Sorry a late post. I tripped over Bowden's Own when I was trying to find how to deal with the leather on the GT3s Recaro buckets. Their Wheely Clean and Tyre Sheen along with their whole range are good (Australian) product. Bowden's Own Tyre Sheen

+1 on the Bowden's range - good to also have products that are great and Australian.

I might also check out whats available from the professional detailing shops too.

Most products are silicone or water based, and will sling or wash off. I've used a petroleum-based product for about 10 years, which reinstates the pasticizers that UV leaches from tyres, penetrates rather than sits on the surface (so no sling/wash off) and lasts well. It gives a matt, original, rather than cheap used car lot spivvy shine.

Not available in Aus though I don't think, Race Glaze Colour Enhance from the UK.

Saw an ad last night that it's on sale this weekend at supercheap - although last time I was there the Bowen's range wasn't that big.

The factory plastic trim pieces for my 240z are all cracked and broken, so this week I repaired them and covered them in alcantara.

 

Hi Jeff - Shane Here we met briefly on a run down south - I had the Lapis Blua C4 996 

I'm looking for some help in finding a reasonable supplier of Alcantara and where you might recommend.

Thanks Shane

 

Ps - admire your work ,

Alcantara is a brand name basically, the product is micro suede. I got mine from Daleys in Chester Hill, Sydney, for a reasonable price. I am not sure where you actually get genuine Alcantara brand stuff, but it is around, it is just very expensive.
