King Ranch Steering Wheel Leather Overlay

Today I started a new project. My steering wheel leather has a spot that was worn through and the rest looks like chit. I saw on Ebay someone had a kit for $75. I thought I could do it a lot cheeper. I looked for the king ranch leather and found a large piece for around $400. It was enough to cover 100 steering wheels. I found a remnant at a leather store that was close to the King Ranch color. I also picked up a pack of needles and some black thread. This is what it looks like after I did the bottom part. I wish I had a picture of the wheel before I put it on. Tomorrow I hope to get the top section done. I will have enough leather leftover to do more projects. Thinking the grab handles and what ever else I can find.

That's not bad, did you remove the old leather?

No I went over top. I looked at that but I think if you cut the lacing on the leather it would also unravel the rest of the lacing on the wheel. I like the extra leather on top, it makes for a better grip.

Nice man, looks pretty good, why didn't you just get a steering wheel cover?

I wanted to keep with the King Ranch style. I don't find covers that attractive either. I've got about 1.5 hrs in it.

I think the paint is coming off, from what I can tell. Thought about trying to match the color and paint it.
