back of the jacket?
Does anyone know if this will ruin the paint or should this be done to preserv the paint like the rest of the jacket?
This question does also make me think about the the painted leather patches, does treating them with pecard (or whatever you use) help to preserve them or does it do more damage?

I've only done it twice so it's far from conclusive, but in both cases the paint was not affected and I applied it very gingerly. As it darkens up the leather I did find that the faint paintwork became less a little distinguishable and the wonderful patina of the old dry leather was lost which has made me think twice about doing it. Here are some before and after shots.
