    Default Leather refurbed

    The interior leather refurbishment is complete.
    Very happy with the result except that they have not been able to do anything with the saggy drivers seat bolster. They were concerned that the leather may tear, hmmm?
    First 3 are as was, other s as refurbed.

    I have been meaning to do the seats in my 355 for the last three years, and I finally had a go a couple of weeks ago. I am quite pleased with the result, just not sure about the satin finish lacquer so I might do them again. I used a Gliptone dye kit and sprayed it on. Not perfect but a big improvement.ok

    Definitely a big improvement

    I agree that a more matte finish looks a little better once in the car though.

    Both sets look great. Be interested to see the results of your carpets.

    With the Gliptone, do you get a choice of finish
