Excellent job! I'm sure it was very rewarding to perform that level of reconditioning to a car that looked used and abused.

Believe it or not the wrinkles actually got reduced simply from cleaning the leather properly. You wouldnt believe how much of a difference it makes to constantly clean your leather, the leather conditioner barely makes a difference at first, but does help in the long run. Bmw video coming out very soon, as well as how to polish rims. Should i post that on this thread or start a new one?
