what did you use on the leather??

Jonathan,
I used Formula 2001 Super Protectant. I put a spray head into the bottle, then sprayed some of the stuff on to the seats, then my friend gave me this 10" Polisher/Buffer, I went at the larger areas like seats and doors with it. Then when it came to the smaller areas I used a cloth. Then in the end, I took another cloth and buffed and wiped down all the areas where i applied the protecant.

Its made by Turtle Wax:
"HP-83/5
Formula 2001 Super Protectant
5 Gallon Flex Pak

This revolutionary protectant beautifies and protects vinyl, leather, plastic and rubber. Urethane enriched formula contains Sun Stop® for superior protection against U.V. ray damage. Over 2001 uses; dashboards, vinyl seats, plastic trim, bumpers, window and door molding, splash guards, etc."

I couldnt find a well enough link to it online other than the one at Turtle Wax's website. So here are pics of the bottle with my sprayer modification:

You're rims are fine but get the center caps!

Tints are planned but still need money.
the Black Grille Insert, not sure 100% on yet.
the center cap, my mechanic is still hunting me down one, he cant seem to find the right size.
MB Steering wheel, i dont like the airbag steering wheels, the look pudgy and lack the nice emblem that mine has, if anything i think i could get a wheel--like mine--but with wood on it.
Eurolights, planned, I want to get the ones just like yours, I found a website (it was mentioned here they had a kit for $249--but i lost the link...) I think i am going to keep the amber corners.
When more money comes, more mods will too.

Right now, i just ordered a Pioneer DEH-P80MP Deck to replace my cheapy one.



I payed 276, retails @ 399+.
