Default ripped leather

My leather has a few rips in the leather and I want to fix it before it gets out of hand.

I'v never seen a sucessful leather repair. Instead, I've seen the replacement of parts with ones in much better condition or new replacement panels from upholstery shops. What specific areas are you speaking of? Driver'* bolster??

it'* in my drivers seat. I read a few of the other forums re same topic and got some useful information. Is using leather conditioner a waste of money or is there some ultimate good that using a conditioner do?

Leather conditioner is a great idea to keep leather moist and prolong cracks that can turn into rips. It certainly doesn't repair rips though.
