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.

Full Detail Writeup:

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

Incredible! What if you just have the standard Black Novillo? Will it still require a custom order? Seems like they'd stock black.

They have 27 Standard colors, but if you want a Perfect match it must me made per order. The leather type also makes a difference.

Dom,

What do you think about the Swissvax line of leather products? I think I want to slowly take the plunge into a lot of the swissvax stuff.

I was deciding between trying Swissvax and leather master. Your opinion is much appreciated.
