The seat on the 314 and 210 both have a tear
and other than this in the same normal JD
spots they are not in bad shape. I was watching a video on You-Tube and the guy was using the yellow plastic
handle dip for tools and building it up to make a repair
which honestly looked pretty good.
The color was actually a close match.
Wondered what you guys thought or will I be the guinea pig and take pics and see how it goes.

Yeah, go for it Kyle. Anxious to see how well it holds up especially in that area where the seat flexes. Good luck.

Well the Plasti-Dip finally arrived two weeks late of course
Not so overly impressed right now. Color is not as lose a match
as I would have hoped for.
Think the 314 repair may take it all
for the large crack. Wanted to fix the 210 also but think I’ll wait to try and finish that one. This does not go far .
started by wiping down with lacquer thinner to clean it. Then took
a razor blade and trimmed the edges .

So does it feel like it will flex whenever you sit on the seat Kyle, or do you think it will just separate from the vinyl edges and eventually Crack? Really not impressed with the color. Maybe the yellow will get brighter after it's fully cured.

Just an idea, but maybe after you have all the cracks and holes filled in to your satisfaction, you could paint the whole seat with vinyl yellow paint. I have not tried it personally, but I've heard of good results from other collectors. I fellow member Craig Kline has used it before. Maybe shoot him a PM and inquire about it?

That's for sure, I'd rather see the crack than the duct tape .That always makes a nasty mess.
My father has used that on his blue patio and it actually looks pretty good Troy.
See what it look like tonight, then add another coat or two.

Added another two coats to the seat tonight.
It seams like it is very pliable but color is still an issue.
It’s filling in pretty well
