Actually semi-aniline is the finishing process after tanning. Nothing to do with the colour.semi-analine is the red color in this photo
Equipment: 851A LEATHER/NAPPA/SEMI-ANILINE - BLACK/ANTHRACITE
black/anthracite is the black
semi-analine is the 'red'
Hi guys, i have red and black leather in my 55AMG as its the Designo interior. There is some wear on the drivers seat and I have been looking at some of the restoration kits but not sure of the colour, where can I find the colour code of the leather seats, they are red and black as per photo? Any help appreciated...:smile:
Just a thought... do you think your car may have started life with an all black/anthracite interior, and then a previous owner might have painted parts of the interior red to create the 2-tone finish?Strange how it says Black / Anthracite when they are two tone Red and black
Yes, have had it confirmed now from the datacard, it is "classic red" and it was spec,d with Designo two tone interior, the red dash trim again is wrapped "Classic Red" leather inserts, not painted. I have had a look at the link and looks good, will probably order the set and have a go when the weather is a bit warmer ? There is some good YouTube vids of the process as well, looks like something I can tackle lolJust a thought... do you think your car may have started life with an all black/anthracite interior, and then a previous owner might have painted parts of the interior red to create the 2-tone finish?
There are some parts of your interior that certainly appear, in your photo, like they may have been painted (such as the red dash trim, etc. - I'm not sure whether that was ever an option). If so, then your datacard won't tell you the correct red colour to use. You could check your V5 for previous owner (registered keeper) details and try contacting them to ask if they did it, and how... but, if it was done by an owner prior to that, then they won't be able to help either.
Here's a pic of my Designo interior too (clearly a different red to yours, but I thought I'd share to show what was colour-coordinated with the red leather bits)...
Cheers Stuart, going to give it a whirl :grin:Try these guys once you have confirmed the colour, they sell a refurb kit comprising of a cleaner, leather dye and sealer for about £40.00 says it should do 2 seats you may need 2 for the 2 tone seats.
