I mentioned a while back that I was going to experiment with a 1350 Watt heat gun on Minicell seats.
Just did, worked great on seats carved with a Stanley curved scraper and "dressed" with 80 grit sandpaper. I wound up with a dull grey matted terry cloth look - which is OK too.
For fun, and after a lot of experimentation on scraps, I glazed the surface with the gun. It doesn't change the shape, but gives it a gunmetal grey sheen.
Word of caution - you don't see the burn comming, so keep the gun moving!!!
Best to all.
