    G'day Gibo
    'Shellite' is a camping fuel used in those pressurized [pump type] camping stoves. Apparently lighter fluid is the same.
    Over here in Aust. you can buy Shellite at Bunnings Hardware Store in the painting section.
    I suppose thinners or Acetone [non-oily] may do the job equally as well.
    Cheers

    You may have to 'Google' it to find where you can get it and if you've got the time it's cheaper getting it from the USA [shipping included]. There's also some handing hints on how to use the product on YouTube.
    Store it in the freezer to prolong it's self-life and place in a cup of hot water when you want to use it.

    If you've used a lot of SnowSeal etc on your boots it may be an idea to clean the repair area with Shellite before glueing.
    Cheers
    Sambar3006, I got my free sole and its the shiznit!!! Thanks for the advice mate my boots are sorted.
    Heaps left in the freezer for next pair too!

    Gibo - there is a boot repair place at Central Parade at Mt Maunganui that does a good job - Shane Barr I think. They have redone eyelets etc, and the repairs are better than the original.
