    I think i remember Mellow Yellow using leather dye on his interior, I am about to purchase some of the same stuff that was used. One question... How many tins would i need to do a dash, door cards and interior plastics?

    First post on the gold side... :headbang:: :headbang::

    That stuff looks like you need to be wearing a safety suit and breathing equipment to use it going by the skull & crossbones on the tin!!


    Might be good stuff but is it really worth it?? :bye2:

    new focus RS is amazing
    Erm ---two thoughts --is it available in shark grey

    plus safety ---- probably worth going to a decent H&S factors and getting a very decent nose mouth mask . eg not one that is just good enough for dust -- masks are different!!

    That stuff that you used mellow looks the ticket! Cheers fellas, I have a few good chemical masks here at home, ill make sure to use them! Mellow... What stuff did you use on the seats? I am debating whether or not to do my cabaret seats black, they are in really good nick the way they are and would be a Shame maybe to ruin a set?
    Thanks

    I'm using some Duplicolor stuff simply called "trim paint" on mine, and two cans will be almost enough. I've also used it to refurb grilles and headlamp bezels, and have been satisfied. :snack:

    I just used a black leather renovating cream on my seats for the bolsters. They're black leather seats and I never dyed them mate.
