I sent the company a sample of Antelope (AGE) leather so I could re-do my steering wheel and a few days later I received what I needed to get the job done - pics below.

Interesting. I did my seats which were the Oatmeal because I found success stories on this forum. I would kind of like to redo the horn button pad (its not bad, but not perfect either). Its a darker color than the seats and I don't know what color code to order.

Ken S.

Thanks for posting this!

Looks GREAT!

Just bought my car and interior doesn't show any wear...

...yet.

I am worried about the drivers seat bolster.

I might get some of this and take care of the wear by touching up the seat before it gets too bad.

Thanks again!

Stewart

I spent 100 on car seat covers to keep the originals perfect.
They came but I decided to wait until my car mats arrived so I could give it a good clean before installing everything.
Just got out of my car in shorts with a buckled metal thing on them & heard a scraping noise.
I was completely gutted until I found this thread, now I have hope.

therepairwizard.co.uk doesn't appear to exist anymore though.
Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Now let me preface this post by saying I usually do not agree with shortcuts, and most of the time I take the longest way around just to be sure something is done right. However, this project was purely cosmetic and I had to come up with a short term fix.

I found the repairwizard, a UK company that sells a leather paint/re-dye/repair kit for leather and happened to have the proper AGD Oatmeal color which to me meant they must have done some research. My goal was to dab a bit on the cracked areas of my interior so it would look a bit more presentable, however once it arrived I fell in love.

I bought 2 pots of it, which it states one pot does one seat and I only planned on doing the cracks. I ended up doing more but it matches the factory color so very well that I did not have to to them top to bottom.

I ended up doing the seating surfaces of the front seats, the entire bottom of the rear and the centers of the back of the rear seat. It feels and looks great. No word on longevity yet but this was quick and simple - if I had to do this once a year I would.

Anyway, on with the pics.

Is this the right one?
