Paint doesn't want to let any leather treatment thru. - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Dref wondered, but these are indeed painted leather seats, kind of plasticized top coating, and it seems to be near impervious to most leather treatments.
I had 900 seat skins off once and re-sewed the seams, and at the same time treated the leather from the back side, and that did indeed seem to soften it nicely, almost too much. I also wetted the skins down just before reinstalling them. Fit nicely, looked pretty good after, but it was a lot of work. And on tan seats, the worn places, where coating has worn through and pores are showing etc., will never clean up and look new, unless repainted by a leather seat pro, or maybe a good amateur job. Not the SEM spray bombs.
