Lol!

I got tired of my fingers getting black and inadvertently touching the tan leather.

The easy off works great. I guess I need to paint them now. read about a bunch of folks who use this method.

You'd really pucker if you saw me use acetone on the leather to remove my black sticky fingerprints....

Nail polish remover!

It was a little shuddering when a bunch of the tan came off on the towel. But when it dried it looked great. I can't even see it and I'm super anal retentive.

Again it was a suggestion from one of the veteran fchatters!

Love this forum!

mine has p-zero shoes on her, so the leak coupled with piss-poor wet traction, I'll only drive her if I'm away for a weekend and get caught in the rain.

Andrew, I've seen one tiny hole in you logic. Jeff and I live in the UK. If we never went out when there was a chance of rain, we'd never go out at all! My car lives in a carcoon with a dehumidifier inside. If I get caught out she's back in her bubble with the air blowing over her and the dehumidifier turned up. Doesn't take long till she's bone dry again.

They do, just that we fob them off as unimportant, like you lot saying that it's a minor inconvenience when your engine blows up
