Long story short, my leather steering wheel in my 2008 TTSE FJ Cruiser had seen better days and I really wanted to do something about it.
I really didn't want to have to go through the hassle of removing the steering wheel and sending it off to a company to be professionally re-wrapped and I didn't want a tacky cover from Wal-MArt or anything like that. But then from the following thread I learned about Wheelskins:
Looked like a nice product from the YouTube videos I looked up and from their website: Leather Steering Wheel Covers Manufacturer and Distributor
So I decided to dive in! I first ordered their EuroTone Two Color cover since I wanted to get a 2-tone color scheme that reminded me of the 2012 TT that had red on the steering wheel. I didn't want the perforated option they offer since that isn't my taste but it is cool that they have options like that.
The first one I ordered was white and charcoal which I discovered was a mistake since the charcoal color they offer wasn't close to matching anything on the interior of the FJ even though the interior color scheme of out FJs, like the seats, is "charcoal". So I sent it back and they were nice enough to replace it with a black and white one at no charge.
So then I got the new one quickly and here it is!
I really enjoy the look and the nice feel of the new leather!
Just a tip for your own installations if you decide to go this route, be sure to pull it tight, even tighter than you think possible, and do it from the get go!! They say in the instructions that "Tight is right!" and they are correct. I really didn't get into the right swing of getting it nice and tight so the 2 edges meet snugly until half way through sewing it on so maybe I will redo it eventually but it is good enough for now. It says to leave 6" hanging out in the beginning but when I had finished wrapping my steering wheel I had a couple feet left so give your self some extra slack in the beginning so that way you can re-tighten where you began since when you start it is difficult getting it tight.
So enjoy the pictures and hope this helps others out there!
