Yes? No?

A custom steering wheel is outta my reach. What do the members think of this steering wheel cover?

Thank you.

I wrapped mine recently with a new cover from China, turns out our wheels are exactly the same as a Passat or Skoda wheel of the same era... go figure...

It came out pretty well, few wrinkles around the top curve but that's entirely my fault as it's the first time I'd tried doing it. There's also a few slightly more expensive one's available on there with suede, a line at the top etc. For the price I might just get another and try again some time.

How long did it take to do the sewing? Watched a video a while back and it looked fairly simple if you take your time... But you know how that goes...
I don't think that looks too bad though.. You might be a pro your second go at it..

Probably took about 4 hours... it's pretty easy when you get in a rhythm but my needlework's a bit rusty
