Ok, so I keep my old car, a 2007 Chevy Malibu, as a daily driver to and from the office or when I take longish road trips. Long story short, I had a couple buddies in the car last night and one of them was smoking. I don't care too much about it since its an old car, but the dumbass was drunk and his cig ended up burning a hole in the back seat. Its between the size of a dime or nickel in diameter. Aside from having the seat completely reupholstered, which I really don't want to do, any of you know of a fix other than buying seat covers?

Yeah, I'm thinking if it were leather or vinyl it'd actually be easier to fix.

Not much help, but I ripped the seat of my old car to shreds.  It was leather though.  But a local upholstery guy replaced the entire section for like 50 bucks and you couldnt tell

Take the fabric off. Patch from the underside with a similar color. Best u can expect.

You could always tell a dope smoker by the little holes in the seat.

Yeah, I'd be more pissed if it were in my nice car. Like I said I still keep this one around for road trips and whatnot. Its an 07 malibu with 101,000 miles on it. I was kicking around the idea of selling it soon, not for much but I don't want their to be a nickel sized hole in the back seat. I'm  probably going to use some clippers and trim off the burned edges of the hole and try to patch with some fabric from the underside. If that doesn't work, I may just go to a junk yard up here and try to buy a whole new damn back seat. Provided they have the right color, there's a place up here that sells them for like $50..and they're not that hard to take out/install.

That's about what I paid that guy to recover the drivers seat of one of our old Chevy trucks. Had to take the seat out myself.

1st owner of my car was a weed smoker. Theres two small burn marks in a utility tray in the center console where you could tell he was propping up his joint. Came from Miami and car was a repo. So we joke it was a dealers car and he got busted
