This Land Rover car seat had a tear in it almost as if it had been cut with a knife. The customer was looking to have this repaired. Firstly the technician set up all their equipment. The technician uses leather cleaner and a lint free cloth to clean the area. Once this has been done another lint free cloth and leather prep is used to prep the area. These remove any dirt and debris as well as the manufacturers coating on the leather.
Next the technician began to repair the Land Rover leather car seat. This is done by applying leather glue to the torn edges to glue them back to the seat. After this has been done the technician applies leather filler to fill the gap in between the torn pieces of leather. They then use a hairdryer to dry the leather filler.
Now that this has been done the technician uses 400 grit sandpaper to sand down the damaged area. This ensures that it is smooth.
Once the area has been sanded down the technician uses a lint free cloth and the black leather dye to dab the colour on to the damaged area. They then dry the damaged area with a hairdryer.
Once this was done the technician added layers of texture paste with a sponge. After each layer is applied the technician applies colour to it with a lint free cloth and dries it with a hair dryer.
This applies a texture to the Land Rover leather car seat. Once several layers of this have been applied and coloured the technician applies the final layer of lacquer to the car seat. 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.
