  1. I think I have 3 sections each about 4-5" where seam is opened.. both upper side seams where leather meets side to front. And one side of the middle seat inset where side design meets middle design.. that I did 2 days ago with my knee.. oops! Oddly the front upper back rest and rear seat are like new.. soft and in fine shape.. the lower front seats are dry in the center areas of each side. Parts under knees and side bolsters seems much softer n okay . Since it's a biscuit tufted style, I wonder if I could just match up leather n piece it in where dry or cracked leather is? I like the character in the rest...love to keep it!
  2. Send some pic's, details, colors, price.. open to condition, but prefer solid decent..lmk where the car is too
  3. Guys it's all leather.BTW Thanks some great information and products. So now which leather product rejuvenates old leather best?? Now to find a worthy person to do the stitching or learn how to.use that thingie.. I do recall back in the day that these things happened then too. Including some of the old vinyls would get very brittle in the winter months. One knees worth of pressure and things split instantly!
  4. the metal on mine is cracked.. dont want to risk welding it..LMK what you have n the price
  5. My leather is good and Im trying to preserve it but the thread in seams is breaking with any pressure applied .. Can a good upholsterer restitch it? anyone done this successfully?

  11. Thanks..Never heard of them .. where is it sold? Do they make a dye?
  12. I used it after I saddle soaped the seats to clean them, then used Neats foot oil.. I saved 2 original 53 Eldo interiors that way it takes time and care, but can work. It worked great for me. Most guys just buy new leather which has a completely different feel than those leathers of the 50,60s. It's like making a mens coat out of chiffon . It wont hold the shape you need. So without custom tanning and finishing the hides to match what I have, I'd rather simply clean n respray what I have. Besides few interior guys can do work on more elaborate interiors of that time and get them to look factory.
  13. Thank you. The type of leather I have isnt soft it's more firm, appreciate the help but interior is light colored n needs painting. We did it all the time on light colored Rolls interiors.
