Modern Car Restoration Question from Helder Lemos

Submitted on 31/10/2016

Wanted to find if it's possible to clean and restore this hood & front seats as best as possible Not exactly quite sure what it has make it look like this way, so want to have an idea if it's possible to be imprived and smartened up. I'm located in Ingatestone, the person who recentlly had a valet service done on a Green Jaguar xk8 convertible. Had sent you photos of the hood before now have some of seats as well. Model: Saab 9-3 Convertible

Hello Helder, Although the hood is very dirty there is definitely room for improvement. Judging from the pictures I feel as though we'd make about an 85% improvement on it, of course we will strive for 100% but it seems as though a lot of that growth has been on there for a very long time and the more cleaning carried out in attempt to remove the stubborn black/green spots the risk of wear increases. It would need our machine clean and reproof service which would cost £210. In regards to your seats a clean and condition would probably only improve them marginally. I think some panels will need replacing. We know a very good car trimmer you could take it to, however it would cost somewhere between a couple of a hundred and maybe £500 depending on what you want.
