Well, I finally managed to get my fastback down at school with me and not too long after, one of my friends managed to hurt her(wheel house chrome is banged up and a chip in the paint, luckily no dent). In the process the car cover was ripped (it is a Wolfe out of the Summit catalog). Is there any inexpensive way to fix the rip while still maintaining the integrity of the waterproofing?

Thanks

If you go to an upholstery shop they can sew or patch it for you. That's what we did to ours and it came out great.

Now I'm accepting opinions of what I should do with my friend. I'm thinking castration, but maybe that's too harsh, just the bill and lay the guilt on real thick right.
