Polishing a Steering Wheel
« on: May 04, 2022, 16:00:44 »
I have a black steering wheel in pretty good shape, but with minor surface scratches.

I've seen a lot of articles on fixing cracks, but not how to just polish these things to remove minor blemishes.

Any thoughts out there?

Thanks, Andy

Though I have not had occasion to polish my black steering wheel, I've had good luck on other plastic items with Novus plastic polish:
