This grey leather bolster has some damage to it that looks like colour loss. This requires a leather restoration.
Our technician arrived at the customers car to restore the damage to the bolster on the car seat. Before the technician could do any work to the bolster he used masking tape to cover the surrounding area. This is to ensure that no overspray can land on the car during the restoration process.
First the technician uses a lint free cloth and leather cleaner to clean the damaged area. This is to ensure there is no dirt embedded in the restoration. After the area has been cleaned the technician preps it using leather prep and another lint free cloth. This is to remove the manufacturers coating and any pesticides on the leather. Now the technician used sandpaper to sand down the area just to make sure that it is all smooth. This car seat also has a small hole in the leather. The technician applies leather filler and dries with a hairdryer.
Next the technician can begin to apply grey colour to the damage. He does this using an air brush to spray over the colour loss area. Once the area has been coloured grey the technician applies the final coat of lacquer to seal the restoration. Lastly this seals and protects the restoration.
On going maintenance
We advise that all leather is cleaned and protected every six months this allows the leather to stay clean and fresh and the protection cream gives that extra barrier between the wear and tear and the car seat.
Cleaning kits are always recommended after every repair to help enable you to maintain your leather from future damage. Our technicians have some with them. Similarly the technicians can recommend where you can get them. Please feel free to ask our technician any questions where they will be happy to give you any help and guidance that you require.
