Good Questions: Should I Repair or Reupholster My Vinyl Chair?

Dearest AT, I found this task chair at a local car shop. I was walking my son when lo and behold...there it was, looking greasy and unloved...

...Ever since I saw it (in red) on AT, I've wanted one, so I went in to see if the owner would sell it to me. He said, "No, it's an old chair, honey. Just bring me a replacement chair and it's yours." Today, I pushed it, along with my son's stroller, 10 Philadelphia blocks home:) Yay! It's in very good condition, except for a few loose screws and torn vinyl. My question is, does anyone have any experience repairing torn vinyl? What did you use? Is it better and cheaper to just reupholster the whole thing?

Thank you!

Brenda
