That's pretty impressive. Does it claim any waterproofing properties? Wonder if it looks as good after its been out in the rain and frost a few times...

Its leather shoe dye, you seal it with shoe wax and polish it like shoes and it is as waterproof as shoes are, takes three days to dry, if it is a white seat it takes two to three coats so nine days..one bottle... John

I always use punch dye, you have to make sure the seat is clean first and let the first coat dry propery before you put on the second, and it helps if you put a clean tablecloth on the dining room table before you start... John
