    I'm trying to keep it out of sunlight, but what else can I do?

    There is a suede insert, but I'm worried about the leather.

    Everything you need to know is in the Product list.

    Like SickLife said, clean and condition, with cleanliness being #1.

    Leather care for your snake

    VB,

    I wanted the best leather care products for my new snake, too. (I think we both bought our Cobras around the same time. Anyway, I ordered the Zaino Z-9 leather cleaner and Z-10 conditioner products (along with just about every other Zaino product). Just spent the entire weekend completely detailing my ride inside and out, and am REALLY happy with the results. The leather is now "live" and supple, instead of chalky and brittle. I know you'll love it, too.

    By the way, our seat inserts aren't really suede. They're made of a fabric by Gulf Fabrics, Inc. called Alcantara, which is a really good knock-off that's much easer to care for. (Check out www.gulffabrics.com for specs and care info.)

    TIP: Before I treated the leather, I picked up a can of Scotch-Guard fabric spray and sprayed the hell out of the inserts, carpeting, and mats - just to make getting the inevitable dirt and spills easier to remove.

    Regards,

    T-

    I've got black leather seats in my '7 and what i do is this.

    Get Lexol Leather Conditioner and spray that shit on and rub it in with your hands, then let the seats sit for a few hours. They'll feel softer than a baby's butt and look good too.
