My recent purchase of a rag top Audi 80 had a lovely presented full leather interior in cream only to find out that the renovation was a real poor quality job with overspray on the seat frames and on plenty other bits. The bad thing is that who ever re-pigmented the seats painted over muck and left crease folds uncoloured in not just one wrong colour shades but two. Only thing I can do is strip the colour off all four seats, backs, door cards and plastic surrounds, (what a job!!)
Has anyone done anything similar as to recomend a quick strip method?

That's an interesting product, I'll have a look into that. In the meantime I still need to strip the leather to its basic natural state from all its aftermarket coatings
