Renovo International

The company supplies products to clean, dye and water-proof vinyl and double duck hoods and tonneau covers. I purchased the company's Fabric Kit for my Singer's discoloured hood, tonneau and hood cover. The package contained Soft Top Cleaner, Soft Top Black Colour Reviver and Ultra Proofer. A top up kit was required as the Singer's hood and tonneau are double length.

You need to carefully follow the instructions and allocate plenty of time to apply the three products, but the end result is good and far cheaper than new weather equipment.

Ongar Plating Service as recommended by Chris Sharman.

I recently used this company to chrome my Singer's side screen fasteners. The proprietor took an interest and the chroming quality was good, with a 4 day turn around, plus the cost was reasonable.
