    Leather + Sun = :(

    The leather seats in my car are gettin sun-baked. Its all discolored and stuff. Is there any way to "re-color" the leather or is it screwed?

    Maybe you should tint the windows? I know it won't reverse the problem, but it would stop it from getting worse.

    Re: Leather + Sun = :(

    theres a special tint i think called "UV protection"?. what it does is reflect the sunrays comming thru the windows. great for leather interior ppl and ppl who live in heated areas. it may be pricey but i think its well worthed it if you want to keep ur leather clean.

    so if you plan to tint, i suggest the UV layer along with the tint if you have the bones

    Might be a ur leather is crappy... or ur leather seating is old..which could cause discoloration. If you can't afford tint, get the sunvisor blocker thing that u open up behind ur windshield to block the sun.
