Seller is a member on here, Bob "black and white"

I've not used it personally, but at least it's got the cleaner, paint and the varnish, unlike other "dyes" I've seen sold

As you know I do leather dye kits for 75/ZT's. You may be surprised to know I've so far sent them to :-

France
Ireland
Hungary
Bulgaria
Italy
Netherlands
Portugal
Belgium
Spain
Germany
Greece
Australia
The northern most part of Shetland
And even Japan.

It seems these cars are being looked after far and wide. Pretty impressive.

I've sent ECM to South Africa, Spain, France, Jamaica, New Zealand and Australia, and IPK to Holland and France.

Do I get a medal?

Bought some, used it.............and it's great. Generous quantities, great colour match and it looks hard wearing. Can't load pics 'cos I won't pay the tenner.

Yes, like the kind I got from a certain Radioguy for the steering wheel he sold me which (a) wasn't a perfect colour match, (b) started wearing off again after a few months.
