The bolster of a car is a high wear area. Therefore Leather bolster repair is one of the most common repairs. Due to it being a high wear area small amounts of colour loss and damage should be repaired while it is just that in Norfolk Bolster repairs service. Otherwise the area will continue to wear down until it is torn and beyond repair.
Norfolk leather repairs undertake bolster repairs at your home or workplace. Wherever the vehicle is situated. Repairs do require power but our technicians carry extension leads.
Firstly in order to repair colour loss on a bolster the Leather Bolster Norfolk, UK will clean the area of repair. This is done using a lint free cloth and leather cleaner. The area is wiped over multiple times each using a clean piece of cloth to ensure all dirt is removed. Using the same cloth to clean over will just carry the dirt from one place to another and defeats the object of cleaning.
Secondly the technician uses a clean piece of lint free cloth and leather prep to prep the area of damage. This removes the manufacturers costing and any debris left on the leather.
After the area has been thoroughly cleaned and prepped the technician mixes the colour of the leather. Next a base coat is required. Technician uses another lint free cloth to apply a base coat this helps to create better adhesion for the repair. Once this is done it’s time to use sam air compressor to spray the leather dye over the area. Using the air compressor ensures an even finish as typically when using a cloth to rub the dye in your able to see the swirl marks from where the dye is rubbed in a circular motion.
Leather dye is applied in thin even coats. Each of these is dried using a hair dryer before applying the next. Now a sufficient number of coats have been applied leaving the repair leaving the repair looking good the lacquer can be applied. Please note that every repair is different therefore there is not a standard number of coats a repair might require. It is all depending on how the repair goes.
Similarly to Leather Dye Removal lacquer is applied using the air compressor. This is a top coat applied to the repair to seal and protect it.
