Wheelskins cover

Post by BatCruzer » Tue Mar 14, 2017 8:13 pm

I installed a black leather Wheelskins steering wheel cover. I like the extra thickness it gives the wheel and overall a more custom look.

This is the 2nd cover I've installed on one of my cars, and while I can say enough about the quality of the kit, my install skills fall short. The cover itself is very strong with holes that dont begin to show signs tearing no matter how hard you pull. The stitching cord is equally strong but my downfall is in technique.
I can pull the gaps closed but trying to hold that while stitching the next hole is difficult, especially near the spokes where stretching the cover is required.

If anyone has better tips I'm all ears, but here is the finished product as of now.

Oh I hate steering wheels that are too thick :D

I can't really give you any tips but I would think over time it should smooth out some as you have your hands all over it ... ??
