Mine was bit faded and worn around the spokes where countless sweaty thumbs have been placed over the last 20 yrs or so.
So wanting to retain some patina, I thought I'd have a go myself. The alternative (Royal Steering Wheels | Exclusive look, unique feeling
) produce a stunning job and not expensive, but I'm not after the new look.
I like the idea of the gentlemen's brogue look. Cared for, polished, repaired as required, can be worn anywhere, but never ever new.
So started with a good clean, soap water and nail brush. Then Methylated spirit, to remove any residue wax and oils.
Mask up the air-bag
Then this https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01BLIFXLU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1You just dab it on with a sponge and dry with a hair-dryer. I did a number of light coats, hot air gun set to minimum between each.
The result a nice matt, even finish, which I prefer to the shiny MB leather.
Before and after below, my photography's not much good so from the pics you can't see a huge difference, behind the wheel however
