I prefer Interior Detailer for door panels, too. But I'm now wondering if the new Leather Conditioner formula will be any different. Time and feedback will tell!

Just used the leather conditioner in my fiances car last week.. smelled like real true leather to me after I applied it! The smell actually lasted two or three days and then the cars plastic interior took back over. Definitely smells like leather to me though and not a waterhose

Mine has a great leather smell. I use on both cars with no issues, it really brings out the leather in my opinion.

I unfortunately had the same result wasn’t sure if it was just me. I applied the leather conditioner and in a couple days there was light spots in areas that I hadn’t touched. So I wasn’t sure if I had to apply it a few times before it took. I’ll keep using it and see if there are any changes. It looks great when I first apply it but after a couple days I get the light spots.

I did my first detail on my new truck about a week and a half ago.  I used Adam's interior cleaner on everything even though it was a brand new truck.  I was amazed at how much cleaner the interior looked just after using the cleaner, again, this is a brand new truck with less than 400 miles on it. 

 

After cleaning the entire interior I used Adam's leather conditioner on the seats, dash, and door panels just as the video shows and the results are nothing short of amazing!!!  Just at a week and a half now since doing the interior the nice new leather smell is still there and all the door panels and dash look amazing!  The key may be using the Adam's interior cleaner prior to applying the leather conditioner and letting it dry as mentioned in order to avoid any streaking or product coming off. 

 

As a comparison I did the same with my mom's 2014 vehicle and got the same results.  I will add that the interior on her car needed a good amount of elbow grease to get completely clean but the end results have been the same thus far.  Doing her car was kind of a test for me and Adam's products to get a true sense of the effectiveness and ability of the product.  I was and still am truly impressed at how well everything worked and the transformation on the interior of her car!!!

 

It might suck going back over everything but it might be worth a shot.  With the interior cleaner, it works pretty damn easy so that should help.  Maybe give it a shot cleaning the interior with Adam's interior cleaner and then go back over everything with the leather conditioner and let it sit overnight and see if the results improve?

 

Hope that feedback helps a little in your quest for that great looking, smelling, and feeling interior!!

Thanks Tony, I had no problems with the leather in my New Jeep, just the vinyl and plastic door panels. The Center console armrest is fine as well, anything else looks terrible..I tried cleaning and reapplying..same results..

Awesome write up, Tony. Buuutttttt...pics or it didn't happen! ;)

BTW, for tougher jobs, give the Leather & Interior Cleaner a run. Great stuff!

Alright Falcaineer, here is my proof the interior cleaning event actually happened lol.  The pictures really don't do it justice for just how nice this turned out on the inside!

 

You also brought up a great point about using the Leather & Interior cleaner!  That is the product I actually used and not just interior cleaner, I noticed that after I read back through my post.

 

MyRedCharger08,

 

It might be worth giving the SVRT a try on the vinyl and plastic door panels.  You can use a microfiber towel to knock down some of the shine if it is to much for your liking.  I've used this in the past on interior hard plastics and loved how it looked and it lasted for a good long time before needing touched up.

 

Hope that helps!

 

Tony

MyRedCharger08,

 

At the bottom right of the reply window there is the option called More Reply Options, click on that and scroll down a little.  Now at the bottom left there will be a tab for attaching files.  Click on Browse to select files from your computer and then click Attach This File.  This should post up pics for you.

 

Hope that helps.

 

Tony

Thats weird, mine left the same types of blotchy marks, but they were up on that textured plastic at the very top of the panel which is the top of your picture.

I have the leather in the same areas as you, but my leather looks excellent.

Door panels are not leather, seats are leather, center arm rest is leather, steering wheel wrapped in leather, but door panels and arm rest is vinyl. Unless you have a very expensive car, most are vinyl. The suede inserts are not real leather suede either..thats where my arm rests and my leg hits the door panel..

How are you guys applying it? Ive used leather conditioner on real leather, hard plastic dashboard cover, vinyl door panels, and plastics and all came out looking great.

Ok, maybe not Wheel Cleaner. haha

 

 

I'll give Adam's a call tomorrow, I don't think I have ever smelt a leather jacket that smells like my bottle.

I can smell wheel cleaner in my driveway still days after using it. It has a lasting odor. My leather conditioner doens't smell bad at all. It honestly has zero scent to it.

Leather Conditioner smells awesome. Wheel Cleaner smells like skunk.
