Hit a major snag but it's on the way to completion. Turns out the LeatherworldTech dye I was using was horrible. I applied nearly 10 coats on every surface and black STILL showed through, and then I ran out of the 32oz. bottle which I was told would be plenty. I called up Robert @ Leatherique Canada, and he mixed a proper bottle of Imola Red for me within the hour to pick up. The difference is HUGE. On the test sample, my old dye took 7 coats to cover original leather and looked very pale and pink. His mix was true to BMW's Imola Red with just two coats and had a perfect low-gloss sheen to it just like new leather from BMW. I should've bought from him in the first place... Should be done by Friday!

Julian, you're in luck. I actually bought a 16oz black dye repair kit including crack filler for my bolsters two years ago and still have it. If you want it, PM me and we'll talk.

Edit: Link fail.

Almost done! Just adding finishing touches in seams and hard to reach areas, and then it's gonna cure for a few days.

Agreed! I just gotta make sure the Rejuvenator/care products will still be safe to apply in the future.
