You need to clean the steering wheel with SEM Soap really good, and just use a grey Scotch Brite pad instead of the sandpaper. You are really just trying to get anything off the steering wheel that will prevent the Classic Coat from adhering to the leather, and open the pores a little bit.

Thanks for the reply! My local parts store only had the coating and none of the prep stuff, I've had them order the SEM Soap and Leather prep. When it all gets here I'll give it a whirl.

What you need to watch out for is any coating that may have been put on the leather to protect it.

I have a leather supplier that has a coating they put on some grades of their leather. I dyed some of the leather and a lot of the color came off very quickly, even though I had cleaned it well. If it comes down to choice of getting the coating off or saving the grain, make sure the coating is off.
