Re: 5518 bad sound
"So, do you coat the whole seat w/ plasti-dip, or just the foamed area? Nice job BTW."
Thanks. Plastidip only on the seam. I foamed only the area where the crack was to fill the void. Then, I trimmed the foam back a bit with a razor so there was a slight channel in the foam, then brushed several thin layers of the Plastidip on and out from about .5" successively out to about 2" on either side of the seam with each thin coat (a bit like patching fiberglass on a boat, how I layered it). Then, when the last thin layer was dry I filled the concave area with Plastidip (I took the seat off), and once that dried, brushed on a couple more thin layers and feathered them out maybe 2.5" from the seam.
It's holding up and bonded with the seat's plastic nicely, no separation. I've done this on old motorcycle seats - I love older Honda motorcycles - so I figured it would work on the tractor seat too. So far, it does.
