How to repair small tears in seat cover???
Posted March 18, 2002 - 09:13 AM
BTW, I've still got the stock seat/cover and the tear is fairly small, maybe half-inch or so long. About the size of the branches from the bush I had to sail ole blue into yesterday, but that's an entirely seperate topic...
Anyone have suggestions on RTV, silicon, krazy glue, bubble gum (just kidding)????
Thanks to all.

Anyway, cool, I figured the RTV approach still survives and I will be looking around for that patch stuff at the stores, I seem to remember seeing that stuff on the shelf somewhere recently, laughing at the folks who used that crap... well, I've always been able to laugh at myself anyway, now I'm not only a critic of infomercial products.... I'm a customer!! DOH!!!

As opposed to a "dry ice cube"? HA HA
Just pulling your chain!

phone around contract vinyl flooring firms
and ask for coldweld :- it costs about £14 per tube uk.

Well to make a short story (as if) out of this, and I could describe pages worth at this point, I had to take 3 shots at getting back up one of the slopes I had come down, the final get off came as a result of sliding backwards with both wheels locked and picking up speed, something I'm not accustomed too.
Well to thwart my backward freefall of death, I had to throw her into a bush while making what had to be the most awkward looking get off I've ever managed. I aimed for the "trail", she got the bushes. This "dirt" that holds these hills in place is nothing more that crusty moon dust and loose rocks. The "major trail" I descended was quite steep in places with almost nowhere to turn around, much less get a run at these sippery slopes. Thus, left with 1st gear starts at a short right/left switchback takeoff, needless to say, I wasn't getting the job done. In my younger years I suppose, maybe I'd of been fine, but reality is what it is...
Anyhow, I was lucky to have pitched the WR where I did as I managed to walk and clutch up the last 30 or so feet. And after that experience I blasted whatever was left with 2nd or 3rd abandon as if I was climbing the Widowmaker. No freakin way I was gettin off again!!! I got out of there finally and the rest is history so to speak.
Thus, in a long winded way, thats the answer to the question is, it was either the seat cover or the cliffs.
Obviously we can now tell which I wound up with.
