COLOUR CODE OF LEATHER ON SEATS
« on: March 17, 2020, 07:27:24 AM »
Morning guys
Would anyone happen to know what the colour code of the grey leather on standard & ED30 GTI is? I’m wanting to get some leather paint, as used this before on my Merc which has black seats and the results were amazing.

Stay safe all
Louie

Not sure of any code for it, but the color is Anthracite. When I do a search, I find none.

i ended up purchasing a full restoration kit from Colourlock. Not the the cheapest, but i spoke to a guy who'd restored his seats in a Porsche and the before and after results were amazing :congrats:

I use Saphir Creme Surfine no.15 (Dark grey) leather creme on my ED30 seats.  Perfect match and fills in the hazing perfectly  :happy2:
