I had one of those dated '80s pine toilet seats.

Gold Hammerite wasn't much of an improvement, tbh.

The off colouring might be the result of exposure to UV light - what type of light bulbs do you have in your bathroom? And do you have a window?

Also, can you identify the make (and better still the model) of the seat?

Thank you Mark.

10 LED GU10's cool white in the room and 4 Windows. I assume it's the sunlight that's done it.

Toilet is a 'Vieany' branded. Bought from Spain 8 years ago.

It doesn't look very practical to sit on if youre chatting to the wife while she is having a bath. A nice unusual feature though.

You're right there, it actually hurts to sit on. Got a nice warm radiator bench to sit on though and a bath for 2+

Our bath panel went the same way, caused by direct sunlight , I sprayed the panel with some white Plastikote rattle can which turned out very well.
Bathroom now completely refurbed with walk in full length shower

Did the plastikote colour last or did it soon go thesame way?

Yes, I did 10 or more bathroom refurbs last year, most of them did away with the bath in favour of a large tray. Seems many people prefer showers nowadays.
