I think most people use 4-8 oz per application.

Just did this DIY 2 weeks ago, and this is about right.

Just ordered my 16oz kit now that it is getting warm out. Overall my leather still looks good but it is a little on the hard side in comparison to new leather, hopefully this isn't overkill.

If anything, may be too late. Leather seems to respond less and less to rejuvenation the longer you leave it neglected...

I may have over exaggerated this condition. I do look forward to giving this a stab next weekend, I'll be sure to do before/afters for this thread.

First shot at Leatherique was a failure due to a storm coming in out of nowhere, I decided to pull off the rejuvenator even though it only sat for 4 hours rather than risk having to do it in the morning. I didn't notice much of a difference and I'm having a really difficult time not having everything tacky, made two passes and will probably try a quick one in the AM.

I knew I should have saved this for a weekend project.

I applied leatherique about a couple weeks ago and I think overall the product is a B+. I applied it by hand and soaked the car. Left it sitting outside for about 24 hours. Removed with prestine clean.

It definitely cleaned up the leather and made it look "newer" but it wasn't anything miraculous. I would probably use it again, but it was a slight letdown on the finished product. I thought I applied it wrong or not enough, so I decided to do a second application of it and it turned out a little nicer. Now the prestine clean was actually a really good cleaner. I used it on the black pieces inside the car and it did a really good job of restoring some of the spots that was turning grey.

Conditioner B+
Prestine Clean A
