Steering Wheel Leather

top of the steering wheel has worn through on an 05 excursion. Can an upholstery shop recover this or do I need to replace it?

And I don't want a aftermarket cover or anything like that, so please don't suggest it. I want it to look like it did when it was new

You can buy the leather on ebay and either stitch it yourself or have it done. I'm sure an upholstery shop could recover the wheel as well. For what you spend though, you might be better off just replacing the wheel.

If it is just the dye worn off you can paint it. SEM makes a good interior paint that holds up well. Did mine this weekend, looks like new.

I had to e-mail them but they got back to me in the same day. If you send yours to them, it ends up being around $290 which includes shipping back to you. You can also buy one from them and send yours in as a core when you receive it. It ends up being around $378 and then you get $75 back when they get your core. I checked with an upholstery shop on redoing mine and they wouldn't even touch it.

wheel cover

best on the market is wheelskin, google it, you can get all kinds of colors and two tone, great leather and fits like factory. you have to take your time putting it on, takes about an hour to do but well worth it. make sure you line up the seams and count the holes as you sew it up. front and back so it wont twist. have done several and love them.

I looked into wheelskins but they appear to go over the original leather and I didn't want that.
