Re dieing leather
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!.

Re: Re dieing leather
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.
