    W124 cream leather interior..

    thanks Nick So in theory... i should do the bulk of the seats not the vented seating area? I have enough to do the full interior front seats passengers would there not be a colour difference between seats and door panels Should I then just leave the ruched cards alone and just clean? thanks
