Roger GoodeHi VernerI’m surprised that Renovo has not produced a perfect and lasting result. Are you 100% that you followed the instruction exactly? I’ve used Renovo for decades and the only poor result was when I thought I could take a shortcut.I’m sure any business that refurbishes car interiors and hoods etc. would do the job for you.Which area do you live in? This will help people in making recommendations.RegardsRoger
Roger GoodeHi VernerI’m pleased to see that your, I guess, a member of R7.May I suggest that you speak with A S Pickering in Bradford. They are a highly respected firm that’s been in business for decades. I’m sure they will be able to help you https://www.aspickering.co.uk/RegardsRoger
D911ARKHi Verner,Welcome. You have suggested that you've followed the instructions (as others have mentioned) but there are a few things to consider:1, it's been a lovely summer (and still ongoing until this week). If your car is outside, it's going to have an effect on it ad speed up any aging process (even after treatment)2, your hood may have suffered 'irreparable' sunlight damage and fading at a guess and you may end up chasing your tail. How old is it? I'm guessing it could be as much as 13 years old? That's a lot of sun if it's been kept outside over those years3, I always put two coats of waterproofer (Fabisil Gold) on, but mine is kept garaged It is of course possible, that hood specialists have a wider availability of dyes etc. As I found out with my E36s in the past, blue fades quite badly (i also knew less about car care back then) and it is one of the pitfalls of ragtops IMO Either way, who needs the hood up any way?! :) Mark
CLIFFWILKINSNice one Verner. looking good.
