Even the best leather car seats will eventually show signs of wear and cracking. It starts with small lines or faded areas and over years you can have major cracks and eventually holes appear and the leather can break down completely.
When car seats start to crack it can really spoil the appearance of the interior and make a car start to feel old. Replacing the seat can be prohibitively expensive as is reupholstering a full car seat but a leather car seat repair can deliver incredible results.
With the proper tools, training and experience cracked and worn leather can be cleaned, sealed and coloured to match the original leather leaving the original damage much harder to see and sometimes completely invisible.
