Hi All,

I have just discovered that there is some paint on the drivers leather seat :(

Anyone know any tips of how to remove it? It's gloss paint which is worse.

You're going to need some kind of spirit to remove gloss but start by trying a baby wipe as they usually contain a small amount of paraffin.

Otherwise you'll need some white or methylated spirit on a cloth.

I don't think that'd hurt the leather too much but maybe follow up by washing with some soapy water and then use some leather conditioner.
