Hey! Thanks for the post! You're the one that came up from Virginia with the white van, right? Thanks for saying something on here, I know how it can be, buying stuff based on pictures from someone who is a distance away... I appreciate the reference! :thumbsup:

Three and a half years later......

So I recently "won" a Buy it Now on Ebay on a pair of brand new, showroom model, never been on the road black Recaro CSE's, yes, CSE's (owner's manuals included), but due to a third party buying them ahead of me direct from the owner (who was not the Ebay seller) outside of the Ebay process, my deal never materialized. After pouting for a while :crybaby2: :rolleyes: I came to the realization that I am the worlds greatest procrastinator/ biggest lazy ass on the planet and FINALLY started the Leatherique based restoration of the Recaro Classic C's that I bought back in 2009 and that are the subject of this thread. :surrender:

The leather was ROCK HARD to start, but otherwise in pretty good shape. So far I'm on my third application of the rejuvenating oil and I must say that the leather seems to be responding really nicely. It's getting softer and more surface consistent. I think it's going to take maybe three or so more rounds of oil soak for them to get as good as they're going to get. I have mounts and plan to install the seats when I'm done. If things work out, I'll post some pics.

Sometimes missing out makes us realize what we already have :thumbsup: I speak from experience.

Can't wait to see the pics.
