    Hey guys where can I find a factory Steering wheel and just the center console lid for a 96 cobra ? I've checked Resto, TMI and other sites cant seem to find any...I'm a bit baffled. Thanks, I'm just trying to clean up my interior a bit !

    Junk yard, eBay, mustang classifieds.

    Do you have an existing wheel and lid? Could always get them redone by redline goods.

    skip redline goods and go with http://www.dallassteeringwheel.com/ if you do have your wheel and lid. turn around is a lot faster and better quality wheel wrapping imo. the console lid covers from redline are a joke. they fit like shit!

    I don't think [MENTION=11896]ttocs[/MENTION] and other members have had issues from redline.

    he said before he had to do some tweeking for the lid cover to fit. i've seen some wheel covers/wraps look ok and some look like crap.

    By tweaking I meant I took the cover off of the console and then used some light adhesive to ensure it didn't move. I would have done that with any one I got really. Been really happy with my wrap as well, I thought you were the one complaining about the wrinkles we all hoped would work their way out? They are both great vendors with good product I would not bad mouth either myself.

    yea the wrinkles are nearly all out just from sitting in my attic. i couldn't imagine just shooting some adhesive on the redline arm rest cover i got from them lol. it seriously fit like it would if i just threw a hair net on it.

    If I had my way it would not have had the elastic on the bottom and I could have just used the adhesive to hold it and the lid where it screws on, but if I didn't like it I would not have got a 2nd one from him.

    I don't have a steering wheel from Redline - but I do have the arm rest. It turned out just fine for me. I haven't put many "miles" on it yet, but it seems like it will be just fine :dontknow: While I thought it would, the elastic didn't really bother me that much. After I installed it, you can't even tell.

    yea mine was too big. i had to take the plastic underside off...pull the leather tight and hot glue the shit on lol. seemed more like a universal lid cover than an sn95 specific piece.

    Oh that sucks. Mine seemed to fit very well - if anything, it was a touch too small, which was perfect for me because I could stretch it more to keep it smooth. I removed the plastic underside of the arm rest, tucked the elastic "band" under that pulled tight, then tightened the plastic underside down with its screws - seemed to hold it very well. I haven't used it much yet, so maybe my elbow moving around it will cause wrinkles, but so far it looks good. Maybe yours got made a little too big? Maybe the material has something to do with it as well? :dontknow:

    mine was super tight/small as well. Something obviously went wrong with tonys and I know if its messed up he would fix it by sending a new one if he knew. He had one slight detail off on mine and when I told him he said he would have another one out to me in a few days to correct it.

    hmmmm....idk man. i kinda just assumed they were all made the same lol. i shoulda posted pics of it when i first put it on. also i asked for the shifter boot to be an inch smaller in height because i have a short throw....held it next to my oem shift boot and it was a tad longer :angry: which was no bigy...just more material to tuck away. great quality leather though i will say that. car still smells like new leather even in the paint shop :p
