Andy -

I recommend a product called Leatherique if the cracks are not too bad. They advertise in the Jaguar Journal and offer a discount to JCNA members.

The product is fairly expensive, so I suggest trying some if anyone in your area uses it; I used it for years and it really helped with surface cracks on a daily driver. (6 JCNA class championships).

dave, thanks for the suggestion, but i am pretty sure i will reupholster. once i do, i will probably use leatherique to keep the new seats in shape.

thanks again for the prompt reply
