Thanks for the compliment but Im far from being a professional. I messed up on the first set of door panels and had to start all over... Let's just say that i wouldn't recommend wet-sanding.

You can pretty much use any shade of color as long as the seats are in decent shape. The main objective is to ensure that the seats are properly prepped in order to obtain the best results ( a top quality deglazer is my weapon of choice). The rest is a fairly easy process as long as you've got the right set of tools and prepping/finishing products... I havent posted a DIY but if you have any questions ill certainly try and help.

I haven't done much work on the seats yesterday but here's a couple pics of the front headrest as well as some of the products ive been using. FYI, removing the front headrest is real pain just make that the headrest is properly leveled/positioned or else it won't come off.
