Step 11: Install New Wheel

Happy motoring!
<p>Awesome tutorial, thanks! My fianc&eacute;e and I followed this guide when we retrimmed the steering wheel in my Toyota MR2 project, and it came out great.</p><p>One thing I will add is that if you're using a material that only stretches in one direction (like Alcantara) be sure to cut it so that it stretches around the circumference of the wheel, otherwise it wont fit, as we found out on our first attempt.</p><p>You can watch our retrimming on the latest episode of our build log - <iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="281" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/EsGeGKm58kg" width="500"></iframe></p>

<p>Wow, looks great. I'd love to do this to my 4-spoke e38 wheel </p>
<p>Can you send the measurements and pattern of this steering wheel. I have the same one in my e34 but I got it without old leather.</p>
Would like to know how to do the M color stitching; blue and red
This was a great guide, but I was also interested in how to do the stitching... for those that are interested I managed to find a baseball stitching guide here: http://navyaviation.tpub.com/14218/css/14218_243.htm
Great job. <br>I wish there were more detail on how to do the stitching.
where did you learn to do that cross stitch around the inside perimeter? Any links to help in learning how to do that?
I am also interested in the stitch that you used in the inside to secure the new cover. Also, what thread did you use for the sewing and the securing? It looks pretty thick. Thanks for posting this.
Wow. Great job! and nice choice on the material.
This is awesome, great instructable. I'm trying to think of a material to substitute leather/suede. I would like to stay away from vinyl or other petroleum derived material as well. Does anybody have any good ideas for a natural, animal friendly material that feels good and would hold up to steering wheel abuse?
nice!Im gonna do this on my Nissan
This and the gear gator are both impeccably well timed! I have been looking at ways to tidy up my sim racing wheel, I have an old &quot;The Other Luxury German Marque&quot; rim that's seen much better days to mod onto it. Wanted to re-trim the gator to match. <br> <br>Many thanks, cracking job.
Clean looking e30! And excellent work on your wheel. I may give it a shot... Where did you find the material?
<br /> Very nice!<br /> <br /> Now...can you do mine..? :-)
