    I have the Autoglym kit and its a very good way of cleaning and sealing but, wont bring colour back. I imagine any fabric dye would do it but you would need to be careful.

    is that a dye kit by autoglym or the clean and seal one?i used it last year which was great but it didnt alter the colour.
    my roof was leaking a little where the roof meets the windscreen so i used the kit not realising the seal spray is silicone based and made a right mess of the windows and paint, i used the auto glym tar remover and it lifted it straight off, it did the job tho stopped the leak.
    but yeh my roofs milky blue i want it fresh like ive got the rest of the car lookin.

    The Renovo stuff is meant to be really good, at least for black roof's anyway. Supposedly restores the blackness???????
