    I had a similar thing done in another vehicle and afterwards my seat felt very rubbery. Does this kinda of do the same thing? If i touch it after will it feel the same as before like leather or have a rubbery feel?

    It seems like a good temporary fix but there is always the issue of the paint coming off when cleaning it! I routinely use Griot's Garage interior cleaner with a micro fiber towel on my seats and them follow that up with Griot's Garage leather cleaner which helps remove more of those deep, soaked in dirt deposits in the seat and actually puts back some of those original oils found in leather! My seats are in good condition for a 2003 and I have never considered taping up my interior and using an aerosol can!

    check out www.griotsgarage.com and look at the interior cleaners and you will find some good products that will help clean/save your leather and even make your car smell clean.

    Re: Diy - freshen up leather seats for $20 - no more ugly seat bottoms

    So I just purchased my Escalade 3 days ago, and the drivers seat could use freshening up. My problem is I'm color blind and paranoid about if i have the shale interior. Were there multiple tan looking interiors? I have a 2003, and all people can tell me is the exterior looks silver and the interior tan, if that helps. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Just did this to my 2000 STS with same color shale interior. Results looks remarkable so far. Basically looks like a brand new interior, but with creasing. I will post in a few weeks how well its holding up......

    Re: Diy - freshen up leather seats for $20 - no more ugly seat bottoms

    Two questions guys. I have an '05 CTS and I'd like to do this, I have the grey leather with black inserts. 1) What color paint matches the grey? 2) Do I need to tape off the black inserts somehow? And if so, what would be the best way?

    Thanks

    this has been more of a temp fix for me. once people start sitting on it, it creases up and peels. im gonna end up just getting new seat bottoms.

    Which of their gray paints would be the closest to my '03 EXT Pewter interior?

    Guys who did this already, how is this stuff holding up? I wonder how it would hold up in the winter time coming up and freezing temps etc?

    for me its a temporary fix for a month or 2, then it starts to crack and flake off, i know they have the seat bottoms for the front seats, but i cant find the seat bottoms for the 2 rear captains, whenever i find them im replacing them

    Just remember he said it's more of a dye than a thicker paint. I wouldn't try to cover up one color to make another. I just bought two cans off of ebay and will be doing my whole interior over. I am sure that it will look better than the weathered look that I have now. Whoever does it should take pics to show others what it turns out like.
