    Summertimes is coming and this will be my next project. I also hear something about crack filler to get the wrinkles out. Youtube is also great, they show you what to do step by step

    This is awesome, thanks for sharing!

    I do have one question that will annoy some of you since its been asked several times in this thread.

    I have a white diamond CTS with tan seats. Shale will be that color right? It just looks so grey on the color chart!

    I just did this on my Escalade with Shale Leather. All I can say is AMAZING!!! Great tip. I bought the cleaner and dye from Finish Master...they sell so much of it that they cant keep it...had to order but I got it next day. I bought one container of the cleaner and 2; cans of dye...about $40 A~Z. The 2: cans is enough to re-do an entire Escalade ESV.

    My right rear 2nd row bucket was worn badly by the previous owner...I think that it carried a Child Safety seat and the friction over time wore it down. I cleaned it and applied 2: coats of the dye and it looks new...I mean BRAND NEW!!! Fantastic Product!!!

    It should say in the owners manual(if you have it) I think it is mild soap and water
