Leather Steering Wheel Restore

I had a piece of leather left from the door cards I replaced recently so decided to give it a try and make a cover for my steering wheel.

It was difficult to cut the right pattern...

Here is the final result, never done it before...I am only a general surgeon...lol

Re: Leather Steering Wheel Restore

Nice... a bit..

The colour looks strange next to the airbag cover/wheel centre (it also doesn't help that the airbag cover is plastic) but otherwise that's not bad work.

Re: Leather Steering Wheel Restore

Does the horn still work with the extra thickness of leather under the airbag?

I thought that the use of horn is forbidden...especially here in Greece! LoL

The horn still working with the leather in place.

@ Ralf s the strange leather color matches the leather color at the door cards.

Re: Leather Steering Wheel Restore

I'd echo what Ralph says - not really a fan of the colour at all but that's personal taste. Can't doubt your craftsmanship! Very nicely done.

Re: Leather Steering Wheel Restore

I can understand that most of you would prefer the black color...but I wanted to match it with the doors.
