    Mucked up my leather, need help!

    Detailing my new Optima last night at 4am (first bad idea)
    i took a small like 1" patch of leather almost clean off. Scrubbed it to the point it is now a dark brown, and all the leather is cracked and worn. It looks aweful.

    I want to dye/paint it back. But I can't find the right color or product to do so. The TRIM color code for my 2012 Optima is: U P

    but it trying to look that up has been very unsuccessful. And I'm not even sure if that's the right color I need,
    i have the kinda white/beige interior.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction.

    (Also, Do not scrub leather with a magic eraser.)

    call some of your auto dealers in the area and ask them who they use for upholstery repairs. might be less cost and will look like new... That must have been some party you were at before you deceided to detail the car...
