    Question for you pros out there. Is it possible to get this seat to looking brand new/near brand new, i.e. eliminating/diminishing the creases along the outboard side bolsters and restoring a uniform black color? The inboard side bolster is what it should look like. If so, what would be involved?

    Removing the creases will require replacement of the weathered "leather" with new.

    Otherwise you can generally get color matched dye to repair the color issue

    +1 on above. shane does leather! saw a funny west coast customs on you tube re shrinking leather. just take towels microwave in water for 5 minutes lay out on leather till they cool and creases will lessen or vanish. they called it old school

    Keep in mind, if you're thinking about shrinking your leather, make sure it's actually many manufacturers sell their vehicles with "leather" upholstry but it is really vinyl.
