Re: Vinyl cleaning

Like i said in my first reply,clean with a decent cleaner (acetone or similar) and a nice rub with baby oil...cheap as chips and fab results.Sorted for less than £2.00 If it is really bad resort to dye.

Re: Vinyl cleaning

Or you could use a leather dye to change the colour,i changed a rear seat from red to black,as i could not find a black back seat.only cost £8 ish looks fab and wears well,gave it a good clean first with acetone and a rub with leather dubbing afterwards.

Re: servo assisted brake problem

Do the unions up tight,check and check again,air can be pulled in,even if fluid is not leaking out,worth having a look at the wheel cylinders too.
