Steering wheel re-trim

Recommended Posts

Was planning on getting my steering wheel re-trimmed by Jack at Royal Wheels. The problem is the bottom plastic trim part (where the M badge is) has marks on it. I think this will be even more evident once Jack works his magic on the rest of the wheel.

Can anyone suggest a way in which I can restore this part of the wheel please?

Thanks

I'm sure we aren't the only two ;)

And the good thing is, I can steal fixes and ideas from your build thread :D

I would imagine vinyl wrap would be be the best way of masking this, unless you do some type of polyfill sand spray job but I'm making it up now (!)

That actually looks like it would match the standard carbon trim in my car. Have you done this ?

To be honest, it isn't on mine either. I just like to have a plan worked out for everything im planning on doing.

Swirl flaps, manifold de-coke and engine whistle tomorrow :)

Would anyone happen to have a link to the vinyl wrap I would need to match my trim please?

It is the same as the one in the link kindly provided above and referred to as " carbon cube from the sport and has a cf feel to it" on the thread liked to.

Thanks

This is the colour of the rest of my trim that I would like to match the steering wheel wrap to. Does anyone have an eBay link to a match please?

Take it off, rub it down with 600 w&d, couple of coats of plastic primer, then a couple of coats of Halfrauds black Plastic Bumper Paint. Job's a good 'un! :thumbsup:

I done mine with black aluminium vinyl from eBay, think it was like £1.99

Really please with the result, planning on ordering more and doing the rest of the interior
