As much as the relic look is fine in some cases, the Cirrus really needs to be loved. Those basses are too sexy by half.
The steel wool thing is a fine idea, but don't overdo it. Use new 0000 steel wool (old stuff can leave stains) and rub gently with the grain. Pushing too hard might make dips in the surface, and that's no good. Also, be sure to cover your pickups with masking tape before you get the steel wool anywhere near your bass. You don't want to have to deal with picking the tiny little bits of steel off the magnets.
I don't know a whole lot when it comes to the tung oil, but any bottle you buy should have fine instructions.
Keep that Cirrus lookin' sexy.
