Default Stearing wheel

I have a 1992 SSEI with about 100k on it. The finish on the leather steering wheel is worn through. How can I fix this ? Can I lightly sand it and paint it with some leather
restoration paint ? I want it to look as stock and new as possible.

Oh, steering wheel... Best bet is to get one of those wheel covers that wrap around the wheel and tie. I painted mine and it lasted for all of 5 miles.

Correct... I tried the paint once too...total flop

the leather steering wheel cover is the way to go here, but don't buy any of that cheap crap get a good quality one and then take your time installing it. I've done it several times and they can look as good as stock
