    Are you able to keep the stitching silver or does it blend in with the dye?

    If you use a brush [instead of spraying,] the stitching will remain "as-is" (as long as you don't get too close to it with a really "wet" brush.) That's one of the reasons I prefer Leatherique over spraying SEM.

    I first use a small brush around the stitching, you can see the technique here:

    Armrest on the left has one complete coat of dye, the one on the left wasn't re-dyed yet:

    Upper panel restoration

    This past weekend I completed most of the interior re-dye, and restoration/repair of the upper door panels and rear "speaker panels."
