Some more information from www.lovemustangs.com - this is a good thread and gose into more details on colouring leather and replenashing old worn seats. Keep in mind that the process is the same.


How to replenish the finish on your car's leather interior and care

 

Some leather car seats wear like iron, others seem more like paper
mache over foam. Regardless, most will show their age over time. Proper
maintenance of your leather interior will make it last a long time.
Leather needs to be kept moisturized or it will dry and crack.
Unfortunately, the guy who had the car before you didn't know this, and
your leather interior is showing some serious wear. Thankfully, there is
hope. A simple leather replenishing and repair can make them look close
to new again.

Choose Your Product and Color Match the Leather


We believe in giving restoration a chance in all cases except when there
is no integrity of the leather to build upon. Luckily, there are some
great products on the market today that enables you to restore your old
leather fairly easily. When restoring or maintaining our car's leather,
we have had good luck with Gliptone Liquid Leather Scuff Master, a
specialty product line available through distributors on the web. Other
products that we have heard work quite well are Lexol Leather Care and
Leather World.

What ever product you decide to use, contact the distributor regarding
the color matching of your leather. If you are restoring to the original
color, send a small swatch of leather (under the seat there is always a
spare piece) to the supplier for color matching. Alternatively, your
vehicles manufacturer’s color code or color name can help your supplier
give you a pretty good match.

Your products may be different, use whatever you feel is the best products for your car!

2. Thoroughly Clean the Leather Surfaces and Determine the Leather Condition.

Remove the seats or leather items from the interior of the car if
necessary. Then begin with a good vacuuming and cleaning, paying special
attention to removing the dirt and grime in the seams. Use a leather
cleaner product on a damp sponge or a soft clean cloth and rub in a
circular motion to remove the initial dirt. For grimy spots, use the
product with a soft bristle brush. Liquid Leather Scuff Master
recommends Gliptone Liquid Leather Gentle Cleaner, so that’s what we
used on this 1997 Jaguar XJ6. Remove any cleaner residue and gently wipe
the area with a mild solvent like isopropyl alcohol and allow the
leather to dry thoroughly. Examine the worn or faded spots on the
leather surface to decide if the quality of the leather for restoration
will have sufficient integrity. Also, any imperfections you see at this
stage will be amplified after dyeing. You can remove these with a light
sanding using 600 grit sandpaper and follow with a final cleaning. The
driver’s seat, as you see below, has quite a few creases and is highly
worn on the left side panel - but the leather is still in good shape and
a prime candidate for dying and conditioning

3. Apply the Liquid Leather.

Test the product on a small area for a color match - most manufacturers
supply a toner to alter the color if needed. If your satisfied with your
test area, apply the product per the manufactures recommendations -
usually with a spray gun, a soft bristled brush or by a sponge; we
prefer the latter.

For creases and cracks, dilute the product with 30% water and rub it
onto the leather. Let it dry for about a minute and then wipe with a
damp cloth. The product will come off good leather, but will remain in
the creases and cracks

4. Repairing Rubbed Off Leather Coloring

Once we had filled in the creases and cracks of the entire driver’s seat
satisfactorily, we concentrated on the left panel where the leather
color had rubbed off. Here we applied a thin coat of non-diluted liquid
leather to the area and dried it thoroughly with a hair dryer. We had to
repeat this step about 3 times, drying it completely each time to
achieve our desired result. A final coat was diluted with twenty percent
water and wiped down with a dry rag.

The next day we used Gliptone Liquid Leather Conditioner to the driver’s
seat which brought a rich shine to the leather. Liquid Leather Scuff
Master claims that once it has been properly applied to leather, it will
not come off on wet or dry clothes. We have found that to be true.
