Interior refresh - re connolising

Hi, looking for some help as struggling to find anybody in the Newcastle Upon Tyne area that can re connolise ( might be the old terminology as I think its just water base painted nowadays) my Aston Martin Vantage,
need to take the car as I don't fancy taking the interior out

Any help really appreciated

Thanks

I have been looking at some detailing sites regards looking after leather interiors and there's a big rap about the Leather Company based in Hull. I know they do franchises and they might point you towards someone around Newcastle?

I've used a few of their products recently which seem to be good.

And they couldn't be more helpful when I contacted them.

I think re connollising leather seats is a dying art now, I wouldn't think many current detailers will know what it is, let alone do it. I used to do it years ago, on old Ferraris, Astons and Rolls Royces using the genuine Connolly products, they were cellulose based, and quite messy to use.
As all modern car interiors are water based pigments now, I doubt if you will be able to buy solvent based colours, due to regulations.
I would possibly contact someone like Gliptone, or Woolies to see if they can recommend a restorer in your area? There will be specialists who do it still, but it may take a bit of time to find them.
