    Feeling a bit light-headed but, finally, after a couple of days scrubbing, masking and spraying, I have finished refurbishing my seats. I hope you like...

    Before:

    After:

    I took plenty of pics during the process so I'll do a 'how to' with a few tips and tricks in the near future, once I can sit down after finishing the rest of the interior!

    I don't know about you, but I'm pretty impressed with myself!

    Forgot to mention the trip to A&E as a direct result of this project.... =/ I'll save that story for the write-up! No blood involved, sorry.

    Impressive work David. I was impressed when I saw the sneak peak photos you sent me. I'm guessing this was done using stuff from the @Furniture Clinic?

    The sport seats on my car are badly faded and need recolouring so a good write up will be appreciated ;)

    Sure Is @GazHyde. I had my concerns about the airbrush kit due to what I'd read of other members using alternative dyes (scuffmaster) but the FC one worked a treat.

    Thanks Aceman,

    Close, but no cigar! It's Furniture Clinic's Tanin Red.

    At the moment it seems to contain a hint of brown to the colour, but I'm hoping in daylight this changes.

    Nice garage, I particularly like the light carpet, TV and radiator. Much more comfortable for jobs like these,

    Hang on a minute.... that's not your living room, is it?
    So, when is the divorce?

    I had FC remedy my driver's side bolster but it is breaking down again.
    Very impressed with your workmanship and the colour combo.
