“Warren did an absolutely amazing job restoring the leather seat in my 2008 Toyota Tundra truck. It had been damaged with a burn-through hole in the seat approx. 1.5. in by 0.25 in. wide. He came to my home, and after working on it about 2 hrs, he made the damage disappear. I would highly recommend him for such repairs and will definitely call upon him again if I experience any damage to my leather upholstery.”
