I was actually thinking of getting in embroidered in red stitching to match the red that's already in the car. This will only be done possibly in the fall when I get the seat centers redone in a quilted pattern. I'm not sure how much success you'll have with the dye zorro212, but I would be interested in seeing the end result. Cheers.....??

Definitely go w/ embroidery (as suggested above) or some sort of overlay.

Automotive leathers are dyed & then "sealed" w/ a breathable urethane coating. Scuff-marks & wear-&-tear can be spot-fixed using a dye pen/brush, but to do an embossed area over existing dye & aforementioned coating may not turn out all that good.

Thanks for your thoughts.
One of the guys we know in the car club actually dyed a symbol on his leather seats and it looks fantastic.
whether it holds up or not remains to be seen.
The leather dye I was told to use is called Angelus Leather Paint
I’ll keep you posted with Pics if I go this route
