Interesting about the steering wheel.  My urq has sat for long periods
before and I don't recall it getting fogged as quickly.  The
difference this time is a newly installed steering wheel from a
different model, I think an old CGT, the big wheel with the narrow
spokes and smaller horn pad.

Oh well, I'll just keep driving it and take care of the problem that way.
