Installing baby seat on leather upholstery

I have/had this exact seat (now in the garage)

I use a Spear and Jackson 5L pump sprayer - it's sitting, ready to go - can go around the car in 3 mins. I dilute 200-250ml of TFR in 5L of water.

Coating diamond cut does help, but they all corrode eventually. When you coat them, it helps to remove the centre caps as well.

It looks great, nice deep black look. Just too shiny for me in the sun. 303 doesnít attract dust, plus you can use it on your door rubber seals as well.

When I used Perl, it attracted dust like a magnet, very strange. Didnít get on with it.

Awesome on tyres and trim though.

The reason that some EU countries have mandatory winter tyres, is because they have months of winter/snow and we don't. We have weeks, and often, no snow at all. Plus they have mountain passes,...

Will it have a particular scent, or is it just the colour change?

You can add some Koch Chemie GreenStar to your foam mix - start with 25ml in a 1L bottle of foam mix and then try 50ml. If you have another APC, that should also work.
