Leather seat past it?
« on: November 15, 2015, 20:47:28 PM »
Hello all,

My drivers side front seat looks shocking but not sure if it is salvageable? I've never owned a car with leather before so not sure on upkeep or repairs.

Also will my seats be the exact same as a later i.e. 1997 model? or did they change leather types?



Thanks in advance

I would say all seats are the same.....you could get it repaired/re-covered

All the same apart from colour. It is repairable but would look daft against the rest of seat tbh!

Thanks for the reply guys.

Alz your probably right, I think my best bet would be to get a decent second hand front and passenger seat from someone breaking their car.

I would say its repairable .
the base just needs re feeding and re colouring . I buy dyes from

 SCUFFmaster Dyes - Gliptone Leathercare

the bolster will need a new piece both the smooth bit with the worn hole and more than likely the perferated bit. find a car upholster to do the repair
as for matching the leather , there seems more rear seats out there that are not needed . get one and use the material
