Hi Gareth,

Assuming that the leather is badly worn and beyond restoration, a good option is looking for a new seat entirely.

If it is just  showing signs of wear, it is possible to refurbish the leather yourself using a good cleaner and also a good leather feeder.

I have seen on TV a seat restoration in which the leather has been "repainted" when very worn, and a good job it was.  I think you would be able to find this company online and, from memory, the seat colour can be matched by them and the job done probably without removing the seat.

Let us know how you get on.

Regards,

Peter.

great item above--its worth having a go yourself first then if no good get it done elsewhere. Mine looked just as above but with the same kit and an hours work its all healed and looking good. I also got brave and painted the old cracks -wow what a difference. --recommend

Jim, 

Can you put the instructions [and in your other post similarly] on the site in a PDF format as that would be printable.

hi gareth,

seats dont need to be removed but seats need to be cleaned to colour match.
theres a whole host of leather repair approved guys on Pro-valets.co.uk

Bert Youell will be able to direct you to your closest leather repair technician.
