Are your car's leather seats showing signs of wear? There's a solution to that!

It's called Swissvax Leather Healer.

This product is specially mixed to match the exact color of the factory leather at the swissvax factory. Each bottle takes 3-4 weeks to receive from Switzerland.

We applied it to the Coral red Boston leather found in this BMW 135i we recently detailed.

The application process is pretty simple, and leaves the seats looking new!

See for yourself...

Products Used:

Swissvax Leather Cleaner
Swissvax Leather Brush
Swissvax Leather Grinding Pad
Swissvax Leather Healer
Swissvax Leather Glaze (Leather Sealant)

Here's how the seat looked before:



First we cleaned the surface to be treated and grinded the frayed leather using the grinding pad. then applied the Leather Healer. We ended up applying about 5 coats with about 30 min between each coat.






And the finished result!




Thanks for looking!

Dom

As always, Nice job Dom! Looks much better than the sprayed on dye jobs out there. I'm still surprised a 135 already has the bolster look like that though. Someone needs to give the owner some entry & exit instructions but then again, it's probably better for (your) biz if they didn't...lol

Did you use the leather benzine as suggested on the Swissvax website?
Also, the standard colors are kinda hard to decipher, is it better to do a special color code instead?I'd hate to spend a hundred bucks on this and it not match perfectly.

No i did not use the leather benzine.

I think the best idea is to go ahead and give the office at Swissvax USA a call and have them place an order for you to perfectly match your color.

I'm not sure on that, your best bet is to go ahead and give Swissvax USA a call, and they can help you get the perfect match.
