Skeptical but ordered anyway, turned out the hardest part was to pick the correct color. I read the directions 3x and followed them exactly except applying the first color coat with a sponge and 4 more with an inexpensive spray gun (undiluted mix). Incredible return to function and color that I’ve (now) use for a month w/o any change. Great product that I’ll be confident in using any time I need.
I have a high end recliner, I purchased 20 years ago. I still love it I had it professional touched up and cleaned. Last time I paid $300 for the touch-up. It’s been less than a year and I noticed more wear and tear. I thought I might have to replace it. I found you on line and decided to try one last time. I am so very much impressed. I can keep my favorite chair. It looks like new again.
WOW! I’m blown away! You really have to make sure you smooth out the compound to avoid any raised areas, it took me a bit to get it how I loved it and now I can’t stop staring at the change. I have NEVER used a leather repair kit before, in fact I had no idea how to do it until I searched the web. If you’re repairing your car, you may need more than one kit, I’ll need a 2nd for the remainder of my husbands Rover. He’s active Army and doesn’t have the time to work on it like I do being at home more. It’s actually pretty fun to work with it. Enjoy!
I think this product is amazing! I had some very bad peeling leather and cracking on a portion of a leather chair that I thought was not going to be possible to repair and still have it look good. I found Magic Mender online and decided to give it a shot. I received my kit and started my repair according to the directions included. After completing the repair, I was amazed at how good it looked even though I initially didn’t match the color exactly right. I decided to send away for another color that I thought was more closer to my chair color. The second color I got was a perfect match. I applied it over the first color and it looks fantastic! I never would have thought that it would have come out looking so good. Outside of a few areas that I could have smoothed out better, you can hardly tell that it was repaired, and it looks a LOT better than it did with all the peeling and cracks that were there before the repair. This product is easy to use, dries fast, and it works great! The hardest part in all of this was finding the right matching color. The only suggestion I would make is to offer some sample dyes (grouped by similar colors) to help with finding a good color match.
I wanted to take the time to say thank you for developing a product that is so easy to apply and the results are simply amazing!
My Magic Mender story started about four years ago when I needed to re-color some of the interior on my 2007 Porsche convertible. I bought it used and the dashboard and seats looked faded. Porsche said there was nothing that could be done to revive the interior. Well, they were wrong! I searched and found your website, ordered the color flex from your easy to follow guide. My car looks brand new after applying your product. The color matched perfectly, too. I brought it to the Porsche Dealership and showed them the interior. They were astonished how well it blended in with the rest of the interior.
Last month I borrowed my brother’s 1999 Benz. Since I had the car for a while, I detailed it and discovered how badly the seats had faded and their dog had put many scratches in the leather. Magic Mender to the rescue, again! The interior looks brand new, and my brother thought I had the seats re-upholstered. He was shocked when I told him about the product and spent $26.00.
Onto the tough job.
We have three leather Natuzzi brand matching couches in our family room that we purchased 21 years ago. The couches were in great mechanical condition, but with six of us sitting on them for so long, they looked absolutely terrible. We spend approximately $7,000.00 back then for the couches. My wife thought it would be best to replace the couches. I mentioned your product and she was skeptical that it could help them in the condition they were in (many scratches, scuffs and fading).
I sent a sample of the leather to Magic Mender and crossed my fingers that they could help. I received an actual call-back and they matched it to the interior color from an older BMW color, who would have thought! After prepping and coloring the seat bottoms and arm rests, our couches look BRAND NEW. The entire process took about eight hours because I applied five coats of the product. As usual, I followed the simply directions and used a hair dryer to speed things up. Thank you for saving me many thousands of dollars in not having to purchase a new set of couches, very thankful. My wife is amazed how new and fresh they look. This project cost us about $140.00. Not a bad return of investment!
I bought the Leather & Vinyl Repair Kit to use on the front seats of my 2007 Toyota Avalon. They were really showing their age, especially the drivers seat. I was skeptical about using the product but took the plunge and ordered the kit. What a difference!! They now look like brand new seats. The color match was right on the money. Take your time, follow the instructions and you can’t go wrong. Don’t worry about streaks when the color flex is still wet! I used 3 coats and when it dried the seats looked great. Can’t say enough about the huge difference this product makes. Buy the kit. You won’t regret it.
Tried others and was hesitant to try this one, but I am sure glad I did. Ordered 2 kits, one for a 2008 Dodge Ram in Khaki and one for a 2004 Concorde in Taupe. Best and easiest product EVER. Just make sure you really clean it first with the alcohol and then just smear it on. Wow. A little hole that had just rubbed in to the Ram was covered with a bit of the repair materials and nobody can ell where it was. Best stuff ever. We are thinking of offering this as an extra option in our detail shop.
