Steering wheel colour

Hi all,

Does anybody know what colour die is needed for a laser steering wheel and where I could get it as mine is looking a bit grubby and thought with the car being off the road it would be a good time to do those little jobs.

Cheers Allan.

Electric aerial problem.

Electric aerial won't go up or down, I can hear the motor running both ways but nothing happens. Is there any way to repair it as it is original.

Cheers Allan.

Re: Cutting out when hot

Will need to buy another condenser as the other one was shot as it would not start at all. Can't understand how it cuts out but starts straight back up at turn of the key.
