What do you guys use to make your black leather seats black again?

Years ago on this forum someone did a small group buy on some dye that came in a small bottle (fruit shoot bottle if I remember) and it was amazing (just rubbed it in and let it dry).

Thanks, Mr C

Over the years I have always used ‘Liquidleather’ Gliptone products and found them to be brilliant. Won’t need them an6more as my coupe has cloth seats.

I'm also a fan of Gliptone and is what i've used for years.

What I'm looking for is some black bye/polish to work on a couple of marks on the leather as Gliptone cleans, conditions and feeds the leather but doesn't add colour.

Ah! I see. There is a plethora of black dye kits on the market, but colourlock kits seems to be popular. I remember watching a video about how a leather seat was sanded down & professionally brought back to colour again, looked brand new.

I'm going to try some 'Colourlock' dye on my BMW seats this weekend, so will let you know if it's any good.

Gliptone- ‘fiat coupe recaro black’ is the colour I think

I ended up changing the brakes on the missus Mazda instead Jim.
I'm hoping to have a go at the seats on Saturday so will report back then cool
