    Good find on the portable dehumidifier! - got me thinking now... as much as I don't mind the 90's damp smell LOL!

    Yeah my car is stored at my mums house which is a bit of a drag
    yes m8 i will be re-dyeing

    i got the cleaner, conditioner & dye from gliptone. bizarrely i heard of them a long time ago & when i came to purchase they had moved to an industrial estate literally 5 mins drive from me so i popped in there

    for reference if you look at my build thread earlier pages there are pics of the steering wheel i refurb'd ages ago but donated to the gf for her storm when she sold it

    i am about to call the place that relined my gf's headliner in her storm to ask how much to remove 1 sagging bolster & install the replacement i got form lilfuzzer

    the dehumidifier is tidy, they simply plug into the mains for a few hours to recharge & then good to go again

    currently on the hunt for a decent outdoor all weather car cover too - the portable garage i was considering just feels too big for my driveway

    i have looked at the Movendi one MikeVR6 posted here a couple of months ago but it is advertised as indoor

    anyone have any suggestions?

    i have today found this one https://www.stormcarcovers.co.uk/col...iant=640763609 which seems to tick all of the outdoor/weather boxes

    grabbed a couple of hours in the workshop last night & remembered to take a couple of pics lol

    seat front facing panels are coming along nicely as is the steering wheel, each have now had a coat of conditioner. though the passenger seat is in superb condition i am going to re-dye it so as not to have a mismatch between the 2

    i think i will end up refurb'ing the front door cards too as ive got some audioscape's to fit (thanks grizzlybear), once ive adapted them to fit the late window switch - may as well whilst they are off

    im hoping the rear seats & cards will get away with just a clean & condition as they look pretty much like when they left the factory

    interesting short drive home after seeing my parents last night as the rocker decided to let go in the valver headlight switch. glad it was only a short distance & all under street lit areas

    there was some tricky use of half full beam going on lol

    fortunately, when the 1st group buy for the replica new switches happened on here & had I parted the valver but had the VR, i thought to myself 'i will buy 2 just in case i ever get the valver back'

    good job i did as i found it in the valver glove box on the way to work this morning, will fit it at break time

    spoke to the trim place by me yesterday & took the drivers seat down for them to look at

    what a nice chap. he ended up letting me leave it with him as he said he would squeeze it in & have it done in a few days - result as they had a sign saying they were not accepting work in aug 2017 due to how busy they were so i was expecting a wait

    he was a little surprised i had a pretty much new bolster to be fitted, 'rare as rocking horse ****' were his words lol

    he quoted around £40-50 which i was happy with & he also commented on how nice the leather smelt & how soft it was as id mentioned it was mid refrub

    mind you im not surprised he had a big smile, him & his wife must have been high as frickin kites as the smell of adhesive blew my head off from just standing in the doorway of the workshop for a couple of mins!! lol
