Many years ago on a previous motorcar, I attempted to repair my leather seats by using a leather repair kit that was advertised on TV. It was a disaster, so I paid an awful lot of my hard earned money on getting the whole lot reupholstered. That was okay then because my previous car won a prize in a Concours d’Elegance for the best car in regular use. This time around I thought I’d try it again on my 1982 Rolls-Royce Silver Spur; after all 20 years has passed and surely someone would have produced a better product? They have. After searching for reviews via Google, a product called Magic Mender http://www.leatherrepairkits.com/ kept coming up so I thought I’d give it a try. I specifically wanted to keep the original leather because the rest of the upholstery is in good condition Also, as a member of the Rolls-Royce Owners’ Club of Australia (Victoria Branch) and in charge of the Technical Section of the branch, it would almost be my duty to repair it myself If your leather is a bit careworn, why not have a go yourself? I found the whole exercise quite therapeutic On another note; if you own a Rolls-Royce or Bentley, thinking of buying one or simply an admirer of the marque Why not join us?
