STEP 1 - Prep & Clean the Area:
Spray the Color Prep & Cleaner to all areas that are going to be re-colored. Using the enclosed Scuff Pad, scuff the leather to prepare it to accept the Dye Colorant. DO NOT scratch the surface with the scuff pad; apply only light pressure to the leathers surface. Wipe clean and allow the leather to dry before moving on to the next step. For repairs, trim off any frayed or excess material. On burn damages, scrape off any charred area before repairing.
*Color Prep & Cleaner will not remove oil based staining. You will need Leather Master Degreaser for any oil or protein based stains.
STEP 2 - Inserting the Sub-Patch (Backing Material):
Trim away any frayed edges on the leather. Cut the sub-patch material about 1/4 bigger than the repair. Insert sub-patch into the leather and secure it with the WB-1 adhesive. Smooth out the surface making sure the leathers surface lies smooth. If padding is missing, add some cotton or foam to make area level. Apply the WB-1 Adhesive working it between the edges of the sub-patch and leather. Press together, let dry for a minimum of 30 minutes. You may use a hair dryer to speed up the drying time. After the patch had dried, fill the area with filler.
*Small holes less that 1/4 may not need the backing material.
STEP 3 - Applying the Filler:
Use the applicator to fill the area between the two pieces of material. It is recommended that you apply several thin coats versus one thick coat. This will give you more strength in your repair and ensure that the filler has properly cured before adding color. Make sure each layer is dry before adding additional filler. You may use a hair dryer to assist in drying. Hold the hair dryer at a 30° angle and at least 12 from repair surface. Make sure the filler is level with both pieces of leather. You may need to lightly sand to get an even surface.
*If you have surface scratches then you will need Leather World Finish Filler. The Finish Filler will build any rough and uneven surfaces up to be sanded and smoothed out. For deeper scratches that are not torn through the leather, Leather World Base Coat has more solids and can be used to build up the leathers finish to even it out.
STEP 4 - Applying the Color:
Test the color first in an inconspicuous area before you start dyeing your repair to make sure the color matches. The Dye Colorant can be applied by spraying or using the enclosed sponge. Make sure all adjoining areas are cleaned around the outer edges of the repair area. Put dye in sprayer or on sponge and apply LIGHT coats to the leathers surface. It will take between 2-4 coats of the leather dye to fully achieve the color of the dye. You will want to allow 4-6 hours of dry time between each coat and 24 hours of dry time after the final coat before use. You may use a hair dryer to speed up dry time. If the area is not completely smooth you can add another coat of Leather Filler or Base Coat before applying the next coat of Dye Colorant. If more Filler or Base Coat is needed, we recommend adding a little bit of color to the product before its applied.
*Spraying the dye will allow more of an even distribution onto the leathers surface. If you do not have a sprayer we recommend the Crown Spra Tool Kit.
STEP 5 - Applying Protection Cream:
After 24-48 hours apply a light coating of Leather Protection Cream for added durability and protection against general soiling.

Am amazed how the seats now look. Almost like new. I think because of the light color, took more coats to cover the seats. I bought the 16oz bottle for the front and back seats. I'm glad I did. The color match was perfect. Very pleased with the product and the results.
This was the second repair kit I have ordered in the past five years. This repair kit contained everything that I required to complete the repair of multiple tears in the leather. The cost of the kit ($79.00) was reasonable if you live in the USA, but gets pricey if living in Canada. Exchange, Customs duties, Shipping, GST and Prov Taxes will double the cost of this kit. Make sure you have majors repairs to justify the cost of this kit.
I was very impressed with this product. I refinished the leather interior of an old BMW and the color match was perfect. My seats look almost new. My only complaint is that the larger size packages seem to only apply to the dye itself. I ran out of cleaning solution because the cleaner was still the small size even though the dye was huge.
Did the back seats that were worn on my Honda from old age and cracking. Applied with a harbor freight detail spray gun I got for $12. Light coats and patients is key. Was super nervous with first two coats but stuck with it laying on very lightly. End result looks amazing, canâ€™t wait to do the front seats
Had a pretty large hole in my passenger side front seat from 20 years of use and abuse, did not expect the product to be able to fill it as flawlessly as it did. Paint matched GM leather color. Looks brand new. Way better then spending almost $700 to have the seat re-upholstered. Would definitely recommend this product.
This repair kit worked great
Planning to do another car...thank you.
The product results were outstanding, better than hoped for and easy to use. Only sorry I didn't take before pictures.
I used it for the steering wheel of my Mercedes e320, 100% satisfied with the results, before I had used the dyes for the seats, as always, excellent.
