noticed a good scratch in my back seat today
Was cleaning my windows and i noticed a nice about 4 in scratch going down the back of my seat. I was wearing sweats and a t and had the cleaner and a rag so it was there. Can an interior shop buff that stuff out or will i have to live with it. I am almost ocd and it just eats me up. Will post a pic soon

How deep is the scratch? Is it just a surface scratch, or are we talking about a knife-like deep split?

I heard that there are a special paint for auto leather, which may help to repair all types of scratches... the seats look like new after painting!

the scratches on rear seat looks like someone dragged their nail across from it. (maybe from someone pants)

Yes, there are spray dyes, but you need to match the color. Check with your local dealer or high-end used car dealers to see who they use to touch up the interiors of their cars.

Hard to see in the pics because of light/flash and tan interior but it sucks :(

hmmm, if its real leather and not leatherette you should be able to get some leather cleaner that comes in a cream and rub it out.

Its real leather, i have zymol and it doesnt take it out. what would you recommend to get it out? or could a detail shop take care of it.
