Default Dying my Russell Seat

Hi all,

About a year or so back, I bought a used Russell Saddle (rider and passenger) from a buddy who was approximately my same height and weight.

The seat works great for me but, it's light grey and it has some stains on the passenger seat.

I thought I was going to have to just put up with it but, then I found a cool product that will enable me to dye the seat and refurbish/rejuvenate it.

It's called, "Leatherique" and you can see their web site here:

http://www.leatherique.com/do_it_you...e_leather.html

I plan to dye my seats black and hope that the process will rejuvenate the rear seat and cover up the stains (I think they're due to rust).

This will be a great little winter project. I'll take some pictures as I go and let you know how it works out.

Yep, my riding pants are black. But, supposedly, once it cures and dries, it doesn't transfer or bleed.

I hope...
