Paint doesn't want to let any leather treatment thru.

Dref wondered, but these are indeed painted leather seats, kind of plasticized top coating, and it seems to be near impervious to most leather treatments.

I had 900 seat skins off once and re-sewed the seams, and at the same time treated the leather from the back side, and that did indeed seem to soften it nicely, almost too much. I also wetted the skins down just before reinstalling them. Fit nicely, looked pretty good after, but it was a lot of work. And on tan seats, the worn places, where coating has worn through and pores are showing etc., will never clean up and look new, unless repainted by a leather seat pro, or maybe a good amateur job. Not the SEM spray bombs.
