Steering wheel retrim, quick turnaround.

For Herman Yellow, looking to get sports design 991 PDK steering wheel retrimmed (with added girth) yellow stitch and 12 o clock band.

Only thing is need a guaranteed quick turnaround by end of November latest and of course a top job! Any ideas?

Alcantara is nice for the first while but when it starts to wear its ugly. Leather stays 'fresh' for much longer and ages more gracefully. Given your re-sale history, I'd suggest leather.. Smile

Hand I would say there is not much in the wear or even alcantara wears better. Alcantara is easy to clean up to new whereas once leather wears it wears. Plus on a hobby car Alcantara just feels more special Wink

However given the amount Sponge uses his cars I doubt the bubble wrap will come off wack

To be fair the mileage will probably never start with a 3 Grin. I’m airing towards leather I think, smart with yellow stitching a the old yellow ring.

It’s strange normally when I buy a new motor (which is alot) I look around at others and think cr@p I should of bought that one instead! Not the case with Herman Yellow, can’t find anything I’d rather have! WTF!!

Plus now I’ve told mrs Sponge it seems real Surprised
