Dry cracked leather steering wheel - recondition?

Recommended Posts

The leather on the steering wheel on my Boxster is extremely dried and cracked. It should be replaced, but while I try to locate an affordable 3 spoke wheel and airbag, I would like to clean up this one. It is going to take much more than leather conditioner to treat this condition. The leather feels and looks rough, almost disenigrating on the top. Can it be sanded, followed by restaining? What would you recommend?

Thanks,

Joe

Did you look into Leatherique? Zaino Z10 is very good too.

Go to www.colorplus.com for more ideas.

Don't buy a new wheel. Send it our for refinishing.

Oh, and buy a $7 sunshade at WalMart to protect your interior.

I had the same problem. Did order a custom rebuilt one plus a hand brake rebuilt from http://www.dallassteeringwheel.com/ Took a couple of weeks and sent back my old stuff as a core exchange. I'm very happy with the result.

Griot's Garage makes an excellent and reasonably priced leather reconditioned that can work wonders on old leather.
