Default Q: Dye for 2005-07 S281 interior?

Does anyone know where we can get dye that matches our interior seats to cover scratches in the leather? I hate to blame her but the bling on my girls jeans scratched her seat

I'm not that familiar with using dyes, but I would consult with a good upholstery shop or a restoration/repair specialist.

If you want to do it yourself, check out a company called Leatherique.

Hopefully someone else will have some first-hand experience with what you're attempting.

Keep in mind that leather has a finish, and it's tough to re-create that.

Not sure what direction you want to go in but you can check out some products from SEM. They have all kinds of matching colors for interiors.

www.colorplus.com I met these people at their booth at last years AACA Hershey Fall Meet. I was impressed with the samples that they had done on seats. You can send them a small sample and they will match the color. They also have different gloss levels available.
