Recovered steering wheels

Recommended Posts

Since owning my CS I've been getting clammy hands when driving it, on track and road :(

Never had this issue with other cars so I put it down to the hard leather from the factory.

I picked up my newly covered one today and I'm very happy. It's from a eBay seller

http://www.ebay.co.uk/ulk/itm/151839597029

He does all different designs, and looking at his work today he seems very good. He is a Polish guy with a passion, was showing me all the threads etc he uses, and why his are better than some other sellers (uses a very nice, thick cord for stitching that's coated so as not to absorb sweat and dirt from your hands and rot) and was keen to show me the quality rubber type foam he uses to give it the padded feel, it's slightly thicker than stock too which I like.

I paid £130 as I collected it, and gave him mine in exchange.

I think the results speak for themselves [emoji106]

I originally wanted the Alcantara but he advised against it as it shows up the grease/dirt very easily.

Some other styles he had in stock too

I didn't think I'd be interested in this but the one that you bought is lovely. I'm now seriously thinking about treating myself to exactly the same one! I bet it feels lovely to drive with, right?

Makes the car feel like it's worth 15k :)

Does it make you feel slim and improve your sex life? If not I'm not buying it.

That was a joke! But I'm now arguing with the devil on my shoulder about if I should do it or not!!

There's also jack at royal steering wheels. Not sure who is better, but he might have a wider range of finishes

So I went with Jack at Royal Steering wheels, he answered emails quicker and seemed more interested. And Jack seems to have a lot of supporters on here which is good enough recommendation for me. Now I have to wait the 10 days for the new wheel to arrive. Arghh!!

My wheels in such a bad state... Need to get mine done ASAP!

What's their quickest turn around I wonder?

I messaged Tiggy on the Monday, and collected it the next day, Tuesday, as I went with one he had in stock.

Remember to use a leather cleaner on your new wheel or it will end up looking shiny and smooth like the old one
