    Default Re: Sundamage Help??

    You can't remove sun damage (fade) as its taken the pigment out of the leather. What you will have to do is re-dye the panels, which is not as hard as it sounds. You'll need appx. $ 100 worth of materials to do so, and a small snip of your leather (undamaged, usually there is a 'flag' under the seat cushion to cut off a piece). Send that sample to LeatherMagic and they will make you a dye kit, Apply several coats and dry as per the instructions and it will look good as new.
