Unhappy cigarette burn hole

Unfortunately I got a burn hole in the drivers seat of my roadmaster sedan. It is red leather and the hole is very small at most a quarter of an inch in size. Of all the products out there for repairing leather is there one that would be best for something like this?.If it would help I can post a pic.

Best you'll find is a "band-aid"... The only real repair option is to replace the panel.

Ask some car lots/dealers who they use for interior repairs. They might be able to help.

If not very big,one can try putting some type of glue sealant inside the hole. Then cover with a piece of "painter's tape",gently massage flush,and let dry. Gently peal off the tape later,and you should have a decent surface to apply some paint/dye to..

you can try one of those repair kits

or go to a upholstery shop and have them do it with a similar method or sew in a new panel.

I had a new seat back shoulder leather piece put in by a shop for $200. Dropped off the seat and picked it up later that day. They also put new seat bottom foam in both front seats for that $ so fixing the hole itself is likely around a $100 at a shop
