I mount them with the split, that's the way the were in real life. Plus I find it easier to mount with the split than to try to repair them..

Just notch the ear liner to match the notch in the ear.

I try to fix the real big tears by eithor sewing or glueing them. If it's just a small notch in the ear though, I leave it and make sure to put it in line when I card them for drying.


Well I say Leave It

i would have to say that I would leave it cuz it would look better that way I have onlya a coupe of mounts yet I would have to say that is the way I would do it but by all means do it your own way!
