Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content

hi, anyone ever heard of people using some kind of paint on the steering wheel and gear shift, just that when i bought my ls400 the previous owner was keen to mention how little wear was on these parts, however after owning the car for a couple of months it seems to all have worn off and on closer inspection i could see brush marks and now im left with tan very worn wheel, and after letting a leather specialist have a look he said its too far gone to be restored so he sugested painting it (like the last owner) but apparently the previous job was done with some kind of boot polish type stuff and thats why it came off, this guy suggested using a ordinary car paint but mat finish, and apply very carefully with a brush, so cautiously (knowing where i can get another wheel) i painted it in the same colour it would have been origionaly and guess what it works perfectly, unless you knew what to look for you would never know, exept i wanted a funky look so i laqueered it too, always remains slightly sticky so using the wheel is no problem for grip but it looks excellent.
