so i looked for hours and googled but i didn't come across a similar solution. my driver seat is worn/ faded its not torn or anything but its very noticeable. its not really in my budget right now to buy a new seat so i was thinking of using this vinyl&fabric spray paint to paint them. i the spray-paint to paint the inserts on the door handle and they came out alright. what do you guys suggest?

Haha yea, I haven't seen any other seat that was that faded.
Its a bigger project, but the results are worth it.

wow, thats some serious wearing.

I had something similar, but maybe 2 inches long, 1/4inch wide, and right by the seam. It was worn down, from the seam in my jeans.

I ended up buying replica Brides and sold the oem seats.

so i ended up using the vinyl&fabric paint on the seats i think the results look better then before, not perfect but enough for the time/money invested. i will say this if you are planning on using it since i used a good amount the seat feel scratchy i might use a thick brush on them to see if i can make them softer and come back with the results.
