|Car: Rolls Royce Silver Shadow|
Job: Change the colour of full interior from red to cream. This includes 2 front seats, bench seat, door cards, centre consul, dash and all other bits of leather trim.
Process: Rub the seats down with the leather prep and abrasive pad to remove cracked and creased areas. Wipe down with alcohol cleaner to degrease and make ready for colour. Apply 3 sponge coats of colour as the colour change (red to cream) is quite drastic. Then a final spray on coat for an even and uniform colour. Then seal and finish.
Kit: Extra Large Colourant Kit (Cream, Matt).
Job: Change the colour of the entire interior from a tan & cream combination to a much paler cream. The full interior is done including front & back seats, steering wheel, centre consul, dash board, roof lining, gear stick & hand break.
Process: Prepare the seats with the prep & alcohol cleaner. Sponge on 3 coats of colour to get a brilliant base covering, then spray a coat on for a uniform colour. Seal and then finish in matt.

|Car: Rover P5|
Job: Change the colour of two front seats to match the rest of the interior. These ivory seats were bought as a replacement for the old red ones, which were a wreck. The colour was changed so that they matched the rest of the interior.
Process: Prep & alcohol clean the leather. This softens the leather as it removes the hard and brittle top coat. As the colour change is fairly easy, 2 coats of colour are sponged on followed by a third with an airbrush. The leather is then sealed and finished in satin.

|Car: Aston Martin DB2/4|
Job: Change the colour of the whole car interior from magnolia to tan. This includes all seats, door cards, dash, leather carpet trim, and all other pieces of leather in the car.
Process: Prep & alcohol clean the leather. The leather had been re-trimmed and so wasn't in that bad of condition since it is a 50 year old car! Two base coats of colour and two spray on coats were required for an even finish. The leather is then sealed and finished in satin.
