I followed the DIY on here to properly clean the alacantara steering wheel, shift boot, and ebrake boot yesterday on the car. Also cleaned the back seats for the first time in forever. I was about to ditch the steering wheel because it has become so matted down in some areas, but the cleaning definitely brought it back to life.

Looks great spencers!

Grab some solaris invisibulbs from JLeviSW.com and it'll get rid of what orange is left in your corners
