Sorry should of mentioned, I would like to clean it up, bring back some of the colour if I can. Also noticed a few cracking in the rubber not sure if they can be treated or should be patched. I have seen some photos online of before and after and some look nearly new after. I don't want perfect just to look a bit more tidy.

A wipe over with MEK solvent or acetone and then a few coats of a good conditioner/protector, and she will look far better - check out our cleaning guide

'Cracking of rubber'? Any pics?

Cheers
