Cleaned off Alezan dye?

In typical 350z fashion one job now appears to have lead to another job.


The bolsters on my Alezan leather drivers seat were looking a little worse for wear, dirt getting into cracks that i wasn't able to clean with my usual wipe method so I figured i'd try and do it properly, bought some APC, a detailing brush to work it into the leather and some leather restorer for afterwards.... I got as far as using the brush on the APC after letting it sit for a minute or two and I now appear to have cleaned off some layer of dye?


Passenger seat went flawless so I assume this is a previous owners attempt to repair the leather that I've now reversed?




Help! What are my options here? :surrender:

Nice one thanks i'll have a look if there are alternatives closer to Nottingham as that company only covers certain areas. Is it a case of re-dying the bits that have been removed by me in essence?

Hi Sargara!

I used  the company mentioned by Adrian yesterday.Im very pleased with outcome.My interior wasn’t in greatest condition and I didn’t want to attemp repair myself as most likely I wouldn’t achieve good result.

Very knowledgable guy as his company does lots of leather repairs,reconditioning and even full retrim.

Whole job took him aprox 3 1/2 hours,all fully masked so no marks or overspray on plastics etc..

Repair was done on both seats,gear knob and handbrake.

Know of anyone around South Cheshire who can do this?


Ricey's from around those parts, isn't he? Have a Google for Revolve Automotive, he definitely does leather restoration too.
