Did you recover your steering wheel?

If so, which cover did you use? Do you like it? Can you post a pic?

Thanks

Just buy a nice lace-on leather steering wheel cover. I've had one on my TJ for 10-11 years now and it's just now starting to show a little wear at the top. You can find them in sports car catalogs, some auto parts stores, eBay, etc. Just be careful to buy a good quality leather cover as some are vinyl and they'll both look bad and make your hands sweat.

How about one of them big fuzzy ones at walmart? keeps your hands all nice and toasty on them cold mornings. Mexicans in taxi cabs swear by them.

No idea on the brand, it was just something I picked up at a local store that specialized in sports car accessories, sheepskin seat covers, etc..

Yeah, I put some electrical tape on mine but didn't like how sticky it got so I ended up enlisting a friend who was going into Yucca Valley to get me a cover. Now my rig sports a fresh and fancy Hello Kitty steering wheel cover.

I used a leather stretch & fit one from schmuckschecherkracken. looks good, feels good, no lacing to deal with and smells like a cow.

We are currently looking for a Bedazzler to add more good design to my helmet. I figure if I'm going to be safe in certain situations I might as well have fun with it.

I like it, but that look won't work for everyone. You're lucky you can pull it off. As an added touch a mutilated or burned barbie doll would look good hanging from the rear view mirror.

HA, I don't have a windshield anymore. Honestly the Hello Kitty will probably come off soon. I have a Grant wheel to put on, just haven't done it yet. I'll be sending the Kitty cover to Tiny.

I just got one of them vinlyl stretchy ones that don't require lace. It's been OK so far.

Thanks guys. You have all been very helpful

Seriously thought, I bought my TJ used and am not thrilled about the thin, worn steering wheel. I like Grant wheels but I would prefer to keep my airbag as my daughter will be driving "Sonny" in a year or so.

I found a guy who actually did recover his steering wheel. It looks very nice and the secret is he had it done professionally. So, even though it would be really really cool to use pink fur or Hello Kitty I think I will stick with leather.
