Liquid Stitch - available from JC Whitney.

More.. You can repair a seam split by just letting it glue them together, but will not
give ultimate strength.  Better is to use a piece of leather cut to cover the split or
hole.  I repaired a seat bolster with a chunk missing - used some spray foam like
Greatstuff and layed piece of leather over with liquid stitch around to hold it down.
Had to cut off excess great stuff, but repair was pretty good and will last as long as
the rest of the seat.

Use your imagination and creativity.

hi all,

i'm looking for a relatively simple fix-it for the cracked driver's seat in my 1991 audi
200q20v. i'm still searching for either a good replacement driver's seat (black sport
seat) or any black audi leather seat from a 100 or 200 to get the hide from (can be from
the seat back as well).

but in the meantime, i'd like to temporarily fix it. are any of those leather
glue/repair things worth a damn? i'm even thinking crazy glue leather adhesive for now.
i just want to stop the crack form gettting worse.
