This gives you a great example of how effective the foam paint brush method can be. This seat had a few trouble spots, but essentially the entire seat bottom and seat back needed some love. I started with 3 light coats on the outside panels of the lower and upper bolster, and then 2 more light coats along the entire seat surface to even the whole thing out.

Some air freshener spilled on this customer’s 2013 Cadillac SRX, and when they went to clean it up, the topcoat came with it, leaving this ugly splotch. They were able to repair the damage area with matching Shale dye, saving them hundreds of dollars. An upholsterer was quoting several hundred dollars to replace the panel, and the dealership was quoting over $600 to replace the whole seat cover!

Light Cashmere seats were scrubbed with Simple Green and a Scotchbrite pad. Color applied with a foam paintbrush.
Here's another good example of how easy fixing some wear on your leather seats can be once you have the right dye -- color was touched up with a simple foam cosmetic wedge. This took only two applications of color to restore the seat. This color is called "Cinnamon Brown."
The dye was just right on the money. Blending was simply accomplished by the remarkable accuracy of your dye. Thanks so much for such a quality product.
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!
