    John U- I love it that you and I are on the same page about discussing, let alone *asking* about, what somebody`s [something] cost!

    It`s even on websites.... I got a few Rolls Royce owners twisted up on that site. Inconsiderate posters being forward about their need to know. Many are car flippers and do you expect them to tell you exactly what they paid for a car they are reselling..... dumb.

    You can buy nice RR`s for $20K. Less if you want a "mess". Their forum consists of hands on owners who turn their own wrenches...very interesting information is found out, just like here!
    The cost of membership is made up for quickly by the complimentary tickets I get for the Scottsdale car auctions in January and Mecum in March. The monthly magazine is a very nice "read".

They had an advertisement in a trade magazine (what`s that?)"Design News" I received as a CAD Technician in Mechanical Design in the early 80`s. Used a lot of their products for my "shade tree" mechanics. Not cheap, but their fore-mentioned Kroil are one of the few penetrating oils rust-busters that actually "work" when "other" products fail. It is one of those products that every mechanic should have in their tool box, especially up here in the upper Midwest where salt corrosion rusts all external fasteners and nuts. They are invaluable for removing rusted-on lug nuts on axle studs and rims on disc brake hubs.
    They also make a very good cleaner/degreaser called Floway and its claim-to-fame is does not affect electrical devices or eat plastic.
    Another product they make is Prevox Rust Preventative and Lubricant. This is what a paper converting machine company I worked for would spray on replacement/spare parts or machines that were being shipped overseas to humid climates to prevent rust. Easy to remove with mineral spirits and did not interfere with paint or plastics integrity. Not sure if this would work in cars driven in salty winter climates.

    Thanks to those, Guz in particular, who responded about using Colourlock leather-care products Not sure if this a hidden gem in leather-care and we all just need more experiences and information about this leather-care line.
