  11. Sealing A Motorcycle Seat

    Hello Elay77, I use resolene cut 50/50 with water. Then I use neutral boot wax over it. I've only made 15 solo seats so my experience is limited, but I haven't had any complaints yet... fingers crossed For the natural worn look I use 0000 steel wool. Again limited exerience but thats the best medium I have found to distress leather. Hope that helps
