Recovering Steering Wheel

89 GTA. Would like to recover the steering wheel. Wondering what others have been doing about these steering wheels? Thanks.

I just got a tasteful steering wheel cover, it will never be re-done as well as the factory leather in my opinion.

Re: Recovering Steering Wheel

Local upholstery shops cannot recover this wheel because the leather has to be formed to the hub.

dallassterringwheel.com has the exact correct GTA/TTA wheel available for $359. I have not seen one in person, but it's the best looking one I have ever seen online.

I saw your thread and your steering wheel turned out great! Unfortunately, the leather has been removed from this wheel already.

Had mine done there, as well as my shift knob and e-brake handle. They did a great job.

Ahh, the place in Dallas does nice work, but pricey, other option is to wait for a parts car to pop up and get one.
