where to get some UV light spray for suede

I just recovered my headliner and pillars in black suede, and was wondering about any products that are good at protecting the suede from the suns UV rays that cause fading.

i am pretty sure the only thing that will save you in this case is window tint. i did my rear speaker shelf in the e30 in suede, and within 3 months it was extremely faded. window tint blocks uv rays! havent heard of a product for suede that protects it from uv rays.

Hey Wes R thanks for the info. Do you know if it will actually change the suede's appearance and feel after I apply it. Ive heard that some products make the fabric darker

To be honest I've never really applied it to suede just the carpet and cloth seats and they stayed the same.

What I would suggest is do a small test spot and see how it turns out and if your gonna go ahead with it put it on lightly in layers rather then just dump a whole lot on.
