Hap

Please see picture. I'm hoping that a good clean and re-colouring will do the trick.

Update

Will try "Colin" shortly too.

The people in Somersham put me on to a chap (Simon at Cambridge Concours) - he looked at the photo and thinks the bolster was previuosly repaired hence the colour came off on cleaning. He's quoting £150+VAT to reconolise the bolster.

Another approach is A&R Pound in Baldock. They want £80 to physically replace the leather (I guess +VAT).

Finally one other speciaist who no longer offers colouring said that someone he knew had good success with "leather balms with dye" recently, which could be a low cost "give it a try".

I'll try to upload a pic too in a sec...

I am also a fan of Colourlock, used their stuff to restore the steering on my B3. They are also great at colour matching for your seats.
