    Leather Restoration?

    Hey everybody.

    I'm currently trying to sell a 1995 Caddy I've had for a while and everything about the car is perfect (runs great, nothing is broken or dinged up, etc) but the interior is also all leather. Over time it seems to have been scratched by people sitting in the seats. And while I've had no "cracking" or tears, the scratches don't look very good and I don't want that to hurt the selling value.

    So I was wondering if anybody has any experience with leather upholstery and could offer some advice on how best to go about fixing it. Thanks!

    Not having done this myself I would strongly consider having a tanner look at them locally. They may decide to even the surface out and then tan it over again; I don't know -- but they will and they'll probably do it right. It may not be a hard DIY but if you don't want to get it wrong.
    The world breaks everyone and afterward many are strong in the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry. Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms, 1929
