Production of the final R500 – number 174 – finished at Dartford recently and is destined for Caterham’s distributor in Peru, South America, of all places.

It’s a water-based ‘dry-cure’ (no, not bacon) dressing for interior trim such as dashboards, door trims and the like and it gives a very pleasant sheen with a dry touch that doesn’t dazzle when applied to dash-tops.

Dressle can also be used on engine bays, wheel arches and has a pleasing citrus-aroma that is very subtle, which More >
