    Worn Bolster?

    I had the leather on my M Roadster driver's seat bolster re-dyed last week. I took it to Chuck Roddy at Leather Medic (301.869.6770 or croddy@leathermedic.com). Chuck did a super job. He custom-matched the color and applied it with an air-brush, used a heat gun to tighten-up the leather and took out the wrinkles, and then applied a top coat that brought back the OEM sheen to the leather. My bolster is Estoril Blue ... he matched that perfectly, so I'm sure he can do any color. The seat looks brand new. He travels throughout the DC area. I took the seat to his shop in Rockvlille and he gave me a discount ... charged me $90.

    Would you happen to know if he works on Leatherette as well as leather components, I've got a rip in my leatherette that's needs a mend. Happy Motoring...

    I'm not sure, Zchild. Recommend sending Chuck Roddy an e-mail... Good Luck!
