Used Acrukolor in a brush on version to recolor some hard plastic pieces and was extremely surprised at how easy it was to use. Not only is it holding up well after 2 years, but the finish looks like the day 1 brushed it on. Thanks for a great product. George Sharpey London, UK

I did not believe you guys when you told me that this product (Alsiflex) would not crack or absorb moisture and still remain flexible. You have made a believer out of me. I used it to repair my aluminium boat 2 years ago and am pleased to say that it has held up very well and saved me a lot of money. Thanks a bunch Joe Pecca T oronto, ON

Nice going guys. Am very impressed with your service and products, that I am interested in becoming a dealer for you products in my area. Loved your filler Alsiflex and the polish Hi Gloss.

What a gorgeous product. So easy to use and sands easy. Need to order more Alsiflex as have many other jobs lined up as I am now confident that I can guarantee my work on the aluminum boats that I repair. Chris Point Miami, FL

Finally a product that lives up to its claim. I started using your wax at the beginning of the summer on our tractor trailer and love it. We have put on approximately 28,000 miles and have run into numerous rain showers. Amazingly the truck looks good after all the time and miles. To maintain the look all I do is wash weekly and chamois. I enjoy being able to use your product in the direct sun light. Our truck is black and the finish your wax gives our truck is unbelievable, just like a mirror. At the Hamilton Nationals I was given a sample of your Plastic and Vinyl cleaner. It is simply the best I have ever tried. It even removed the brown residue that was left behind by previously used cleaners, that I didn't even know was there. I can hardly wait to try your new spray wax and will let you know how I like it. Sincerely, Laurie Hickox

HIGLOSS707

I have used your Hi Gloss polish for all painted, chrome, and glass surfaces during the last two years. As you promised, this polish is easy to apply, even in direct sunlight! Producing a show-car quality shine with no 'elbow grease', Hi Gloss enhances and protects these surfaces against weathering and has provided continued protection even after several car washings. Sincerely, Allan Kernot Mississauga, Ontario, Canada

Enclosed are photos of my 1988 Ford Crown Victoria, taken during the summer of 2002. We purchased this beauty 7 years ago with the current mileage showing 190,000 km. Winters in Central Ontario can be harsh, as can two teenage sons, with this vehicle surviving both. The only bodywork required was paint on both sides from the stripe down and applications of your Parasol Hi Gloss wax, which I have used now for 5 years. I have found that your 500 ml container can wax this car upto 4 times and as you can see, is well worth the money. I recently had the opportunity to try your Parasol Plastic Kleen product on the interior and vinyl roof and have concluded that it surpasses any product I have used in the past.

J’aimerais, par la presente, vous remercier de m’avoir fait connaitre un de vos produits. Etant alle au salon nautique j’ai decouvert votre produit Hi Gloss, en me procurant 4 (500ml) pour nettoyer et redonner du lustre mon bateau. La raison pour laquelle je vous ecris, c’est qu’il est rare de nos jours de ne pas se faire conter des blagues; nous sommes malheureusement trop sollicites avec des produits qui, trop souvent, n’ont pas les caracteristiques enumerees sur les contenants. C’est pourquoi je me dois de vous feliciter d’avoir mis sur le marche un produit qui repond a mes attentes et pour lequel vous vantez des merites bien fondes. Vous pouvez etre certains que je me ferai un plaisir de le faire connaitre a tous mes amis du monde nautique et autres. Bien a vous, Madeleine Desjardins 287 Rue du Parc St.-Joseph-du-lac, QC J0N 1MO

Suite a l’achat de votre cire Hi Gloss au salon de l’auto sport de Quebec, j’aimerais savoir comment je pourrais me procurer d’autres contenants de votre cire. Apres en avoir fait faire l’essai a mes amis, ils ont ete emballes par votre produit. J’aurais besoin de 4 contenants de 500 ml de cire Hi Gloss, Je vous remercie d’avance.

I've finally gotten around to sending you great photographs of the results your wondrous products have achieved. I was a little skeptical upon purchasing what to me was an expensive product. Being in the line of complete automotive restoration, I've tried everything from $2.99 waxes to $110.00 glazes. Upon applying one coat of Parasol High Gloss, I saw immediate results, not only was it easy to apply, It was even easier to remove! I applied it in full sun on a hot summer afternoon. There was no scratching, in fact it hid the scratches, brought out the "deep-wet" shine of my cars, and protected them to boot. Not only did it last the weekend, it lasted a whole year under acid rain, salt, sand, dust and road tar. Speaking of Road Tar, having only one coat of High Gloss Parasol made bugs and tar wash off my cars with no effort, just rinsed them away. It also has antistatic properties so my cars didn't get as dusty. Unlike other waxes and glazes, Parasol didn't leave a buildup or residue and it went on smoother with the second coat. I'm sending a few before and after photographs, for anyone to see the difference! Thank you so much for introducing me to the most excellent product! Sincerely, Matt Peredery

HIGLOSS707

Here are a few more photographs of before and after's. As you can see, there was a tremendous difference. To show you even greater results, I photographed my firebird after stripping all the wax off in Photo (#2 Before). I then waxed it with Meguiars 3 step (cleaner, glaze, wax) Wax system. You can see the results improved the vehicle's shine, after a long tedious day of detailing. In photo (#2 After), Meguiars wax was stripped, then Parasol was used to finish the vehicle. As you can see, the results were spectacular! Both shine and protection against the elements were increased. Thank you once again for the best product on the market! Sincerely, Matt Peredery

Very good color match even thought the sample I sent was very small. Product works well and is easy to use. Thanks G Lopez New Mexico

Best waterborne dye I have ever used. Easy to use and bonds beautifully to leather and leaves it looking original. M Chardy New Hampshire

To whom it may concern: I have used your Plastic Care 707 dressing for the vinyl, rubber and plastic surfaces. The results have been amazing! Besides protecting these surfaces and providing a sheen that is not overly bright, Plastic care 707 cleans and deeply enriches these materials, restoring their natural texture and flexibility. Sincerely, Allan Kernot Mississauga, Ontario, Canada

PLASTICCARE707

Automobiles Silver Star Montreal Inc. Just a little note to thank you for the fine service you have provided us over the past 7 years. Your products and technical advice have been invaluable to me. As you are aware we have had many problems with textured vinyl door handles and trim pieces on our cars. Compounds and waxes tend to build up on them and they turn white. This makes it very difficult to clean. Your Plastic Care 707 product has not only solved this problem but it leaves the surface looking new and original. We have recently started using your Hi Gloss polish and Lederbalsam, your leather conditioner on a more regular basis and find these also to be excellent products. Our customers are all very happy with the finish and gloss the polish provides and several have remarked on how much longer the shine remains on the surface as compared to other products that we used to use. I need not say too much about your leather conditioner. It is fantastic and the smell is so good. I highly recommend the use of your products to all my friends and especially all our Mercedes customers. Thanks once again for all your help and great service. Sincerely, Larry Lane

I sprayed the rubber dye on the 50 year old Austin Healey mat yesterday, used the gravity feed. It came out beautiful. When I used a sponge on the reverse side, to test the product, I thought that looked satisfactory, but I`m very pleased and surprised with the results by paint gun, perfect, like it came back from the factory. Thanks for the help, Bert Shirey London, ON

RUBBERBOND

My paint arrived, thank you. I followed the instructions provided by you, masked off my huge bay window outside, and started the air compressor. About 20 minutes later removed all the tape and I could not be any more pleased with the results. My ugly bright white window is gone now, and your color mixing, perfect. I am a professional artist and I have been mixing colors for over 30 years, I KNOW color, great mixing job, I could not have done better. My next plan is to paint the interior that is now a bright white vinyl, a "wood" color. I will be back Michael P Frase Swartz Creek, MI

VARIBOND

Thank you for all your help. It was as easy as you said it would be. We used 1 quart of Varibond to paint all 9 PVC (vinyl) windows of our home and the result was just unbelievable. We are more than happy with the results. Joanna Frost Reno, NV

Wanted to let you know that I had used your product Varibond product to color the interior plastics in my car some 7 years ago. The results were great and the color is still holding up great. Jim Buttle New Hamburg, ON

VARIKOLOR

Hello Harjit - KEEP UP YOUR GOOD WORK!! Recently, I had approached Parasol inc., about the color coat for leather/vinyl called WB VARIKOLOR! I am a 16+ year leather/vinyl repair tech., I have been searching for YEARS FOR A COATING THAT WOULD NOT HAVE THE FAILURE ISSUES THAT I HAD BEEN EXPIERENCING!! VARIKOLOR IS THE ANSWER TO THESE ISSUES - it has excellent adhesion and flexibility properties - it sprays at low pressure through airbrush or touch-up gun AND it can even be brush applied !! If this is your first time coloring leather or vinyl or if you are an experienced technician give VARIKOLOR WATER- BORNE COATING A TRY - IT IS UNMATCHED IN IT'S VERSATILITY AND PERFORMANCE!!

I had previously purchased your spray cans about 12 years ago & did the interior of my 1972 Rolls Royce. This time I purchased a litre of "Varikote", along with a small spray gun from Princes Auto to do my Jaguar XJS. The color match was exact, the ease of application was effortless and above all, the final results were most satisfying. Phil Karam Ottawa

VARIKOTE

Thanks for the patience and guidance in helping me restore the interior on my car. The color change is unbelievable. The color which we used looks fabulous and like new. You cannot tell that the interior was re-dyed. Many of my friends are so impressed with what I was able to accomplish with your product Varikote that they have asked me for your details so that they too can customize their interiors. Soon I will start restoring my other cars and will call you for pricing on quantity purchases and special color matching. Once again, thanks for all your help. Sincerely, Bill N'Guyen

VARIKOTE

Thought I would let you know how pleased I was with the Varikote I purchased from you. If you recall, I am restoring a 1967 Cougar XR7. The car is from Nevada, and totally rust free, but the interior was faded and cracking in areas, due to sun and heat damage. Unlike some other cars, Cougar interior panels and trim pieces are not reproduced. In order to have the have the quality interior that I wanted for my Cougar, I had to use pieces from my own car, plus 3 other XR7Ős. I now had good interior pieces, but in 4 different colours; blue, black, green, and burgundy. My original interior colour is a dark blue. Fortunately there are a couple of areas where the interior panels are totally covered and that's where an unfaded shade of blue could be found, to use in colour matching. I checked with a company that I used several years back, to re-dye an interior. After two failed attempts by them to match my shade of blue, I brought my sample panel to you.. That's what I should have done in the first place!! Your colour match with the Varikote was perfect. That means a lot to me, because I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist. I have enclosed some pictures to show you how nicely my interior pieces turned out. We dyed 31 pieces from small horn ring pads, to door panels. When spraying on the Varikote, everything covered well, and with only two coats, the sheen of the re-dyed panels looks original as well. It's great to find a product, like Varikote, that works and acts as well as the advertising says it will. Well, enough of my ramblings, I've got more things to do before my Cougar can prowl the roads again. Thanks again for your help. Regards Neil Ward Hamilton, ON

Part of text as it appeared in Jaguar Enthusiast Interior Decorating A DIY restoration of an "S" Type jaguar by Gordon Wright Because I was recolouring to Jaguar dark blue I found that I needed only 2 coats for a perfect result. Colour changing needs more coats - usually about four. Varikote only needs 15 minutes drying time between coats. It is important to apply Varikote in light mist coats only. Never attempt to cover in 1 coat. The total finished interior was a dramatic improvement. Obviously not the same as a complete retrim but in some ways it left the interior looking more authentic. And the difference in price? Well instead of the 3,000 Pounds retrim estimate that I had received, it cost only 113 pounds.

Part of text as it appeared in Power Boating magazine Varikote is formulated to give a brand new look to faded surfaces by adding permanent colour. This product has the ability to penetrate the surface of soft materials, ensuring that the colour will not fade, peel or crack.

Letter by Sea Ray (Service) Subject Varikote: Sea Ray's Product and development and Engineering routinely tests and evaluates products that are new to the market and may be of use to our manufacturing facilities, dealers, and consumers.

Part of text as it appeared in Bodyshop Fix and Finish Spray Restores vinyl upholstery: Varikote is a spray-on refinishing and recolouring coating for vinyl, leather and PVC that can provide a low-cost alternative to reupholstery or otherwise replacing the material. Varikote actually penetrates the substratum of the material and bonds with the upper layer so that it will not crack, chip, run, peel or fade. The natural texture and grain of the material is preserved even if it is recoloured several times.

VARIKOTE

Text as it appeared in Sporting Classics Vinyl & Leather Recolouring An amazing new product has recently appeared on the market. Varikote is capable of totally restoring the colour of vinyl or leather without leaving a telltale glossy finish. Varikote actually penetrates the surface bonding itself to the molecules of the material and changing the pigmentation. This means that it cannot crack, flake off, or wear off. It is permanent and even the grain of the vinyl, or leather is left in perfect relief. A recent demonstration at the MG Car Club of Toronto’s Autojumble had a vinyl seat prepared in different coloured strips such that it was impossible to determine the original colour. An examination of treated pieces of vinyl and leather graphically showed the difference. Conclusion: Varikote will restore or change your faded vinyl or leather colour to look like new.

The Empire State Building 350 Fifth Ave, Suite # 6923 New York, New York 10118 U.S.A. Beautiful match and a very nice dye that's easy to work with. Please colour match leather dye (one quart each) for the 2 additional swatches enclosed. Thanks, Mike

VARIKOTE

It was good to see you at the British car day. It reminded me that I must send you this long overdue thank you. Perhaps the fact that 2 years have passed since I sprayed the seats of my favourite car that 1976 Jaguar XJ6 2 door coupe. The match to my small leather cutting was perfect and the fact that Varikote was so easy to apply, had me spraying the door panels and parts of the dash that I was originally afraid to attempt. Even after all the scuffs and scratches from the mechanics, it’s easy to touch up with a bit of dye I still have left over for emergencies. Time has proven how well your product stands up to abuse and I’m still proud to say I was able to do it myself. So a belated thank you. I have recommended Varikote and your good eye in matching colors to many of my friends in the Ontario Jaguar owner’s assn. Sincerely, John Barr Toronto, ON

I just wanted to take a moment and thank you for all your help with the order I placed with Parasol. You made the process much easier and took the time to explain the process for using the prep, paint and final conditioner to use on our newly painted parts. I would recommend you to anyone who might need your products. Linda Brooks Pataskala, Ohio

As per your product Varikote, it is one of the best dyes I have ever used, it was simple to apply and very durable. It saved me a lot of time and money, as I would have had to take all the door panels off. I simply masked the area not to be painted and the results were amazing. I will strongly recommend this product to all my friends and fellow enthusiasts. Shaz Syed Ancaster, Ontario
