Repairing "scratches" on coral red seats?

So one of my passengers must have had something abrasive on the seat of their pants while sitting in my seat this week, leaving some nasty scuffs behind right on the surface of the passenger seat.

I attached a photo of the damage. What should I use to help repair these, is there some sort of dye/treatment that will make it blend in better?

Thanks guys.

The scuffs don't look too bad... I would think any kind of leather conditioner/treatment like Lexol would take care of the scuffs reasonably well.

Swissvax offers leather repair kits and dyes...

http://www.swissvax.us/usa/leather-care.html


Someone here posted some pics of one of Swissvax leather repairs. It came out really well. I would contact some of the car care sponsors here and ask the 'experts". Or just take your car to a pro with something like this, you might do more harm than good.

Use some leather conditioner on the scratches. Give it a good treament or two and that should help.

leather master vital to soften up the material then scratch away. Cheers
