Default Seat reconditioned . Looks great


I just reconditioned both front seats and the drivers side armrest. I used NED (Ivory) dye and satin finish from Furniture Clinic.
Iím happy.

Looks great, did you use any filler? I used their dye and sealer a couple of years ago on the driver bolster, it was not a perfect match at the time, probably the seats had changed coulor over time, it now seems to have blended in but could do with being done again.

Which sealer did you use, mat or satin?

Default Satin seat finish

I used the satin finish. It looks so good, Iíll probably do the armrest (console) and the back seats. Thereís a half dozen or so cat scratches. I used some filler on the passenger side bolster.

Iíll see how it all holds up. Sure looks nice. Now I want to do the steering wheel. Different color though.

Thanks for the compliments

Filler in side bolster.
