84 Trans Am steering wheel

My steering wheel needs new leather, and itís going to cost close to $400 to have that done. I looked at aftermarket steering wheels, and I didnít find one I liked. I want to stay with a white steering wheel too. Before I ship this thing off, does anyone know a good shop that would wrap new leather for less?

I had my 84 wheel re done for about 200 dollars. I shipped it out and had it back in about a week. I can give you their contact info. I posted about it in my thread https://www.thirdgen.org/forums/ltx-...on-recaro.html

I shipped my steering wheel just before I read your message. Oh well. I look forward to the new leather. Soon, Iíll have my recaro seats professionally recovered. If I canít find one locally, Iíll check out the shop you used. Shipping would be expensive, though.

What'd it cost? Looks great! I think I've got a good gray 3-spoke core, I need to have done one of these days...

Re: 84 Trans Am steering wheel

Thanks - It was $379. The price seemed high at first. After seeing the results, I think it was worth it.

Re: 84 Trans Am steering wheel

I installed the steering wheel today, and it looks good. Iíll have to remember to wash my hands before driving since the white leather is so clean. Soon, it will be time to have my recaro seats professionally recovered. And that ainít going to be cheap!
