Today’s efforts was the remote, I should have taken some before photos, it really was in a state , an extended soaking in gunk and a good jet wash would not remove the dried oil and grease, I had to slice it off with a blade and scrape it before it was onto the bench grinder , worth the effort as it’s turned out so well . Just the gear knob to sand down and varnish to finish, I know it’s not the correct original but it was on the GT when I bought it and I kind of like it to be honest.

Great result! Try and get hold of some saddle soap, works wonders on leather!
