Door card cracking

You know that spot you rest your elbow on the door card behind the window switches etc ?
The elbow impact point is now splitting the covering vinyl. Sort of 2 inches square area.

Was thinking of getting some self adhisive fabric patch to put over it in matching grey.

Anyone else having this issuie ?

Re: Door card cracking

I do... and I think it is related to heat. My WJ spent most of its life in Florida. I did not notice it in the WJs form the midwest that I drove.

Re: Door card cracking

I have been using Maguire's Leather treatment or Ice interior protectant. I also like 303 but I am out of it.

Re: Door card cracking

I'll have to keep an eye on mine then. 303 is good stuff. I use Meguiars Interior, and will wipe it down with Leatherique every once in awhile, and mine still look like new, and flex without any signs of wanting to crack.

Re: Door card cracking

Well it dont usually get that hot in England !
The rest of the Interior is very good (although the leather couuld use a good clean and feed)
Must just be the prevoius owners was a big "leaner" on his elbow and split it. Im going to see if I can find some grey velour, or Alcantra type material. I think there is a car trimmers near me so will check them out.Do matching patches on both door cars to blend it in.

Stay tuned..................
