This 4×4 BMW car was suffering from areas of colour loss and staining. The owner of the vehicle was looking to have the two front seats of the car colour restored. The below pictures show the chairs with their damage.
Initially when the technician arrived they set up their equipment. First they begin by cleaning the 4×4 BMW car leather seats. This is done using leather cleaner and a scrubbing brush. Once the leather seats have been scrubbed a lint free cloth is used to wipe away all residue of dirt. Next the technician uses leather prep and another lint free cloth to prep the seats removing the manufacturers seal and any debris.
After the 4×4 BMW car leather seats have been cleaned and prepped the technician begins to mix the leather dye colour. The colour of these seats is beige sands. the technician has to use a mixture of colours to mix it.
- Yellow oxide/Red oxide
Once the correct amount of each colour has been created by mixing these colours together in the correct proportions they can move on to colouring. The technnician uses an air brush and a compressor to spray the colour onto the leather seats. Even coats are gently applied to the seats. This is repeated again and again until enough coats have been applied and the seats are fully restored. Lastly the technician applies a coat of lacquer onto the seats. This seals the repair.
After the repair has been completed the area needs to be left for at least 1 hour until it is dry enough to touch if the customer wishes to have a closer look at the repair however we do not recommend it if you can help it. The area should then not be used for approximately 48 hours depending on how much colour and filler is applied during the repair and on how much damage there was to repair.
