Bmw Leather RepairWe we asked to undertake a cosmetic repair to the drivers seat bolster, this Bmw seat needed a standard Bmw leather repair, the Bmw seats all start to wear on the inside back area of the bolster. This can be caused by a number of things, friction from your clothing, the seat bet catching on the leather and so on.The best way to help prevent this from happening is to apply a leather protection cream to the leather seats, this places a barrier between the seat and the wear.
The ProcessWe started by cleaning the affected area down with a strong leather cleaner, this is done to remove any dirt or debris from the area before you can start with any Bmw Leather Repairs.Once the area had been cleaned we prepared the area using leather prep which removes the manufactures finish which allows the leather fillers and dyes adhere to the leather.We now start using a wet & dry sand paper at 400 grit to rub back the whole panel, this does two jobs one is to make sure the areas you are going to repair is smooth and has not raised sections along with keying the rest of the leather for when we apply our leather dye.Our working area is now fully prepared and ready for us to start to undertake the repairs needed, we start by applying thin coats of leather filler to the damaged areas, these are dried off using a hair dry which helps the fillier cure so we can continue working. We repeat this process until the leather damage is fully filled. Now we have the leather fully repairs we apply our leather dye using our air brush insuring a nice even coats, drying between the coats using a hair dyer, once we were happy with the finish we apply three coats of matching sealent.
