I experimented with a new batch of liquid latex on some dried up and crumbling Galli hoods after we discussed this last time..

The result was a kinda of an odd but not altogether bad amber colored gelatinous finish. Problem is it is not durable at all and might be OK for rare use and mostly display only.

Still searching for a real curative for aging gum brake hood covers.........
