Interior A-pillar upholstery repair


Jul 3, 2019
I recently had the windows tinted on my new model 3 and noticed this small tear on the top of the drivers side interior A-pillar, unfortunately on the side of the headliner vs the a-pillar itself.

The obvious answer would be to go back to the shop and complain however I can’t convince myself 100% that it was not there before going in and so would prefer to just fix it myself. Does anyone have any suggestions on repair?

I have found a Permatex fabric repair kit that seems to be a sufficient band-aid. Does anyone have experience trying this or think this is something that an auto upholstery shop may have a better solution? Any insight is appreciated!
