    Default seat repair?

    Any good ideas on fixing some rips and tears on a seat? I want to keep it from ripping more and prevent water from getting in. The best thought I have so far is some good old duct tape!

    I used a patch kit for fixing fishing waders to patch a hole I burnt into my seat with my leaddog light like an idiot. The patch is waterproof and it has stayed in place for 2 seasons going on a third. The patch is only bout 2 or 3 inches round though.

    Depends on the brand. Polaris you can just buy a new seatcover and put it on.

    Marita sea and ski is selling "old stock" seat covers right now for a very reasonable price.

    I have and know others who have taken a piece of ice and water shield AKA *****athane and heated it up with a torch so it adheres to the seat. Best to do pretty much the whole seat rather than a small section. Looks a little better than duck tape as it is black but not much better. But keeps your butt dry and seat from turning to a block of ice if the foam gets wet

    Default seat cover

    i was at go pro the other day and asked them for recovering seat options and they told me they could recover a seat for about 150 bucks or you can take it down to fine line interiors and he will recover seats with a waterproof non slip cover for not much more than that.
