Coconix Leather and Vinyl Repair Kit

Rubbing Alcohol

Cotton balls or cotton wadding (if padding is missing)

Scissors or utility knife (if necessary)

Plastic Wrap (for adding texture)

Step 1

Preparing the Damaged Area

  • Carefully trim any excess threads, jagged bits, or burn marks from the crack on your vinyl car door panel.
  • Cut off any charred material if necessary.

Step 2

Cleaning the Area

  • Clean the area around the crack on your vinyl car door panel with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab.
  • Make sure to test it on a hidden area first. If alcohol is harsh for your material, you may use warm, soapy water or your usual leather or vinyl cleaner.

Step 3

Mixing the Repair Compound

  • If your repair requires a custom color, refer to the Color Mixing Guide in the kit to match the color and prepare the mixture using the empty mixing jar provided.

Step 4

Applying the Repair Compound

  • Apply the repair compound to the crack on your vinyl car door panel.
  • Start by applying it under and along the edges and work from the outside toward the center.
  • Use the spatula for larger applications and the brush for surface applications and detail touch-ups.

Step 5

Drying and Additional Layers

  • Allow several hours for the repair compound to dry until it is no longer sticky to the touch on your vinyl car door panel.
  • Once dry, apply additional layers until the repaired area is level with the rest of the area.

Step 6

Adding Texture

  • Once the repair compound is semi-dry, tear off a slightly larger piece of plastic wrap.
  • Press it against the semi-dry final layer of the repair compound.
  • When you lift your hand off, the area will be slightly textured.
  • Repeat this process until you've achieved the desired texture. Adding texture will help the repaired section to blend with the rest of the vinyl.

Step 7

Finishing Touches

  • After the repair compound has dried, use a cotton pad or cotton swab and rubbing alcohol to buff out the edges of the repair on your vinyl car door panel.

Step 8


  • Avoid exposing the repaired area to extreme temperatures or direct sunlight for long periods of time.
  • Clean the repaired area with a damp cloth or mild soap and water regularly to remove dust and dirt.
  • Keep an eye on the repaired area and reapply the repair compound if necessary.
  • Use UV protectant sprays or car covers to protect your car's interior from harmful UV rays that can cause the vinyl to crack or fade over time.
  • Consider keeping the Coconix Leather and Vinyl Repair Kit in your car's trunk or glove box for quick touch-ups or emergency repairs.
