Convertible top stain

Vehicle Information: Model: 944S2; Year: 1990; Body Type: Convertible; Total Mileage: 105,000;

There is a pine sap stain on the black top near the driver's side. I need advice prior to applying any product to stain. The stain color has faded somewhat but visible enough to warrant removal. I would appreciate what ever advice you can offer.Thanks

steering wheel covering

I am having the stitching come out of the wheel cover. I have consulted various upolsterers and they are hesitant to work on it. How difficult is it for me to replace the whole three spoke steering wheel cover? I have seen the part listed in a parts catalogue for Porsche.

My console has been scraped by shoes. I want to dye it. The certificate of authenticity saysInterior Material Color/Type:Blue-Leather. What exactly should I be looking for (ie: part number), and where can I get it?

My rear carpets on my cab are faded from the sun coming through the rear window. The carpets look like a bear to remove and spray. Is there a more efficient way to go about this?Thanks- Bill

Polishing stainless steel

Vehicle Information: Model: 996; Year: 2000; Body Type: Convertible; Total Mileage: 58000;

I had a Fabspeed stainless header/exhaust system installed about a month ago, but the entire system now has a light brown tint. This system was polished to a mirror finish from the factory. I have read the other posts about using degreaser and 0000 steel wool, but always in reference to a milled finish. I was worried about the steel wool dulling the surface.Is this the same method you recommend for mirror finishes?Is there any way to prevent or slow this discoloration?Thanks

Fuchs Wheels

I would like to find out what I should use to best clean and shine my stock Fuch wheels. Any comments you care to add regarding their general cleaning and care would be appreciated. I recently started detailing my baby and now I find myself becoming a little compulsive about it. The better it looks, the more I want to improve it.Thanks

993 Cabrio Rear Plastic Window Replacement

Vehicle Information: Model: 993; Year: 1998; Body Type: Targa; Total Mileage: 66,000;

My convertible top is in mint condition but the plastic rear window is separating from the top due to breakdown of the factory heat seal over time. Since the top is in such good condition can the plastic window be replaced without the expense of replacing the entire convertible top.I know that plastic product exists that can be cut to size. Can this be done and sewed into the original top and then placed back on the car?
