    Aaron, if the leather is not in danger of falling apart I would leave as is. Just make sure the room it is in, is a climate controlled room. And as said a classic m42. Marty

    Nice lid. Better now that you have it in hand. Happy for you.

    Yes, Ballistol makes leather dark, but soft, that for me is the most important thing. Then,with the time, the treated leather returns more clear....

    Very nice pick up. I'd be inclined to leave it be as
    well. Looks great as it is.........!

    Me too, if it isn't disintegrating before your eyes, it is best left alone IMHO.

    A nice lid at a nice price!

    I wouldn't be treating the leather, whatever natural oils the leather may have had are long gone and trying to replace them now is likely to lead to rot.

    I always thought Ballistol was used for cleaning/lubing guns, as far as i know it's a mineral based oil so personally i wouldn't use it on leather, but if you've had good results fair enough!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Ballistol has many purposes. Ideal for metal, wood and also for leather goods. A very great product for me, that I always have at home......
