Hmmm, glad I found this post...maybe.
Glad to see everyone so passionate about their KR leather. But, now I'm probably even more confused than I was before. How about we update this a little...if that's OK? Looks like it's been a couple of years since all the hoopla was going on...maybe people have been scared to add to this, I don't know. But, I ain't scared!!
Since Ford changed the KR leather for 2009 to Chaparral leather, instead of the original Castano leather, probably for the heated/cooled seats, how is it different for care? Surely there are other '09 KR owners on this site wondering the same thing. And, since both Castano and Chaparral leathers are both aniline leathers, and probably cared for similarly, has anyone found a proven product for the '09 KR leather?
Rockpick/Lenticular, why don't you guys setup a voting page for all the different products everyone has mentioned? I'd really like to know what everyone thinks works the best, without the after-effects. And, I'm not talking about re-finishing leather that has not been taken care of, I'm talking about starting fresh taking care of a new one...to keep it in great shape.
For example, is the actual KR Leather Conditioner the best, or is it Lexol, or Leather CPR, or DuraGloss 221, or Meguiars, or LeatherMaster, or is there really any difference in any of them?
And, I do understand with any of them, you MUST clean the leather, before you condition it...just like an aniline leather sofa or chair. If not, you just condition the dirt into the leather. So, the ones that boast that they clean and condition kind of scare me.
So, does anyone want to get this all stirred up again?
