Sam: thanks for the reply I checked Sem they have vinyl dye in the firethorn but not in leather dye. I also tried Year One and Classic chevy and ETC,ETC. I tried G.M. too with the same response!! I cant use vinyl dye it will harden the leather and seal it so it cant breath and the leather will crack (its like using paint on leather)!! I was hoping some of the upholsterers on here might have some old firethorn dye still in their shops LOL I have leather dyes 40 years old that are still good like an ugly yellow saddle dye I only used once on a custom show halter!! LOL

I checked all the older auto upholstery shops around Michigan and they all responded with "we used to have it but we threw it out years ago LOL!!

Thanks again for your reply: Chris
