Thanks! I didn't realize how dirty they were until I started. Brake cleaner and a wire brush work really well for this job.

Talking Good Steering Wheel Fix

I bought a really good looking steering wheel cover for my '84 944 just after I bought her(O'Reilley's). The sun had deterorated the leather on the old 3-Spoke wheel. The cover worked great for about 6 months, and then it started to slip. And slip, and slip, and slip. The cover had a rubber inside and a leather cover. When spring cleaning time came around, I was cleaning out the kitchen shelves, and lo, and behold, the non-slip shelf liners appeared! They look like a mat of little foam squares. I simply trimmed off some strips, put a little bit of automotive adhesive on the cover, and placed the strips inside the cover and let it set overnight. Today, I installed. Suuweeet! Cush leather wheel with response! Honest, cheap fix to restore our Classics!

ps. I tightened the straps under the SheepSkin seat covers again. They are shot!

pps. I also installed my old LeBra. Her straps are worn, but her Headlights are still shiny!

I hope this helps.

I order 2 liters of ATE Super Blue brake fluid and found some brake fluid that I forgot to clean up last night. It vaporized the paint on my cam tower and now it looks like **** :grr:




All of that hard work for nothing :banghead:

I bought some really nice sport seats for my S2 today. They are in great shape, just a few seams loose. I should be more able to enjoy this car when I can get in and out better. Wife likes them too. Anyone in need of some perfect Recaro Pro fit seats?

Drove it in to work yesterday and today. Swapped out the HVAC panel for one with a working AC button so that I don't have to jamb a toothpick into the old button to keep it engaged. That took all of 15 minutes...

Today is going to be a test to see if the old R12 AC system is still up to snuff. Worked fine yesterday at mid 70's temps, but today will be record temp for this time of year for central Iowa at 95 degrees!!! Hopefully I can hold off on the 134 conversion one more year. I fear I may need to make the leap though.

Installed my oxygen sensor and unpacked my new brake fluid. Hopefully it won't go to waste like last time...

Today I repainted my cam tower, took my car off the jack stands, and attempted to start it with my NA-Tune installed. I wasn't too surprised when it started, idled like **** for 5 seconds, then stalled. I found the battery to be half dead, so I charged it and tried again. No dice. I reinstalled my AFM/stock chip and will see if my car starts tomorrow. If my car runs/drives without the NA-Tune then I'm going to be pretty sad. I really wanted my NA-Tune to work, but my car hates it for some reason...

I repaired two clocks today by cleaning out the internals and replacing both capacitors (35Vdc/100mf), replaced faulty oil pressure gauge lamp, and removed unnecessary (non-factory) wiring from taillight assemblies (thanks PO!). I've also secured two Porsche script seats in wonderful condition so I'll be posting my originals soon in the appropriate location for sale.
