        I don’t know if it is any good, or not, but google liquid vinyl repair kit.

          Hey, now that I think of it, I did use one of those 'vinyl repair kits' on the folding seats to my 14' skiff. It not only worked well, holes the size of BBs, but I matched it perfectly!

          On the bottom of the seat there was some 'excess' material with the surface impression or dimples of the vinyl material on it. So I cut off a 1/2" square piece, cleaned it, and then sprayed it with Pam cooking spray (as a mold release) on the surface side. Once I glued up the repair spot, I turned that piece upside-down over the hole - like a reverse mold - and let it cure a good couple days.

          PRESTO ... when I removed the piece I had a perfect repair and surface match!

            Lucky you, I tried it once a lot of years ago on a car seat with less the impressive results LOL
