    Leather Seat Scuffs

    The seats on my 2001 S Type are in pretty good condition, because it's a very low mileage car. I've started cleaning them with some Autoglym leather cleaner which seems to shift what lightly ingrained dirt there is. The only thing that needs sorting is the drivers seat which is scuffed (as shown in the picture). Furniture Clinic do a leather repair paint so I was thinking of using that on the scuff and then applying something like Connolly Hide Care to the whole lot. Does that sound like a reasonable plan, or are there other products that I should be using? Any suggestions welcome as it's been 20 years since I last had a car with a leather interior!

    The Furniture Clinic product is an all in repair procedure, no need for anything else when completed.
    Jim.
    2012 XKR Black pack, Speed Pack, Aero pack, Rat pack. Past:-87'XJS 3.6L, 93'XJ40 3.2L gold, 95'XJ6 4.0L sport, 00'XJ8 3.2L sport, 2005 XK8 4.2L coupe, 2009 XK 5.0L Portfolio in that order and enjoyed all of 'em.

    I do not offer advice, I only say what I would do with the set of circumstances presented. Your choice always.

    I just used a Furniture Clinic kit to restore my red Cranberry leather and paid the extra £5 to have the leather balm colour coded, it has brought back wear and minor scratches up really well so highly recommend it. Also the protector you can use after is great and you may be surprised how much you need, I soon got through a 125ml bottle and have just purchased a 1L one.
    Standard, 2007 X type 2.0D S. British racing green.
    Project, 2003 X type 3.0 V6 Indianapolis. Ultraviolet.

    Hi I've used Ruskins leather care for years . It does wonders for old tired leather and puts the smell back . It dries well and doesn't leave a super glossy finish it drys slightly Matt and then you just buff it up . Best I've used .i still try new stuff ,
    but always go back to Ruskins . It's a totally natural product . It's out of stock on Amazon at the moment ,but well worth the wait .
