Actually if I remember correctly my 1979 Alfasud Sprint had colour coded seat belts and not just black.
They were a fawny-brown colour and looked better on a light interior than black belts.

That is a FANTASTIC looking combination - the colour/wheels/interior blend beatufully - the effect is classy aggression. The tan leather loooks great, and I agree, those wheels are heaps better than selespeeds IMO.

Good choice

FARK.. I just typed a ****load and it all got deleted.. ARGH

Solution is like 80% Moisturiser and 20% Cleanser. That is what I was told by the company which installed the leather. They are not the manufacturer as the leather is imported from italy.

Ill look into it further and find out what its made up of exactly.

It works so well and doesnt make the leather shiny AT ALL. It looks exactly, EXACTLY the same as the day I got my car, 14 months ago. Honestly.

The company is;

Blackman & Son in Caringbah, Sydney.
