From a happy customer -- "Even though I take care of my vehicle, the seats just shown excessive wear. Your product has them looking like they are brand new. Pictures do not the seats justice."
A customer sent this in -- they had an ink stain that they tried to pull up with a Magic Eraser, but got to the rawhide before they could eliminate the stain. Fortunately, they were able to get matching Parchment leather dye for their Lexus RX350 and touched up the spot perfectly. Good as new!

Believe it or not, this is the same seat. The owner had thought that his seats had been ruined after cleaning chemicals were spilled on the leather. He was able to bring it back to perfection with some new Silverstone II leather dye. As a note for other BMW owners with Silverstone leather -- you've probably tried to find Silverstone II dye but been frustrated when the dye was too dark. There's a huge difference between Silverstone and Silverstone II. If you need the right color for your BMW, order from Seat Doctors. BMW leather colors can be a challenge, but we're up to the task.

a little bit of matching Light Frost Beige dye was used to touch up the wear along the seam of the lower bolster, as well as the discoloration on the cloth on the side. Good as new, and took about 15 minutes, start to finish. This repair was performed with a foam paint brush.
Mulberry was a super rare color used between 1995 and 1999 on BMW vehicles -- a customer was gracious enough to send me some material to match to, and I developed a formula for it! If you're looking for Mulberry leather touch up dye for your BMW, you can feel free to place an order.
I love getting feedback like this:
A customer sent in this repair -- restored the Calcite Cream interior in their Volvo C70 convertible -- looks great!
This was a simple project - after making sure the seat was super clean, color was restored by touching up with a foam paint sponge! It took one hour start to finish.
A customer just sent this in -- they couldn't believe how much better the seat looked after just one coat!! -- of course, it likely needs another coat or two to get back to perfection, but this is just an example of how much a little leather dye can help improve a seat. If you're looking to touch the interior of your Lexus, we have dye for almost every make -- from Acura to Volvo. Navigate to www.seatdoctors.com/diy-leather-dye for more information.
Repairing this damage took a few more coats than usual, 7 before full coverage was achieved, but still an incredible transformation! Because the damage had exposed bare leather, the leather was first sanded with 400 grit sandpaper, 3 coats applied, and then sanded again with 400 grit. The surface is again smooth!

This repair was done by scrubbing with Simple Green and a Scotchbrite pad, drying with a hairdryer, and rubbing in matching dye over 3 very light coats. Need leather dye for your Toyota Tundra? CLICK HERE!
This simple repair was accomplished by
- Cleaning the seat thoroughly with Simple Green cleaner. New dye will not adhere to contaminants in the seat.
- Loading the leather dye onto a lint-free paper towel and rubbing into the cracks.
That's honestly about it. Excess dye was buffed out after the final application using a damp paper towel. This took 3 applications, giving plenty of dry time between coats.

This Honda S2000 was restored using two methods. We started by dabbing on a base coat of dye using a paint sponge, with two very light coats. This worked well to fill I dye to some of the deeper cracks. Next, and airbrush was used to feather in 3 very light coats over the repair area and blend in with the rest of the seat, which still looks very good. If you're looking to touch up your Honda, you'll be happy to know we have extensive data on Honda colors going back to the early 90's. Click here to order touch up dye for your vehicle!

This poor car owner had some tires replaced on his 2004 Acura TL, and the tire shop left the tires on the back seat baking in the sun for barely a day. When the tires were removed, rubber stains remained, and the customer despaired.
Fortunately, we have an exact match for Acura's Parchment leather. The customer cleaned the seat as much as possible, but the tire tracks were fairly ingrained. He followed with 4 super light coats of Acura Parchment leather dye using a Preval Sprayer, giving a half hour between coats. 2 hours after the final coat, he buffed it a damp microfiber cloth.
Leather dye works fantastic for damage such as this. If you are looking for advice on how best to tackle a dye transfer like this, rest assured that Seat Doctors leather dye can help restore your leather back to like-new condition.
