The nylon brush was a good tip rest was pretty much common sense and the pictures are all dead but thanks for the link.
Judging by number of views and 1 reply i assume everyone has read this and took the piss. So here are some results.
Did 1 half at a time, mop bucket full of water, 1 pack of dylon tulip red fabric dye, 1 pack of dylon 500g salt, used the whole lot on 1 side each time leaving it to sit for 1/2 hour
Then a good hosing down, I washed it with the jetwash but hosed it with down after dying with tap pressure. Then left to drip dry. It dries incredibly fast on a warm day like this.
And the finished result is....
The red strip at the sides is almost completely gone so with the red rape tape im hoping it will kind of last at least a while. Started with 1 strip sticky side up along the stitch line.
Another strip to give it a better chance of sticking to the rubber underneath.
Then finally 1 strip on top to keep it red and hide the sticky side.
It looks pink in the picture but i can assure you it is red, not quite as red as I want it lol but its not orange and thats all that matters.
