Which gives the best results for sorting my old crema seats out.The drivers seat is a bit wrinkly and tired looking,thought i`d give it a bit of a pampering.

There are that many products out there,i thought i`d ask on here first..:)

I`m kinda leaning towards liquid leather at the moment,but am open to advice.

Cheers

Are you wanting to just clean and condition them or are you after recolouring them??

Not sure Steve,first time i`ve ever done it.I would like to get the wrinkles on the side bolster sorted.Or would that involve doing the whole seat,as i said,i have no knowledge on the matter and will listen gratefully to all opinions and advice.

Ade,

These people did my seats for me and are in Warrington just off the M6:

http://www.leathercare-renovations.co.uk/index.htm

I have also used liquid leather.

My seats have red stitching with red cloth inserts so required masking. I let them do it for me and I am pleased with the results.

TBH though, using the liquid leather isn't difficult (spray) but I found it needed a little practise to get the coverage right.

The above website also has some explanation for technique.

steves right use these companys for diy kits,but be warned you can get good results as long as you know what your doing or you can make a pigs ear of it,
keyword is preperation if in any doubt let a pro do it,but if you do do it your self especially with or any light colour its quite a bit more difficult.good luck :thumbsup:
