Thought I should update this to keep everyone on the straight and arrow about Leatherique products.



As you can see, 6 months later, the Leatherique just peeled off like it was Elmers glue dried to your hand. It did grab on the corners, but still peels off in chunks EASILY. Just look at the difference!

The Furniture Clinic portion I had to dig into with my fingernail. It will come off, but only as your original leather did when subjected to sharp abuse. It doesn't peel and has amazing resistance to scratching. It even endured multiple scratches with my fingernail.

WOW! Time for some black seats I've always wanted to change the color of my back seats to black so I can get some black fronts (pole positions most likely). Great DIY!

I still personally use it, but there are some great water based products out there that I have yet to try. It is debated by many users on detailingworld as to which type is the best, but it's very evenly split.

I have good results, but I also have nice leather to work with. It's a very affordable product so it doesn't hurt to try yourself.
