Hi gents, I think it´s time I share something in exchange for all the fun and knowledge I get from all you fellow VLJ members. I´ve been doing some experiments with Eco-Flo from Tandy leather Factory. First step is to strip the entire jacket from the old finish to expose the leather. I used acetone and lots of rubbing. Do this in a very well ventilated place, upwind and well protected from fumes. Once stripped the jacket looks like this: Next you take the dye, thinn it with some water (dye is water based) and using a brush start to apply it. I used Bison Brown which is quite a dark brown: Moment of panic: It takes two hands for proper covering. When finished I applied a generous amount of "Satin Shene" conditioner (also from Eco-Flo) And that is about it. The results are spectacular, with a beautiful finish that shows the grain and will look much better over time when as a result of use starts to rub off and show the leather tones under. Overall it is a simple procedure you can confidently do yourself and will give a whole new life to your jacket. Enjoy!!!
