Updates from last night... Started to use the prep agent with scotch brite pad. Cleaned with damped cloth and dried with cloth and my wife's sooopah hair dryer! LOL! Once the pieces were dry, I started to assemble the HVLP Spray Station that I bought from Lowes. It worked great and I am impressed with the way it performed. Poured the dye in the can and mixed it with a little bit of bottled water to thin the dye a little. Then I started to spray the pieces. I plan to let them sit until sunday and I will sand down the pieces with 1000 grit and then hit them again with the final dye coat. Texture is great once the dye is dry. Leather grain still shows and looks very OEMish....
