    My friend in the back seat of my truck was smoking a hand rolled cig. and the ember flew right out of it, landed on the carpet, and burned a mini hole. What the hell. Is there anything I can do it fill the burn hole...? P.s. never trust anyone in the back seat with fire.

    Was it just the floor mat? If not, I'm not really sure there's much you can do about it.

    If there is anyway you can remember the name lemme know, ive tried one product, it took most of it out but there is still a little black in it. Its really not that deep, but my truck is immaculate inside so this really kind of bugs me.

    My old man had this Dupont upholstery cleaner that worked great! I'll look up what it was specifically. I'd try something like a soft brush, something you'd clean a bathroom with to get some of the black out. Worst case you could trim a little off the top of the carpet to cut off the burned portion.

    there was an episode on Trucks where they fixed cig holes in the upholstery by shaving carpet from areas that are unseen like under the seat or back of seat etc... then simply glued it to the burn spots by applying a thin coat of adhesive, and laying the shaved upholstery on it. It looked pretty good IMO. Woudlnt hurt to try.

    I saw something about repairing cig burns in seats on a tv show and tried it on my old explorer and it worked well to at least conceal the hole. If you find an obscure area (like maybe under the seat) use a razorblade to scrape a little bit of carpet "fuzz" from the carpet (dont cut a hole just get a mess of lint). Then clean out the hole a little with the razor blade to remove any black burn marks. fill with a little clear silicone. Allow the silicone to dry a little and then and matte in the carpet fuzz. Not a perfect fix but it will make it look a lot better.

    None yet! It's new!
    Get yourself a circular leather punch. It will cut a clean hole in the carpet. Remove the burn. Do the same thing under your passenger seat, but save the round cut-out from the punch. It will fit the burn hole perfectly. You can back the carpet with a piece of duct tape or whatever, and glue the new piece in the hole. Fixed. Can't tell it ever happened.

    What he said ^^^you might be able to find those heat activated adhesive packages at home depot in the flooring section. Thats how carpet is typically patched. Make sure you find the direction of the nap (if any) and make sure the direction of the nap on the new piece of capet matches.

    thats a good idea, i would just do this, best option other than getting a whole new carpet.

    ++++1 this is probably the best way for a DYIer to geter done. I would just clarify by adding to cut fibers from the carpet not a piece of carpet.

    Could you cover the burn with a mat? I mean like one of the mats that goes all the way across in the back floor?

    I had this done professionally once many moons ago. You could not find the burn hole if you looked for it.
