I got the kit for 200 through leatherique. And dashshocker you are wrong my friend of you anything about the leather dyeing community theres certain colors which are more potent than other and cinnamon is one of them it has more tendency to bond and cure with the leather. Now if I did a color change to say imola red also a BMW red that a is no no because that dye is less potent. Also there are steps you take so that the dye will cure to the existing leather which I took.
1. You sand down your seats... Yes I said sand ha sounds crazy but that's what needs to be done but you sand it with really high grit I started with 400 then smoothed out the leather using 600. That's gets the leather crazy soft! You sand with a prepping agent so the dye comes off the your leather.
2. After all that and everything is prepped you clean it with Prestine clean and make sure the leather is free of any rips tears bumps etc....
3. You apply the leather with a brush or air spray it. I started with a brush and didng get the best results so I upgraded to a spray gun and the results left me speechless. It's looks amazing hands down.

But those are the basic steps but I'll but pics later tonight guys I basically completed tar rear seat both bottom and top and did all three headrests
