Cool Reconditioning Old Leather

As some of you know, I purchased one of Ray Newton's early Pteazer projects to convert into a panel van.
The second owner had her in the Cali Desert for a number of years, and she was showing that.

So today I finally got around to cleaning, leather balming, and conditioning the leather seats in the front.
I purchased the Black Leather Balm on-line. (picture below)
Before I started, I used Adam's Leather Cleaner. Yes, they were dirty too.

Then, I rubbed on generous amounts of the black leather balm, especially in the discolored creases, and a bunch of heavy scratches of the left driver's side arm bolster.

Afterwards, Adam's Leather Conditioner.
(You can see in the photos where I missed a spot or two with the conditioner afterwards.)

The photos really do not do the leather balm justice, a the camera, and especially the flash reflects light from the edges of any scratches.
To the naked eye, there is a great improvement, especially in the creases in the leather where the color was lost.
So, Overall, I am very pleased with the results of the Leather Balm.
