welcome

the club runs several tutorials on leather and interior repairs each year, but they may be a bit of a trek for you to attend , but it does also depend on the repair required,

if a simple recolour and finish , then you can buy DIY kits that do a very good job , if its more involved then you may need to take it to someone, and will cost around £100 ,

but sorry , i'm not from your part of the world...

Furniture Clinic advertise in the club magazine (page 66), it is a franchise and there are different people in different areas who work on leather.

Our local JEC club had a presentation from a local couple and I bought and used some cleaner and sealer for our car and was impressed. This couple had been involved with restoring the seats in a Lancaster bomber and restored as much as they could rather than replace.

It would be worth your time to call the head office to find your local representative.
