    Re dieing leather

    Hello All.
    when i recieved my Allante. the Leather was died with terrible leather die. and it was splochy and streaky every where. looked like crap.
    i dont have a before picture but i have after pictures
    i used a cleaner and then a leather conditioner and then die and then polish.
    and i will finish up with the leather conditioner again.
    it took along time and taking the old die off was a PITA. i used the cleaner with 600 grit sandpaper to bring it down to the original...
    sadly the seats are beyond repair..... i think i will need them redone for sure!.

    Looks like a fun project car. I refinished my door panels and dash with SEM Color Coat Flexible coating. I was very pleased with the outcome.
