    Exclamation Steering Wheel Scratch ??

    I noticed a load of scratches on the underside of my steering wheel today

    It must have been something that i was wearing that was rubbing on it somehow

    They look a bit deeper in real life than they do in the pics:











    Does anyone have any ideas on how i would fix them?

    My wedding ring occasionally catches the gear knob and steering wheel, and I've never managed to remove the marks. Treating the leather will help disguise it slightly.
