    restoring leather shine

    whoever owned this car before me never heard of leather conditioner...can any one recomend a really REALLY intense compound that will restore the luster in my leather? The doors and dash look a bit faded and the seats are kinda "flat" not shiney...i want the thing to look like someone emptied a barrel of clearcoat on the interior

    My current Camaro was the same way when I got it, real dry leather. I bought a $5 bottle of Meguiars conditioner and just conditioned them 2-3 a week for a few weeks until they softened up. I was also using the Z9 & Z10 during the same time period, but they softened up real fast. They are as good as the leather was in my old vert now

    Follow the instructions on the leatherique application. It's a bit messy to apply, but at the end, you'll like the results

    well, i'm not really pleased at all with the Leatherique stuff. I followed the managery of instructions, took 2-days to complete and I still hate the leather, and NOW THE SMELL!!!!

    i aggree, the leather is softer now, but it just isn't BLACK it's almost charcoal?? But I looked up the VIN and it says i have ebony interior...i'm really pissed at the previous owner right now
