After, going to the total911 ninemeister meet at Portsmouth OPC a few weeks ago and meeting forum member KJD Kev there and seeing just how nice his stone grey interior looked compared to mine, I decided I needed to clean mine, Kev told me he had got the products he used from LTT Leathercare after advise from forum member Judy who is the technical director for LTT .
So I contacted Judy and asked her what I needed which was the same as Kev had used plus a protector. So ordered the auto foam and the auto protect. Kev had kindly offered to help me do my car which roughly translated meant he was going to do it and show me Thumb
We Started by masking off half a door panel so we could see a before and after, I was amazed at the difference see photos. we then continued over all the leather in the car.
started with warm water with a mild leather shampoo using a soft nail brush the leather was scrubbed then wiped dry with a microfibre cloth the auto foam was then applied again scrubbed in with the nail brush and left for the time it takes to eat a bacon buttie Grin Grin then wiped off with a microfibre cloth, I was very pleased with the results and would not have believed I could have got my leather looking this clean and fresh.
the final job was to have another bacon buttie and then apply the protector and allow to dry.
I have some pics so you can see the finished job and the greasy dark oily leather returned back to clean matt fresh leather . Huge thanks to KJD Kev for helping (doing it) and thanks to Judy at LTT for her advise and great products , I did use the 10% discount code that she has kindly sorted for 911uk members. Thumb Thumb Another example of great advice and really helpful forum members. Thumb Thumb Thumb

Only to pleased to help Phil. You are always helping forum members with all your knowledge and information so it's nice to give something back.

It took a little time your interior was pretty dirty in places and as you said it's not been done before so that was to be expected. As a daily you interior is always going to be more difficult to keep clean over a weekend toy.

LLT products are really easy to use and give surperb results they really do clean the leather and not just mask over the dirt with a quick fix.

The only real area of wear was the side bolster the paint has worn away but I'm confident it can be repainted to get it back looking good. Judy will be able to advise on this.
Overall the condition of everything else is really good no problems at all.

Your face was a real picture when I ripped out the rear seat bases you clearly wasn't expecting that Surprised

Now you have had a "how to" you should be able to keep on top of it quite easily.

Master class on under arches next

Floor Floor Kev , I heard this rip looked round and you had my back seat in your hand , Surprised well I didn't know they came out that easy and it was just velcro'd in. shame the fronts don't come out that easy to clean.
I will attempt to keep them clean now Thumb Grin as you say very good products that are not just a smoke and mirrors fix to sell it like some of the traders use, but it actually does the job. Thumb
Thanks again for your help and the real Welsh bacon was bloody lovely. Thumb My wife wants to know why forum members keep feeding me, she knows Chris mzmimi brought me some great somerset bangers. I will have to go careful as I wouldn't want to ruin this body of Adonis and get fat Floor Floor Floor
