Passenger seat

Post by david troughton »

I’m looking for a passenger seat for my meteor (TGS) black with red stripes velour type fabric, unless anyone knows how to remove dried wood glue from it!
Thanks
David

If a pva or water-based glue, try some hot water with a good dose of bio clothes-washing liquid in it.
Use a small nail brush on the pile.
An alternative is some slightly abrasive workshop hand cleaner.
Neither should affect the colour.

A damp cloth left over the glue for a while should soften it up

A steamer should get it off if it is pva.
