Did anyone use the leather dye on their interior. Magoo, I know we talked about ti before. Did u do it. How did it come out? Any pics. Thinking about doing 400 seats.They are very good now but you can see where the slight leather creases are discolored. Will dye even help this?

Bruno, Yes I did dye the seats. My car was in storage for 18yrs. The leather was great and had no memory marks at all. The color was ok but I wanted to re-dye it to look new again. I used the Connolly waterbased acrylic dye and it did a wonderful job. As I have said before, I don't like to call any spray coating a dye but the Connolly was the orig. dye used on the seats. The process is a two step process having a base coat and a clear top coat. You must use the clear top coat to make the job durable. If there are any cracks or scratches in the leather they have a flexible leather crack filler. These products work great. But the job is only as good as the preparation. The seats and or door panels should come out and the areas carefully masked off to do the job. Bill Hirsch Co. sells the products and can give you all the tech. advice you will need. They are very helpful. These products will not crack or peel. Use it with confidence of a good job. Mine has been on 2 yrs. and it looks like new. If I remember correctly your seats were tan. If so the dye color no. is 3218 Biscuit, but to be sure send them a swatch cut from under your front seats or have them send you their color charts. Bill Hirsch Co. 1-800-828-2061. My camera is on the blink so no pics . You will be pleased with the final result.
