how easy is it to get a close colour match.

and how long is a repair likely to last? I touched up one of my bolsters which looked great, but it has worn back in 6months

What product did you use for the repairs on the bolster?

Colour matches can be done if you have a sample or let us know the make of the car and we will see if we have the colour reference.

Touch up repairs are only done on small areas and for these the touch up pens are ideal but this would not be suitable for a larger area or whole bolster so it very much depends on the size of the problem. The adhesion properties of these is really good but as bolsters take a great deal of wear a top finish can always be added to give a harder wearing surface if you want.
Colour matches are always done on relatively new leather (usually taken from an unused area of the leather) and as you are always putting new colour on worn/older areas the colour match is often a problem. Repairs should be done with the least amount of product possible as the more you add the worse it can get but with these pens the idea is that the colour is very intense and the amount of product applied is very small so the best results should be possible.

Let me know if we can help.

Cheers
Judy

Well impressed with this product, as far as the automotive pens go, will you be producing Range Rover Lightstone?
I can see a couple that are close to it already, Cream and Porcelain but not sure

Will be looking into the RR colours but not immediately. If there is a close enough colour it may be worth a try as the amount applied will be so minimal.

Judy,

The drivers seat bolster on my MK5 VW Golf is wearing and discolouring (see photos below). As it's in a pretty rare beigh leather colour, would you do a pen that a pretty good match and would this help ?

Looks ace - I'll be getting one of these I think for the seats on my mk5 Golf GTI (grey coloured).

The repair on my jaguar looked similar to this before i touched it up. It was a little larger but in the same area on the seam
