I would kill for a saddle 1968 steering wheel pad. Today I looked up the number C8AZ-3623-A1F and also noted the dreaded "death star" in the Master parts Catalog. In other words, the saddle pads were never serviced. Quite possibly the holy grail doesn't exist. Now the Question, on the original some of the grain is worn smooth, the vinyl dye did not soak in. Is there a way to open up the vinyl, so it takes???

Would taking a Scotch-Brite pad on it make it a bit porous and allow the dye to soak in? I'd try that.

yeah there is a vinyl prep that is sprayed before dying. It acts like lacquer thinner cleans and opens up the pores. Most mustang vendors carry it

I used "Dupont Platinum Primer" which made the old surface tacky for the new dye.

Eastwood sells vinyl prep stuff from SEM that i used on my '68 pad that was light gold and i switched to black - did a beautiful job with no elaborate preparation. looks like out of the factory.
