sure how bad your is but I sent my 89 PS190 to Viper Customs and in my opinion it's as good as new. Good luck to you.

I second that - it was cheaper for me to ship my boat to and from Viper (from Cincy) than to have it done locally. AND I'm conviced I got better work as a result.

Thanks for the tips. I don't need the full redo just yet so these suggestions will buy me a little more time.
