  1. Motorcycle seat finnish?

    I only use oil dye... so i can just speak for its success with that. But i dont see why it wouldnt. Do a search on forum bout resolene and im sure someone will have already addressed that topic. Good luck

  4. Another Theobald Inspired Build

    Pre airbrush dying and after. I assemble seat, then dye. More specifically. .. I Dip dye natural kangaroo lace. Lace. Airbrush dye seat with fiebings and denatured alcohol mix. Resist 2 coats of rtc. Antique with fiebings cut with tan kote. Then, 3 coats resolene. Dying after assembly cuts down the chance of an undyed section showing through.
