Are you saying it's fading over a short period of time? I've never seen that before.

Intriguing, Mike. Left on your dashboard or did you treat it?

I tried a series of different things..just wanted to see what would happen.

First was exposure to ozone..no change after several days.

Next was just a light scrubbing with a yellow pad.. again, no change.

Then, I just couldn't wait any longer and tried dipping it directly..

Ten minutes in solution, then rinse.. not much change.

Another ten minutes, then rinse.. starting to change.

Then six minutes and rinse.. done.

It was only a test and I don't recommend that anyone else try it.

Mike

I really like it in the state shown in the second photo.

Well done.
