Hi,

Once the leather starts to bubble will it lead to blisters/cracks in the surface.

It's due to poor maintance during it's life, as it sounds like the leather has been drying out.

A solution could be to unfit the parts, keep them cool and add a thick leather treathment once a day for about a weeks time or so.

It will not remove the bubles, but it will delay the futher progress.

And then start to look for replacement parts.

is it where the leather is comming away from the door card......

if it is you can take a seringe with a fine needle attached and inject some glue behind the leather to addear it back to the card.

I was thinking of that too but what kind of glue...silicone or superglue? will superglue harden up and damage the leather? and in reference to the stiched M3 door style anyone got it for sale? thanks fellas for your inputs........
