This car seat had some areas of colour loss on the back of the seat. Firstly our leather repairs technician set up their equipment in order to complete the colour loss restoration and took the before pictures.
Secondly our technician cleans the area. This is done with leather cleaner and a lint free cloth. It ensures that all of the dirt from on top of the leather is removed. Next the technician preps the area. Similarly this is done with leather prep and a lint free cloth. This removes the manufacturers coating and all the debris from the leather.
Next the technician uses the air compressor to spray the leather. This is with leather dye in order to re-dye the leather in the areas where there was colour loss. After the leather dye is sprayed it is dried with a hair dryer. A few evenly spread layers are applied all of which are dried with a hair dryer.
The technician then applies the final layer onto the car seat colour loss area. This is of the lacquer which is used to seal the restoration. After the restoration 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 the customer can help it. The area should then not be used for approximately 48 hours depending on how much colour and is applied.
