ok heres a small update no change at all did the spa treatment with a drop of baby shampoo in the water keep the towels hot as possible to no avail think the guy who had them said he put some leather oil on them i think they are gone but since they look so rough might try to put the water and towels and soap ( baby shampoo) in my big pot and use the propane heater to heat the stuff up to just before a boil? might need a few treatments and to dry out the oil? maybe the baby shampoo is not strong enough for the stuff he put on? not sure what to try to use with the water?

Some people say to use Murphys oil soap.. I wouldn't just because my seats are great condition. But in your case, can't get any worse...

Also use leather honey hands down... its the best conditioner without a doubt. If you apply it heavy and rub it in hard and fast to create heat, it will absorb better and even it out most likely.

Also when you do that, the leather will turn black. This is normal and will go away.

Good luck
