Lee ~ T-Bi-Lee, in Switzerland just joined us this morning and in email said that he wanted to know what to use to treat his seats to keep them from tearing at the cracks. I suggested Amorall. If ya'll have any ideas regarding a really good product that might be really good to use, please post it here. Keep in mind he is located in Switzerland.. Here is a picture of his beautiful '64 Hardtop and his seats.

I would not use traditional armor all, which is a silicone based product. There are dozens of great products out there- I'm sure available in Europe- that use lanolin and other natural oils that would work far better.

I have used this leather balsam on various items. Seems to make the leather more supple so may help to prevent tearing....pleasant aroma also.Available from Amazon UK.Key ingredients are beeswax and lanolin.

Whatever quality leather products used in his country should be no problem for a Thunderbird. Certainly won't make them like new, but will clean and soften and look better.

Try to find a product line that also has a cleaner. Clean first, then treat. Use a horse hair brush (available at fine shoe stores) to massage the cleaner deep into the grain.

I agree with Steve in clean first process and then add treatment. If leather seats then Lanolin products work great.

A great product specifically developed for the restoration and care of classic leather (and maintenance of newer leathers) is leatherique.

I use it on my newer cars and have used it on older cars in the past.
