Title: Baked Vinyl
Post by: John B. on May 27, 2011, 06:03:28 PM
Bob; the top of my back passenger seat, in  my 66' Newport is heat cooked. No cracks or splits but "dried out" would be the best description. Any suggestions for preserving it? Thanks, John.

I think we had this conversation just a few weeks ago, there is absolutely no way to restore the flexibility to existing plastics and vinyl once it has hardened. Someone invent something like that and they would be a gazillionaire overnight.

It works for the wife, works on leather if it isn't cracked, but plastics are a totally different story. You can slow down the damage but you can't reverse it.
