I have faded, but still very good textured mousehair in my GTC/4. What is the best way to dye it back to its original color? I prefer not to use Armorall. Michael Bayer 330GT #9727, 365GTC/4 #14947

Mike:

the mousefur in my C4 was in OK condition, so if yours is poor, then the following may not be sufficient.

I used Leatherique Rejuvenator Oil and Cleaner. Put the former on fairly heavily, massage in, and cover with plastic for 24-48 hours. Clean with the Cleaner. I used a 1 inch paint brush to apply the Rejuvenator to the very edge of the mouse fur on the rear deck under the back window and the front edge under the windshield.

I have done this three times over the last year or two. The first time was the most improvement, but each subsequent time helped a little more.

You can search this forum and FerrariChat for other experience with this product. Also, check out the latest Forza Shoptalk column for more on products for leather, including Leatherique. I have yet to get confirmation that mousefur is leaher or vinyl.

Searched high and low about restoration of mouse fur. Gave up and had the complete dash/glovebox redone as part of a "refreshening" in my '72 246. It was expensive, time consuming, and very intricate to do. Windscreen had to be pulled in order to get dash removed. Had wiper scratches on windscreen so there was good reason to do job. Firm I worked with was Jon Gunderson of Dino Restorations out in Escondido, CA.
