1996 Winnebago Vectra Grand Tour 35'
I was researching a way to change the color of the dash pad which was awful looking. Kinda like pea soup color, great condition...just ugly as sin. And the captains chairs were in great physical shape but needed to be brightened up. I wanted to do this without using any sort of aerosol fabric/leather paint. So I found the product called "Rub N Restore.
Bought the color of the chairs which is taupe. I purchased a 16oz and 8 oz bottles. Wanted to be sure I had plenty because i knew it would take a few quotes to cover the pea soup. I am amazed with the turn out!!! I will post more before and after pictures of the dash pad but here are before and after on the chairs. It brought them back to life. And I mean BRAND NEW! Its a water based dye that is applied with a ocilla sponge slightly damp. You MUST constantly stir..not shake...but stir the dye or else you will get streaks of lighter and darker shading. And bubbles on the surface from shaking it. The 8oz did 4 coats of the dash, which is a massive dash, and 3 coats on the passenger chair. (doing the driver chair this weekend) It goes a long way. I will have plenty left over for whatever I use it for. GREAT PRODUCT and I highly recommend it. I cost me 50 bucks for both bottles. I'd say 18oz bottle is plenty for 2 captain's chairs if you consider doing it. Make sure you clean the surface with a household cleaner like 409. You can use a hair dryer between coats if you want. Just make sure its good and dry between coats. Here is a video from the company:
It adheres well to vinyl or leather and will not bleed color off on clothes if it gets wet or sweating etc...Consider this product before re upholstery. Worth ever penny. I will post better pics on the second chair and dash pad.
