Default Re: Can one spray rexine?

Try this stuff it's amazing, will even turn a green covered player to red if you wish and doesn't look like you've just painted it with gloss paint. Ideal for faded Rexine but badly damaged will have to be a re-cover.
Go to the link and search sellers other items to find many colours and shades.

Good quality artists acrylic is perfect for this. Can be mixed to get the right colour and stays flexible. Crimson is a good match for Roberts red.

Agreed- I refinished a leather steering wheel in (cheap) acrylic, which showed no wear three years of daily use later.

I am restoring a Bush SRP30, the Cabinet was badly stained, I tried Mr Muscle Kitchen spray and small scrubbing brush, it worked a treat I am really pleased with end result. Previously with other RP I have re- covered them with Rexine, I wish I had tried this product before.
Cheers
John
