The reproofing wax showed up today:
looks more like an original now. The wax went on easily and I used the whole can, though I don't think I was sloppy with it. It will probably take a few days for the material to soak it up.
I also dressed up the leather findings while I was at it, they were stiff as an old boot. For that I used Montana Pitch Blend, a product I learned about from a forest service packer.
