Cheap leather fix

Recommended Posts

Some thicc boy must have been the first owner of my car, 'cause he really wore the bolsters and leather. In the 8 years I have owned it, the wear hasn't really changed! 

I bought this Ali-express leather fixer - and gotta say I am very impressed. These are night time photos so it looks more shiny than IRL - and i have no before's sorry. 

But before there was crazy cracks, and white line/cracks. Pretty fcked. It needed a filler style fix, and this was literally rub on / dry. Worth a punt...

Total Body Shop in Hastings also sell this - looks the the same product. Probably slightly more expensive, but hopefully delivery times are shorter!

They list on TradeMe. For example - https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/motors/car-parts-accessories/interior/other/listing/3149649252

Woah, result looks good. Got a little bolster wear in the M4, think I might give this a shot.

Does it seem reasonably durable? Can you feel/see that it's there?

It does seem very durable. I have tried other filler/dyes and they are not. The leather is pretty average, you can't tell. On newer leather you may notice it?

Hmm yeah did a bit of googling, and your car should have nappa leather while mine has merino so not exactly the same. Colour looks similar in the pics though. My wear is pretty minor so slightly less than perfect is still acceptable I think :)
