    Hi All,
    Had a lovely day today, top down motoring :coolsteer) so when i got home, decided to dye my steering wheel. It is in very good condition but just terribly faded. Been waiting for decent temperatures to do something with it.
    I had found a post where someone had used black liquid polish, so here is the result: Its not sticky after application and looks a great deal better than it did :D

    Looks great what a difference , i know this sounds a bit mad but I've used ordinary boot polish just rub it in and then buff it off
