    Apologies in advance for hijacking this thread, but.....

    My car is Stratos Grey with a light grey hood. It has a few faded bits from not living in a garage for its earlier life. I've really struggledto find grey hood paint. Does anyone have any ideas?

    No experience of the product but have of the brand (for interior leather and it was good)

    20 secs to google:

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Scratch-Doc...anvas+dye+grey

    That said grey is a tough colour as too many variants/shades, to effectively dye discoloured bits my thinking is you'd have to go darker rather than lighter for it to look good

    Thank you so much! Can't understand why my searches didn't turn this up.

    I applied the AeroTech protectant for use on "fabric", as my '08 Portfolio has a fabric top. First, I vacuum the top and applied the product using a 3" brush with overlapping strokes and insuring the liquid evenly coated the top. At first, it went on as a whitish liquid but later dried without a problem. BTW, my top is dark blue. With one coat, there was a marked difference in the "beeding" when it rained. It has been recommended to apply two coats for best performance.
