This product is like tyre wall black ,with the shine lasting about a week or so, however I have just noticed that
the stitching on my 2 year old hood is starting to rot around the rear window and across the top, when I consulted the hood manufacturer he was amazed ,as he has examples of his still in good condition after 10 years ,he manufactures an fits hoods for Roll Royces,Mercedes,BMW,etc.
I mentioned I have been careful with the hood,and had given it about 4 coats of Renovo,he mentioned that you should not use any treatment for vinyl and that he felt this was the cause of the problem.
I will be down about £300 to have the problem fixed. (hood off and restitched)
Editors Note: This is the first time I have heard of a problem like this, and I really can not see how anything in the renovo product could have caused this. I would suggest that you contact Renovo directly:
Renovo International Ltd

Anyone who works with vinyl will tell you that sunlight makes it go brittle in time. The main purpose of the Ultra Proofer is to protect the vinyl from the ultraviolet in the sunlight.
