I habe been using stuff called "Hide Food" either by or for Jaguar (It says
Jaguar on the can). It seems to be good stuff - although my drivers seat is
falling apart. Most likely this is due to not enough treatment by me though and
no care at all by the previous owner.
I got it at the local import parts place.
