    Default Steering Wheel Reconditioning

    hey guys one of the services i offer is steering wheel refurbishment , if your twin cam wheel or nardi wheel is fading,worn or stitching is coming loose i can re vinyl dip it.
    benefits of this is that the vinyl dip i use will never fade,crack or peel off. its chemical and water resistant too.
    it does not feel sticky in your hands even on a hot day but still allows your hands to have good grip when you need it.
    pics tell a thousand words. this wheel had a small gash and blotches of its original finish was faded/peeling. if your cover has excessive perishing or cracking the finish may not turn out so well. i'd be willing to have a good go at it though.








    i could also dip the horn pad but would lose the orange twin cam 16 logo. looks more glossy in photos.
    price for this service is $65.00, turn around time is one week max. eventually i'd like to have change over units.

    hey clay sorry i've been meaning to update this with services offered, just have not had the time yet.
    can do door trims, seat recovering and dont have the facility's yet for a proper dash reskin. however could do a sewn dash but dont think they looks as nice as a well done vac skinned dash.
    i'll get onto making up a new thread in the next couple of days

    sorry still have not had time to update my thread yet, i have a twin cam wheel minus horn pad that i can do a change over deal with (same one thats in the photo), so you drop off yours and take one thats done. same price providing yours is in similar serviceable condition.
    i've been using mine now for over 2 years with no fade or deterioration in condition. so in a way i'd say this is better then new leather, and alot cheaper then re trimming.

    I've got a suede steering wheel I been meaning to replace because the 12 and 9 is worn and filthy. So, can you do suede? Also, it has a yellow steering wheel position/angle marker, can you coat that in another colour to retain that feature? And lastly, are colours other than black available?
