Leatherique Questions

I am about to try out Leatherique for the first time and had a couple questions.

1) When applying to the steering wheel do you put it over the colored M stitching, I was a little worried it may discolor the stitching.

2) Do you apply to the Carbon Leather Trim??

3) I was thinking of applying it in the morning around 9am and removing around 6-7pm, is this enough time?

4) Any general tips on application, tricks you have picked up?

Thanks!

If you haven't bought it already, I find the Leather Master stuff to be way superior in terms of ease of use and general pleasantness - the Leatherique stuff is STANK

+1... I have also been happy with the Gloss-It leather cleaner and conditioner.

Go the Canadian Leatherique website, it's much easier to follow than the American one. Tons of info there for you, I think you should be O.K. If you're still not sure, give Robert a call. Super guy, very personable and he'll set you straight. Here's his contact info...

They are very good. Apply with small amount, repeat this process a few time. You will know why they are still around.
