Baron, I bought a steering wheel cover for the Bonneville, or in a pinch, use those Armor All All purpose wipes, comes nice and clean. Then get a new steering wheel cover. Or leather gloves Chix dig guys with leather gloves

I must hold mine tighter or something, I'v got about 3 inches at the top and about half inch at the bottom. Ok now why does that not sound so good. Im meaning my steering wheel sicko'*.
I'v called a couple leather repair places, i guess theres a leather dye you can get, but it seems like it only comes in a spay can. I'll check it out more tomorrow. You ever take your steering wheel off?

You NEED to disarm the system. Disconnect the battery, the airbag system fuse, and then WAIT 1/2 an hour, cause it stores energy incase it needs to off of the engine/battery is turned off/severed. www.PFYC.com has some sweet covers at good prices.
