That looks fantastic to my eye. I wonder how long it will last?

It should last similar to the factory paint, or close to it. The only thing I'm worried about is the filler - wonder how it will hold. I guess we'll know soon enough.

Yes, i agree that the filler is the weak point, my experience says ~2 years.

if its 2 years, that would be too bad, I guess - this is a passenger seat that will be rarely used, so hopefully will hold up.

I did this for a friend, not my car - but I will definitely know if there are any issues. It has completely dried this morning, and looks real good.

Got the LTT foam cleaner.

Did a quick test on an old armrest which is my guinea pig to try anything on.

First impression is good. Just for the fact it’s a foam and not some creamy stuff that makes leather shiney and feeling oily.

To be continued.

Thx to Braymond for the tip.
