Subject: Alfa Romeo 156 project
I have finally finished my project over the weekend and am 100% satisfied with the results.
I started early Friday morning by removing all the seats from the car. As the seats were all very dirty and nearly cardboard hard, after vacuuming I sprayed liberally PRESTINE CLEAN all over and hand masaged the product in the seats. Later I covered them in garbage bags and put them out in indirect sunlight for approximately 1/2 hour. After this process I removed the garbage bags and cleaned the seats with lukewarm water and a leather chamois. When this process was over the seats already looked clean. I now liberally sprayed the REJUVINATOR OIL and again masaged the product by hand into the seats. Later I covered them in garbage bags and put them out in indirect sunlight for approximately 3 hrs. After this process I removed the garbage bags and to my surprise even more dirt came up to the surface. I cleaned the seats with PRESTINE CLEAN applied with a cotton cloth and finally buffed to the shine with clean pieces of cloth.
George, as you may recall my problem at first were several scratches in the seats and the beginning of spider web cracking. I did not even need to use the dye that I bought because these 2 products alone did the trick and only in one application. I will be sending some photos to you with the results.
Thanks again for inventing such a good product.
Thank You Art, I am partial to the C4 models myslf.
Thanks Marc for the kind words. It was my dad and Mr. Peck that invented this process back in 1962. Again thank you. " The Leatherique Family"
George, your products are incredible! To make a long story short, it turned out AWESOME. Looks like new, no, better than new because the dye job was done by hand and carefully...... Bottom line, I am VERY satisfied with my results (and I think you would be too..even though this was my first time)

I want to say that I am especially impressed with the quality and finish of your dye, which perfectly matches the original color of the leather! I can tell you that the finished result (including new leather installation on the binnacle, a-pillar trim, and dashboard, as well as the aforementioned seats) passed the inspection of the most picky Lotus man I know, my mechanic Ralph Stechow of RS Motorsports. I know he uses your rejuvenator oil on cars that go thru the shop, and was impressed with the results. I want to thank you for producing such an excellent line of products, and, if my 2-cents is worth anything, please accept my endorsement, freely given, of your product, its quailty, and the results obtainable if you are serious about protecting and preserving the interior of any fine automobile. If any potential customers want to discuss the process, the results, or the quality of what you do, I would be more than happy to give them my recommendation.
Good job, guys!

Just a little note to tell you how pleased I am at how easy it was to repair my loveseat with your products. It looks like brand new!! I would recommend your company to anyone and I have already told my friends (and anyone else who would listen) how great your products are, and that your customer service went beyond all my expectations. Again my sincere thanks for all your help.

I have tried virtually every leather conditioner on the market in the search for a perfect maintenance product. Until I discovered Leatherique Rejuvenator, I thought that Lexol was the best. But Leatherique is an order of magnitude beyond Lexol. I find the experience of massaging the Leatherique into the leather to be so enjoyable that I do it monthly, even though my cars are garage kept!
As you know, the Vanden Plas interior is all leather, so the Rejuvenator was used on the front and back of the seats, the door panels and armrests, and even on those very few
pieces that are vinyl. The car came up in show winning condition. In short, I believe this to be the best leather treatment available and I have recommended it to every Jaguar owner I meet. Thanks for making a great product.

Your’re products always take FIRST PRIZE!! Clearly having followed your instructions [from memory, due to past usage] I was able within a few hours able to transform a sorry looking mess of an untidy 'Everflex' top into what it was and should have always been. After carefully cleaning it, and removing 'runs' in the 'sealer' that the dealer had put on the top on NAT57512 was clean and bare. It only took one coat with a very soft old (but very clean) brush to restore the top. Again, my most profound thanks.
Your kindness and generosity to the car fraternity are indeed boundless!

Subj: Bringing the leather back to life

I was hesitant to post this, knowing of the debate recently between
Peter Halpern and Leatherique, but since I just read Peter's note
where he made it clear he is a nice guy when he stated "I treat
people very well." I decided it would be ok to post this as MY
experience. Hi Peter, no ill will intended here....
OK, so it isn't direct Ferrari content, but it actually is. Most
Ferraris have the same type of leather as my "new" Rolls-Royce
(Connolly leather). My new Rolls had been maintained
meticulously by its previous owner's mechanic because it was the
owner's wife's car, and he didn't want it to ever strand her. He
brought it in all the time and simply said "Do whatever is
necessary, don't call and ask if it's ok."
Because of this, I have a wonderfully mechanically maintained car.
Unfortunately, although the interior (and exterior) have been kept
clean, the leather has been neglected. There are two small tears
that I am having new leather sections installed to repair. MUCH of
the rest of the leather is extremely dry and on the verge of cracking
(if it hasn't done so already).
I have a whole bunch of the Leatherique Rejuvenator Oil and
Prestine Clean leftover from when I bought it for my 308 (which
previous owner Joe Seminetta must have cared for, because the
leather in it is great, I'm just trying to keep it that way). On the
Rolls, good Lord, someone once told me they have to kill 8 cows to
install all the leather in it, and I believe it!
On Sunday, I spent a few hours applying the Rejuvenator Oil by
hand. I did one side of the dash, went to the other side, by the
time I'd done that, the first side of the dash was dry again so I had
to reapply. Three times on the dash, more than that on the seats
and rear package shelf. Door panels and rear of the front seat
required only one application. Monday night I cleaned the residue
of the oil off, which wasn't really much, the problem was simply
that the seats were dry. Some places (rear package shelf, rear
seat butt area, and entire front part of front seats) needed to be
treated again last night, the rest I cleaned with the Prestine Clean
(again by Leatherique).
When I worked with this stuff on the Ferrari, I wasn't overly
impressed. I guess it's because I didn't see a dramatic
improvement because the seats were already in great shape. But
with this experience with the Rolls, I recommend the Rejuvenator
Oil and Prestine Clean without reservation.
I'm still considering using their restoration products (crack filler,
dye, etc). I know that Peter had problems with it, but 100% of the
responses I received from the Rolls-Royce technical list that I
received (about 8 people responded) were nothing but positive.

to pass on good information from his perspective

Subject: Amazing Results!!!
I am so EXCITED, I just had to share this with you! You and your staff have
been fantastic about answering my questions and walking me through the
process. The charming lady who answers the phone made sure I had the crack
filler for the long weekend, as well as, answering a million questions. I
have never done anything like this before and I am amazed with the results.
It is a testament to your people, your company and your product. I have a
1988 Mazda RX-7 10th Anniversary Edition (1 of only 1500 made). They were
equipped with beautiful black leather seats. I was going to have them
recovered, but really wanted to retain the original seats because only the
driver's seat had some wear on the bolsters and a 3/4" split that had gone
about 1/3 the way through the leather. I followed your instructions to the
"t." This was my Thanksgiving weekend project. I went to the hardware
store Wednesday evening on my way home from work and purchased the
sandpaper, brush, and terry towels. I had previously applied rejuvnator oil
to the entire seat so I started that evening with about 1 hour worth of
work. I finished on Thanksgiving with 3 30 minute sessions. I couldn't
believe I was done! I was expecting hours and hours of work. Today,
Sunday, (48 hours + later) I put on the pristine clean. I just can't
believe the results! Please feel free to use this testimony anyway you see
fit. I have attached a composite picture that shows the before (on the
left) and the after (on the right).
Thanks For Great words and Pictures "George & Krysti"

Leatherique Just returned from a pleasant week in Fla. to celebrate mother-in-law's 94th birthday. While in Jacksonville area had opportunity to visit George Pavlisko, to pick up some Leatherique to help get brother-in-law's new Suburban's leather off to a good start. In spite of hissevere leg injuries and the difficult recovery process, George was most gracious and willing to spend a bit of time answering novice-type questions. Here's a guy who knows leather from the inside out -- it's obvious that his products work as they do because they're formulated to do what leather really needs to have done for it. No financial interest, just a very satisfied user. Thanks, George, and be back up and around soon!!!

Found a great place to all interested in giving their 928 leather some TLC. A Benz owner turned my on to a sight at www.leatherique.com. If your seats are hurting (as mine were from PO neglect) then give these people a call. Its a family bussiness thats been around for a while and leather care is all they do. I talked with a super nice lady named Krysti Pavlisko. The PO had my car out in the sun for 10 years with no window tint, was a slob, and also a heavy smoker. All this resulted in my cashmere leather being faded, hard, and yellowed with the pores filled with black S#$%! All the scrubbing and Lexol Cleaner in the world could not do anything for these seats. After using the Leatherique Rejuvinating Oil and Prestine Clean over the course of a few hours the seats have been transformed! I took some before and after shots and will need to get them developed and make them available to the list. The differance is amazing! No false advertising on their web sight. The leather is still faded (that will change soon as I am buying some of their dye) but is now much softer with zero dirt in the pores and the nasty yellow is gone. The seats have a nice creamy look to them and feel a bit softer. Can't say enough about this stuff. As a PCA member I was able to order their Rejuvinating Oil and got their Pristeen Clean conditioner and Prepping Agent (go to the sight for thier product explanation) all for the price of the oil alone. I can't wait to get the dye so I can bring the color back. Going to remove all the cashmere interior leather parts from my car so I can do a great job with the dye. Sorry to ramble on but if I find a product that lives up to it's billing I have to let people know. And I can think of no better people to tell than the 928 group. Our cars deserve it. Give Krysti Pavlisko a call and tell her that you heard about their place from me on the list. Tell her I'm the toy engineer with the 928. I told her I would give thier company exposure/praise if their products did what they claimed. They did and so I am.

Subject: Re: One Gallon Oil
I discovered your products about three years ago while searching the Internet. I had used Hide Food for years and decided to give your "Rejuvenator Oil and Pristine Cleaner" a try. I ordered a pint of each. I treated all the leather in my Ferrari 550 Maranello. I was so impressed I gave it another application which enhanced the luster of the tan leather even more. It was "Much" easier to use than Hide Food and did a better job of giving the leather a deep flat sheen that looked like new, rather than a shine. I eventually ordered some dye from you to touch up the piping on the seat that had lost it's color from getting in and out. That came out perfectly. Since then I ordered a quart and now I am ordering my second gallon of each. I am an avid car enthusiast, own several cars and have had about a dozen in the last three years. I have used Leatherique on several brands of cars and it has enhanced each and everyone. One of the guys at the Ferrari Dealership said my cars come in looking better than when I bought them. My favorite way to apply is with a 3" and 3/4" foam paint brushes. I apply a second coat a half hour later just as if your are painting, the neater you are the easier they are to clean, and the newer they will look. A day or two later I apply the Pristine Clean with a cloth covered foam pad, wipe with a damp micro fiber towel and then dry with same. I rinse out the pad and towel several times and it is surprising how much dirt comes off of clean seats. The leather will absorbed about 8 oz of oil. I do it several times a year because I know I am preserving the leather and keeping it looking new at the same time. I highly recommend this product! Thank you for making it available.
