    Hello Ginge. Does the furiture polish soak into the Dacron fabric or I suppose as they are shiony inside this doen't happen. Any ideas how to stop the oil from the aileron hinges etc soaking into the fabric. This is what happened to my old set and they look terrible. (hence the new set)
    Nope, it have never given me a problem since Gordon Pill recommended its use some years back.

    If you find a way of preventing those oil stains let me know, despite careful masking and removing any excess I still get them
