The slideshow of images above shows the Maserati car in which our team undertook repairs upon. The before photos show the cracks in which the owner of the car wished to have repaired.
Our technician took images show hidden places on the Maserati car where there is a different colour this is from where the owner had previously had the car seat repaired and another technician had sprayed the chair the wrong colour. After noticing the original colour we colour matched to it to spray the chair back to its original colour to match the other seats inside the car.
Our technician undertook the repair and cleaned the seat. They do this using leather cleaner and a lint free cloth. They then prep the areas using leather prep and another lint free cloth. Once this has been done the technician sands down the cracks and sets up to colour the chair. This is done by putting tape over the green edging to ensure no dye of the wrong colour goes over it. After spraying the chair the technician removed the tape. Carefully they went over the green to cover any patches of colour loss using the air brush. Once this was all completed the technician applies the final coat of lacquer to the Maserati leather car seat.
Once completed the area needs to be left for at least 1 hour until it is dry enough to touch. This is if the customer wishes to have a closer look at the repair however we do not recommend it. The area should then not be used for approximately 48 hours. This depending on how much colour and filler is applied during the repair and on how much damage there was.
We advise that all leather is cleaned and protected every six months. This allows the leather to stay clean and fresh. The protection cream gives that extra barrier between the wear and tear and the leather.
Cleaning kits are always recommended after every repair. This to help enable you to maintain your leather from future damage. Please feel free to ask any questions they are happy to give you help and guidance that you may require.
