Excellent job - i did my leather with a kit and it came up much better. But i didn't have actual rips like yours.

Thanks Spidey ... I am well impressed with myself
They are easy jobs ... but there is the "feel good" factor when you have done something yourself as opposed to getting someone else to do it!!
Was it just a leather restore kit you got, or did you have to patch the seat?

Cheers CorkMR2
I was luck enough to come across a pair of seats at a breakers, the drivers seat was as bad as my own ... but I managed use the cover from the passenger seat and fitted it onto the drivers seat ... some bravery pills were required too cut the holes on the side of the seat for the lumbar adjustment leavers!!

Mine was just the restore kit - no patching needed.

I had thought about getting the leather re-done. But, as you said - after doing it yourself, its not factory new but you feel great about having done it yourself.
