Leather Saver conditioner was then applied to the clean leather. This is a conditioner formulated to treat leather in good condition, but just dry.

Again, apply the product to all areas of the leather (inside and out). Allow to air dry overnight. If the leather still feels dry, a second coat can be applied.

To add a shine back to the leather, the Leather Polish was applied – again, using a soft, clean cloth.

The product will look milky white when applied.

Once dry, lightly buff the leather with a soft cloth to enhance the shine.

To protect the leather from rain and snow, a coat of Water Repellant was applied. Allow this to air dry overnight.
