Do a search for GSRStilez (Sean Bush). He's in CT but may be able to visit NYC. His work and integrity are top notch. He's moved into pharma sales for a big company but still does the occasional detail. Expert technique.

Bump with some follow-up on maintaining alcantara.

The pilling on my alcantara-wrapped steering wheel continued to drive me crazy.

While perusing some posts on ferrarichat.com regarding the new 430 Scuderia with its mostly alcantara interior, I noticed someone question whether it would hold up well or soil/pill quickly. Another poster piped up with "just run an electric razor over it every once in a while and voila - good as new".

Finally got around to picking up a cheap Remington at Target last weekend and gave it a try.

Cha-ching. Worked like a charm.

Very interesting. That makes some sense but is an unusual solution. Good job!

Would I really want to do that on my new $180K Ferrari? Probably not. Luggage interior and that is it.

It's far better to get leather anyways, the people Ferrari / Pininfarina are masters with leather.

Their subcontractor Schedoni are the real masters.

Depends on the car. A for-real track car - no. A daily driver GT car - yes.

Pininfarina may have a hand in designing the interior but would not be involved at all in the execution/manufacturing - which, more often than one might think, can be underwhelming.
