Linen colour code

Hi all, 
 
I was speaking with Gliptone/liquid leather about buying dye for the linen coloured leather interior in my 944.
 
They mentioned they have a bottle with the label "linen 7vx".
 
I know I have linen interior but my car is with JMG at the moment so I can't easily check stickers for any more detail.
 
Was there only ever one linen colour? Or various versions of this? Or does anyone know what the 7vx is for? According to Gliptone, this is a Porsche specific code but they don't know any more than that.

When I ordered for my 944, I just gave them the colour as "linen" i.e. no code. Attached should be a picture of what it looked like when I'd finished applying it. Well worth the effort.
 
Cheers,
Bryan

Thanks for the replies guys. Very helpful.
 
Bryan, that looks great. Did you use the cleaner, dye and then condition? Or is there more to it? Can it be done over a weekend or does it take longer?

I cleaned off all the surface dirt before applying the dye, which is essentially paint. It's a little bit fiddly to get into the seams and joins, which is where all the fluff and other bits and pieces accumulate, so well worth getting them cleaned out thoroughly first. I remember thinking it looked terrible as it went on, but as it dried, it looked almost as good as new. I only did the fronts, but could tell no difference in colour when comparing to the untreated rear seats, so a brilliant match.
 
I remember that it got into the little perforated holes on the seat, which bugged me a little bit, but overall, the before and after comparison made me forget about that.
 
A weekend should be long enough, although I can't remember how long the drying time was.
 
Afraid I can't remember if there was a special cleaner or conditioner that came with it.
 
It needed touching up on the bolsters about 3 years later, but that took just a few minutes.
 
Cheers,
Bryan
