I have seen guys say that theirs peeled after a couple of years and ive seen guys who say its still perfect after a couple of years so i guess it comes down to how well you prep and follow the directions. Time will tell. But if you get the big bottle kit you could redo your whole interior probably 3 times with that kit.

Nice work Jerry Problem is, you will now see how bad the rest of the interior looks, by comparison, and end up doing the whole lot. Must admit it was a very satisfying, if time consuming, job to do when I tackled it. Mind you, you know my views on the long term results ... full re-trim due on 19th October

If you ever lose your day job... I think you have a new skill you can fall back on.

What issues are you having "long term" ? What is long term and do you have photos?

Well, it wasn't that long term. The high contact surfaces polished up very quickly, looking like plastic, seat surface started to crack etc. . I spent a full month doing all that Jerry did, holding the mantra that prep. is the key. Stripped, sanded, nourished, crack filled etc. . Looked great when first done, just like Jerry's car and I was very impressed and posted a full, glowing write up on here. Updated that later with the 6 month ( 2,000 mile ) results. I think part of it may be the finishing product. Chemical based colours seem to work better than the water based, which I used. Having said that, my friend's car that had a full, professional re-colour in black 3 years ago lasted longer, but is now also starting to crack/flake.

You pays your money and takes you choice. IMO, re-dying is cheap and makes a good short term solution to worn leather, but I am keeping my 964 'til I can't drive it any longer or drop dead, so a full re-trim it is. Chance to replace the warped dash, dump the back seats and put in RS trim. My fat C4 needs a diet

Great job Jerry. Do you have a full leather interior or in other words can it be applied to the vinyl sections?
