    Default Leather seat wonít absorb dye

    Hello guys Iím dan and Iím new here. Iíve been trying to restore my seat with a dye and itís worked other than this small patch that doesnt seem to absorb the dye. Iíve tried rubbing alcohol and warm water nothing has worked so far. Iíve attached a pic, any help would really be appreciated.

    This leather finish is ďpaintedĒ and is not ďstainedĒ.
    You will need a surface opaque coating finish instead of leather grain staining with transparent dyestuff.

    You will need this Leather Perforated Auto Seat Color Refinishing - Kit-Ap7.cl

    from this link:

    And probably you will need three colors of Black, White, and Ochre to custom match the spot or panel or entire seat.

    Let me know your further interest and we can discuss in further details

    Are those included in 1 kit? Are there instructions with the kit? Would you say this is a wear from friction? I’d like to say this is color code n6tt standard grey.

    The kit only comes with one color.

    You will need to match the color on your own. And from what I see 80 to 90% is white, and the rest are Ochre and Black to match to your original.


    >>> Are there instructions with the kit?

    I will give you the instruction from here.


    >>> Would you say this is a wear from friction?

    Yes, or some kind of rubbing contact.


    >>> I’d like to say this is color code n6tt standard grey.

    I am not familiar with this color code, otherwise, you have to order from where the color code comes from.
