Does it come in red?

Any feedback about it? IE how well has it fixed to the carpet? Is it likely to rub off, the reason i ask is i'm after some red dye for my seats which ideally i don't want rubbing off on my clothes.

Seem to have taken really well its not just for carpets the tin says it does metals plastics tires  rubber Im unsure if it comes in red i was give 4 tins free at work lol
It doesn't dry hard or crunchy and drys really quick and doesn't rub off on my hands so would say would be ok not sure how long it will last tho but Im confident it will made it look new

That alternator has come a peach, looks brand new. Think I will have a go at that too.

I see you made a new strap too, cracking :wink:
If you know of any links to sites that have any info on the pearly ones, pm please.

More excellent work Ben. My carpet is still in the shed, has been for weeks now! I need to treat the rust below it first though.
