    Hi all, has anyone had any dealings with these stitch/sow on steering wheel covers?

    I can't afford to buy a new steering wheel or get a professional to re-colour it
    I have tried twice to re-colour it myself (with a kit from Buffalo) but it doesn't last to long before going sticky :crazy: again, may be a few months.

    you need to have a look at the post i just put up about doing my leather.
    the most important bit is using a sealer. ive just done my 2 tone drivers seat and headrest covers

    I've fitted a leather wheel cover to my W208. Good quality leather and the colour also a good match.

    I believe the instructions advise the stitching every other punched hole. I stitched every hole and the result I think is a far more original looking finish.
