    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone can offer me advice on how to repair the black covering/coating on my steering wheel trim which has peeled/scratched away. I've taken some pics, but now sure how to upload these for you all to see?

    I've read the threads on removing the trim and covering it with carbon vinyl, but this does not appeal as I don't particularly want to do too much dismantling, not being the best at these kinds of jobs.

    I also have some scratches on the gear lever knob which is silver. Does anyone have any suggestions on repairs or recoating maybe? Or would I be better off replacing it completely?

    As always, any advice and/or suggestion would be gladly welcome.

    Thanks,

    Ash.

    I vinyl wrapped mine, pretty easy to do really

    If you not keen on taking stuff apart, you could wrap it in situe (but this might be hard if you aint done it before)

    Or you could use some paint to touch it up, depending on how bad it is, post you pics up

    To up load photos go to: http://tinypic.com/ upload your pic, copy the code that says for forum and paste it in
