    This was another repair I did. The color match looked much better in person. The colors were hand mixed by me. With some colors you would get it really close, try to get it better (I'm picky) and miss the mark by a huge amount. Then you would have to bring it back or start over again. Fun stuff.

    Whoa! how did you do that! I cannot see any sign that you sew those cracks! Is that how it looks like up close?

    Yeah they look just like I remember them. Close up you would noticed it raised a bit like a scare. But you normally wouldn't see the thread. I tried pretty hard to hide it as much as possible.

    Here is a small scratch in a leather seat that I fixed in the shop.

    If they were that bad I would have used a degreaser to lift some of those stains out of the seats. I have seen seats like that or worse off than that. I think the worse thing people can do is have pets inside their car because they seem to urinate everywhere and make a mess with their fur.

    You need to be careful with the leather. You can remove color a stain them if you get too carried away. They were not the hardest seats I had to clean. But they were extremely dirty.

    Great job by both of you on the upholstery. My cars have leather and I have been using a cleaner and a moisturizer. It does make it a bit slippery (it does dry) for my friends who say I take corners too fast. I too would be very interested on any suggestions for small cracking or snips.

    Wow! that's some amazing job you did. It must have given the owners a good feeling to see their dirty seats looking like new again.
