The 10 year old leather seats in my car were looking a little worn and worse for wear in the usual places like the seat bolster etc. And being a light colour, if you don't keep on top of cleaning/protecting them the ingrained dirt is hard to shift.I had spoken to a company local to me about doing the refurb, and for the price of Â£250+vat they would re-colour the two front seats.I thought I would do this next year when the weather warms up, but I then read a topic on detailing world of a guy doing them himself with a kit from Leather Clinic.So I thought I would give it a go, for Â£60 if i fecked it up I could always get them done by the professional as originally planned. Bought the kit last week and prepared for a Saturday morning on the car.First off took the drivers seat out and took it to the bedroom to work on as it was too cold and wet to do outside, got told to do one about taking over the front room............ A quick picture of the kit Took off what trim I could and the rest masked up ready to go. First up a good going over to clean up as best we can, using harsher things than I ever would use normally. Next step is to remove the factory finish from the seats using a solvent and scouring pad. I then rubbed down the worst bits, the seat bolster etc with 1200 grit w/d to smooth out the cracks.Then quick wipe down with an alcohol cleaner to make sure there's no oils etc left on the surface. The next step is to sponge on a layer of colour to get in all the cracks and lay a key down, the subsequent layers are then sprayed on. Then the first layer finally sprayed on.....and I mean finally because the spray gun I was using was nothing but trouble, add to this the fact the colourant was too thick and needed to be thinned out just to get it through the gun, but this conclusion i got to after spending fookin ages persisting with it and... getting pissed off with it... throwing it against the wall and breaking the tip... having to go to halfords to buy a new one... I then came across my next problem..... before I done all of the above I DID NOT check if the colour actually matched. Doh.Don't get me wrong the colour is not a million miles apart, but it is a lighter colour, maybe more silver than grey. I could only assume that they got the colour wrong or there are more than one shade of BMW - silver light grey ?!!?!? I decided to carry on as I needed to use the car this week and could use the experiance to make the next time quicker.So onwards, after a few more coats, drying in between with SWMBO's hair dryer, and plenty of swearing at the god dam spray gun. Next up is the super seal finish coating, which is a lot thinner than the colour and so works much better with the spray gun. Then left for an hour and then add the final matt finish, which was again thicker and would just about come out of the fooking spray gun. Head rest on to show the colour differance. Pictures outside before refitting. Back in the car. I have spoken with the Furniture Clinic this morning and we have agreed that I will send my headrest to them to check the colour and match it. To sum up on the product itself ignoring the colour issue, I would have to say the pictures speak for themselves and the finish is very good and they look brand new. With more practise, on the few small areas I was not 100% happy with, they could be perfected. The biggest issue I had was with the spray gun, it took almost twice as long as it should have because of fooking around with this thing and had me raging with the right ump for most of the day, next time I will be using a proper touch up spray gun like this. http://www.spraygunsdirect.co.uk/product.php?tid=76&products_id=6167 Thnx for looking.
