Scott,
I have a pretty good condition gray one for sale. An alternative is wheelskinz from JC Whitney. They look really nice but I don't know if they sell the skins in gray or not.

Redoing it will cost approx. $250 from what I've found.

www.american-stitches.com




If you just want to restore the existing leather, check out www.leatherique.com, they make excellent products, and can get your steering wheel looking like new, even if it's ratty. Follow their directions and use the products they suggest.

Pics of my uncle's BMW E28's interior. He used leatherique products on the entire interior, including the steering wheel. Crack filler was used and everything was redyed, etc.




If you're going to do the steering wheel, I suggest getting their Klear Kote stuff, it will protect the dye from your hand oils, or if you happen to have something on your hands, like bug spray or something.

I'd definitely want to see his work before having him do it. Just a thought, but most local upholsterers won't be able to do a steering wheel very well.

I disagree, wheelskins have nothing on a properly wrapped wheel, IMO. It's definitely up to the person as to whether they want it, but I know I would never put one on mine.

I think wheelskins for less than $20-$30 is your best option, with you ensuring the quality like isnms pic. Paying $150+ for a properly wrapped wheel is kinda silly, unless you are really, really, really trying to restore to a factory look.

a note about the wheelskin: Use size AXX if installing over the old existing cover. Make sure you get any burs are smoothed off or you will feel them through the cover.
If you you remove the old cover, they suggest size AX.
I left my old one on.

Several places online sell them, just search Wheelskin.
