Leather Restoration Question from David Gain

Submitted on 04/09/2010

This tear is in the inner corner of the left rear passenger seat. The back seats don't get a lot of use so I'm more interested in making it asthletically pleasing than super durable. Model: Lexus IS200 Sport


I would think a good car trimmer could put you a new piece of leather in that seat to replace the riped piece. It look like an easy job as the rear base is usually the easiest seat to remove, plus because its so small and black, it should be easy to match. I would hope to think that most trimmers would have an off cut for that job.

I would have thought an hour or two would do the job.

Have a look at the links below including the showcase. Then if there isn't a trimmer in your area, then have a read of the auto trader article.
