    Question Recommended leather care products?

    I am looking for a quality leather cleaner plus conditioner. Ideally a system that is designed to work together.

    Hard to describe but currently my driver seat is a tad noisy due to the leather rubbing. I'd like to solve this glitch without making the seats look like they've been rubbed down with a piece of bacon (not like in the pics below).

    So far I've been using Meguiars conditioner but I have the feeling this stuff wears off rather quick. I don't want to redo it every month...

    im in the process of recolouring some leather and their products altho not overly cheap seem to be quite good!

    Ive also found they are more than happy to respond to my emails with stupid questions too

    My leather needs some TLC and, like Razor, I find that Meguiars conditioner wears off. Which to me indicates that it's not really conditioning all that well.

    Are you getting them to re-colour your leather, Tim?
    Ben.

    nope they are based up north i think. Im down in Vic. I ordered the products from them to recolour some leather seats i got my hands on. let me tell ya its hard and dirty work tho! I have done a couple of the headrests so far. and it has come out reasonably. the more patient u r the better the results u get.

    I was quoted $800 to have the job done professionally at a local leather place.

    But yeah. they sell dyes, crack filler, cleaner and conditioner i think.

    I did mine with leatherique. Turns out a treat. I've also been using the maguires stuff inbetween as my car gets used day in day out, and with sport seats some people dont know how to get in the car (wear factor of 10 on the passenger seat)

I don;t know what condition they were in before but they wouldn't have been crash hot with over 200,000 kms on in the heat and sun of Perth. I have the receipt and he paid $726. The seats look nearly as good as new so it doesn't seem expensive to me.

    I had about 8 panels replaced and the whole interior coloured and then protection spray over the top for around $900. Really happy with the way it turned out.
