Looking for some recommendations as to seat repair. My neighbor’s cat got up under the cover and scratched up the seat. It’s not terrible, but they are willing to cover the cost and I’m not trying to take advantage of that.
Other than replacing the seat or reupholstering, are there any suggestions?[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Beware. Don't do what Mr Bob did - leave a bottle of water on the seat in the spring morning sun - he was altered when he caught sight of a rising wisp of smoke - the water acted as a magnifying glass and burnt a spot into the seat vinyl, just where he sits. Caught it before it all went up in flame, or burnt all the way through.

Give it a wipe down with vinyl conditioner and go for a long ride. A bit of saddle time should see most of the marks disappear.
The vinyl conditioner worked after two applications and long rides. It’s like alchemy.
Forgot to reply to this a while back, so just in case anyone has this problem.
