New Steering wheel arrived!

Well after waiting for a couple of weeks, my new wheel arrived. I opted to keep it the same leather combo as stock except for the addition of the red stitching. I'll take some photos once its installed.



Cheers

Mark

Darn it Mark! How many boxes do you get each week? j/k!

The steering wheel looks awesome! If you don't mind me asking, how much moola does that run you to reupholster?

For a while there I was getting waaaay too many boxes delivered. Even my children were laughing because the FedEx and UPS drivers would stop by on days when I didn't get a box just to say "hi" and see how the project was coming along.

I'm pretty much at the end of the project so I'll have to live vicariously through you on yours!

Cheers

EDIT: The cost was about $300 to recover the wheel.

Yeah...ur 986 is just about perfect. Not a whole lot more I would do either.

$300 isn't bad to recover the steering wheel. I will hit you up for the shop later on in the year when I free up some "car" $.

That is REALLY nice wheel. Hard to find a covering that well done.
