Today I removed a few water spots from the front hood with Meguiar's ScratchX 2.0. Then rewaxed it with P21S Concours Carnauba Wax to protect the paint.

ScratchX 2.0 its a very light product (clear coat safe) that won't damage the paint

That looks beautiful!!
Great work.
I love the sports steering wheel. Just fitted the same one on my 911.
Did yours come with it, or did you fit it yourself?

To stay in the P21S family you can clean the paint with P21S Cleanser - HERE.

Mine is stock, option code: 840 SportDesign Steering Wheel

This is one of the most beautiful steering wheels of all times IMO.

I like the vintage look and the paddles are so practical!

Re Leather careů as sparingly as possible and never Lexol if you want to preserve the matte/low sheen new look. I only use
Sonus (Cleaner and Conditioner) Sonus (Cleaner and Conditioner)
- works great, as per instructions and a little goes long way.

Thanks, I will try the sonus conditioner next time but I am very happy with lexol products.

I only clean the leather once a year or so since I don't drive much and I always try to avoid black jeans when I take her for a spin.

I have been using lexol for years with no-shiny look results. The trick is to let the conditioner sit for a few minutes and wipe it off with a dry microfiber towel.

I didn't think that the wide body offset OEM wheels would work 100% on a narrow body, great to know as I'm looking for a set just like yours.

Cheers
