Our 1998 4.6 HSE is Oxford Blue with Lightstone leather.

The seats have some wear spots and cracks that have lost color and look worse than they really are.
I am on a mission to make it look better.

Color kits on sale in the UK, that say they are matches, but the time and cost put me off, and nobody in the USA seems to offer anything.

Found a furniture kit that looks like it might work, and it arrived today.

Leather Max Complete Leather Repair kit, Beach Mix. $26.95 delivered of Amazon.

Did a quick test, and the darkest of the 3 colors, surprisingly was very close.

Will post pics later today.

My 2001 Light Stone interior was perfect except for of course the drivers seat bottom. I had a local leather guy remove the seat and put new padding and leather on it. Wasn't cheap but it's now showroom. He left me a touch up bottle of the dye he used. Apparently he mixes it custom for each application. Looking forward to seeing your pics.

As glenrad has mentioned, the only way to get a perfect match is to mix it, give the seat a proper clean, then have a look at it, those kits don’t really work, the finish is sprayed on, no dabbing on with a cloth will give a great finish.
clean and treat all seats, leather needs conditioning or it drys and cracks

So, this is the drivers seat, and arm rest, which is the worst area.

This is the kit and the contents...

The color that works best is the far left one.

Here, I did a quick test of the 3 colors...



I cleaned the leather in the previous post, with the included cleaner, and allowed it to dry.

And the results of the first test, I think were acceptable.

We are in CA, and the RR is parked outside.
The seats have been cleaned and nourished regularly, but the heat/sun takes its toll, sadly.
