I have a 2006 Ford Lariet with the fake leather seats. In one area the seat is wearing (about 6 x 6 area). What I want to know is if any one has had luck with any manufacture of vinyl repair or will eternabond roof tape work? The problem is on the driver side front area left of the seat, so it is not a flat area, but curved.

Just do like every other person who is too cheap or lazy to actually repair their worn out drivers seat....
Just put some duct tape on it. Bonus points of you find matching color duct tape! Lol.

I mean, why spend $100 to get a brand new matching seat bottom cover that will keep your presumably nice looking rig from looking like something out of the pick n pull lot?

I think the Eternabond would hold/last longer than duct tape!

The seat being wore out, says that truck has had a lot of use/abuse! I'd just get a new SuperDuty and be done with it. The good news...if not using cash to avoid payments, at least the interest is at a very low rate.

If you don't want to patch it ... Take it to an auto upholstery shop and have seat repaired ...

OR, as above post, buy seat covers. Remember, if you have heated seats, seat cover are not such a good idea according to MFGRs.

I am going to restate what I need. Has anyone ever patched a area on their truck seat that was worn? If so with what? Has anyone ever used Eternabond for this repair, and if so are the results acceptable. I am NOT interested in covers or purchasing another truck.

I’m sure someone has, but do you really need advice here?
Put some tape on it. If it doesn’t last, put different tape on it.

OK, Purchase another seat.

I have never heard anyone use eternabond tape on a vehicle seat. NO one has ever dreamt up that idea before.
I can't imagine ever using eternabond tape on a truck seat.

I guess you will be the first to try it, so just go for it and report the results.
Ready,
GO!!!!!!!
