    Who sells or do they still sell the old style aniline dye like they used back in the 50`s ? I`m taking the plunge and doing a scratch build of a 59 over the winter and would like to get some dyes that don`t have the anti fadeing like the newer stuff does if possible.

    I'm not sure whether they are "old style", but I used these dyes on a refin recently & they're great! Good value.

    Good luck

    Myself & ExNihilo (Scott) use these dyes. The alcohol version. I got the idea from Scott.

    Tom Bartlett uses Mosers i believe.
