You'd be surprised, but I painted the seats with a special spray paint for leather. Its called 'Landau Black.' Holding the can about 18 inches from the seats, and gently misting a very light coat restored the seats beautifully. It dries within 10 minutes. The paint has an elasticity to it and allows the leather to breathe, so there's no hardening of the leather. It was a perfect match for a pair of cracking '93 black seats.
Quick and inexpensive (<$20) and best of all, no worries for stains on the pants!!!
