Ordered the product last week. Pulled both front seats out of my vert and put them on work bench. My Rt seat was in fair condition but the Driver seat needed much LOVE. I wet sanded both seats this past weekend and I could not believe how all the cracks in the leather sanded away. I am planning on a nother prep before I redye. I am taking photos of all stages. so far so good! I guess I will see if the product works as they claim!!!

I will be posting photos when the job is done. This is a very slow process, but i think the key is allowing enough time for the product to soak in to the leather. I do't see this being a job you could do if you depend on the vehicle as a dailey driver. I have put at least 30 hours in too the process and I have only worked 2 head rest (rear) both front seats and the bottom rear. my plan is to get all parts preped and dye all parts at same time. my driver seat was the worst. But it is amazing how the product and process has changed the leather. I did crack filler on the drivers seat last night. I put 4x coats on with a tooth pick. I plan on letting this cure for atleast 48 hours. I am doing all restore on a work bench. I don't see being able to do it in the car. I plan on treating my 04 corvette vert with this stuff, but conditioner only!!
