After 23 years of ingress and egress and likely not a lot of TLC given to the interior of my Diablo I got the name of an automotive interior repair/restoration specialist that services one of the big auto groups here in Houston. After coming to my house to give the car a once over, we scheduled a separate day to get the work done. Seat bolster, cushion and piping cracks and scuffs. A horribly shiny steering wheel from decades of hand oils. It was far from pretty.
After cleaning with a solvent, he repaired what he could and redyed the damaged areas with a water-based dye. Other than the remarkable results, it was also convenient. Didn't have to take time to drop it off at a shop. All in about 2 hours and he did it all out of the back of his rig and in my garage. Pretty amazing stuff. Some before and after pics:
