    Default Making my black leather black again.

    The door panels on my car are looking decidedly scuffed and a little pale in places.

    Any suggestions as to what's the best way of restoring them to their former blackness?

    Also the edge of my driver's seat is looking quite scuffed. Isead on tah too would be most appreciated.

    Verdi's (and others no doubt) can reconnolise that for you.

    The black can probably be fixed by yourself by any number of off the shelf products.

    I'm no expert but the leather on one of my seats is a little worn too, looks like it's from the seatbelt. I was thinking of buying some leather restorer from here http://www.morethanpolish.com/mtp/swissol.asp

    Not sure how well it works but may be worth a try initially, and the black is obviously an easy colour to match. Someone here probably has more knowledge on this than me though.

    The bolster on the black seats of my 355 was worn and discoloured, so I used the stuff my missus does the kids shoes with, scuff kote, I think it is. Cant afford woolies or liquid leather see...

    It is quite an effective quick fix tho' Stiggleton
