Interior leather spray?? Is it really that easy??

I went into an interior/upholstry shop this afternoon and asked about leather seat work and getting the cracks filled in, she said they do not do the leather seat cracking but she said to go to my local hardware store or Home Depot etc. and buy some interior leather spray and do it myself.



Is it really that easy and how will my results be?



I have to do a s500 armrest in tan and the two front seats of an xk8 in black.



Thanks!

I doubt that it's that easy because how do you match the color(s)?

Advice that is that vague and clueless qualifies as fraud in my view. Hardware store or Home Depot? They're not even going to have anything to sell to you. No, it's not that easy.

No moisturizer will help once cracks are present, they will only prevent them. You can get filler products but I have never used them. The person who gave you that advice is incorrect on every point. I'd just replace the armrest cover, the seats you may wish to check with a more qualified shop. Good luck.

I'd say the 3 leaders in restoring and refinishing auto leather seats are Leatherique, ColorPlus and SEM. The first two are small companies that split off from one years ago when the inventor/founder passed away. SEM is a fairly good sized auto chemical company. SEM has two different products for leather - Classic Coat in spray cans, and SureCoat that can be mixed to color match (not always easily). SEM has retail distribution, the other two are mail order.

You should be able to find all three with an internet search. All three have websites with good information. I'm using SEM these days but don't necessarily know it to be better than the other two.

How much of a color change can be done with these products? For example, I need palomino w123 coupe sunvisors. Other colors are still available, could they be changed to palomino suitably, or am I asking too much?

Thanks!

You can do color changes. The less the better.
