A stitch in time...saves nine, I meant to get to this for a hood while, got some leather filler from some lad on ebay.pl Poland, its good stuff from what I can see, flexible and ideal for hard worked areas...not sure longetivity but its worked ok so far.

Tub says to use a hairdryer between layers (I needed several) but I used this fine weather to dry and kept going over it over the last few days - its not 100% but its a 1000000% better

First Layer:

The filler is 15ml heavy black filler for ebay seller: leatherclinic

(he has most colours available)

You've done so far best amateur job in leather filling that I have seen. I haven't done it myself, but one of my buddies where filling something similar like yours few weeks back on cream leather. To be honest didn't look great.
Will paint the leather as well? I know that there is option to sand down old leather colour and apply new one and the coat it with lacquer for protection. In the end it looks like leather from the middle of your seat.

Cheers man, yeah I've dyed the leather as well,using grison furnitue dye (black) lasted a good while but topped it up again, got it on ebay as well and theres tons in the pot you'd never go through it

Cheers to Currran from detailingshed.com for dropping me up a snowfoam lance and fedw other bits and pieces, car was destroyed with tree sap, but I couldn't resist trying out the lance, I hosed it down afterwards but didn't give it a proper wash as it was far too warm and I wasn't feeling it

The snowfoam stripped all the tree sap anyway - impresed with it so far

Haven't taken photos of the car in a long long time - so I thought I'd take a few in unfamiliar surroundings...and a chance to dick around with a DSLR

I washed the car for the first time in probably 5 months :o - it was filthy - gave it a coat of CG blacklight and of course being Ireland it started to drizzle before I could buff it off fully -

- In fairness the colur really stands out today - Probably get another coat of blacklight and the some cg7

These were taken yesterday

Calling it very clean is an understatement, i need to wash mine too.

Try imgur.com for image hosting, im using it now and it seems to be easier than imageshack to use.
Im disappointed with imageshack.

....and 3 years on I thought Id revisit this thread :cool:

I see the imageshack images are no more which is disappointing. What Im about to upload is akin to abuse of a car - please don't call the ISPC[Cars]

So long story short - bought house 2.5 years ago, 2 dogs, wedding, etc.. life got in the way, car went to bottom of list.....until now

The Befores............NSFW!!! - considering its not been properly washed in over a year it should be a lot worse, but not a high point for me after all the effort that went into her
