    I've given up on trying to find a saddle cobra steering wheel in good shape (ie: new one on ebay right now for $700?!?!?!?!)

    I got my steering wheel off and ready to ship, looking for a shop that someone has used & got quality work out of. So far I've found Craft Customs in TX, and was quoted about $250 for rewrap. they have a pic of saddle mustang wheel they did on their website:

    Open to any other GOOD shop suggestions you've used before i ship this off! thx!

    I can recommend redline leather goods as they have done a lot of work for my including my wheel. they can wrap it like a fr500 if you want or just send you a regular wrap kit that you put on youself. having seen the pics of wraps customers installed it looks like it isn't all that hard. I can also give you a coupon code that should be good for %10 off. But he is in Poland so when I had him wrap mine he found a wheel there funny enough for cheaper then I could here bought it, wrapped it and set it too me. I have an extra if you need one to send.

    I've really been wanting to do redline wrap... love jeremy's steering wheel. Too bad there isnt a light grey suede.

    That saddle wheel is actually nice. I don't miss mine though as it showed every spec of dirt and when I switched to my FR500 the dark charcoal color blended nicely and does not show any hand dirt that I may be carrying.

    That looks great. Suppose they would do a group buy?

    it doesn't look padded to me but I recommend it myself. I never thought I would like it as much as I have but the feeling of napa leather with the padding undr it makes me grin when I grab it.

    I just noticed the price and I assume they wrapped it for you for that price? I am asking because it doesn't look like it was padded nor does it have napa or alancantra/upgraded leather? I had redline do mine with napa leather and padded and had them wrap it for me and I don't think it was a whole lot more even with shipping a wheel from Poland. He makes a kit that he will sent you with the needle and thead that you can put on yourself and save $$$ and honestly the pics I have seen of the user installed wraps look just as good as mine. Its a bit time consuming but I would just take the wheel off and go do it in front of the TV. I use to have a coupon code for %10 off that might still work and I did ask about group buys and he said he would do them if there is enough interest.

    steering wheel re-wraps look to be their 'thing'.....the leather is a little bit softer, but size is just like OEM which is what I wanted. I wasn't looking for the rolls royce of steering wheels, was looking for the CLOSEST to OEM as I could find and that's why I went to them, same reason I went to TMI for seat leathers. And yes, price was for them to do it.

    ok cool I was just curious comparing prices in case anyone else was price shopping as they both look like they do great work. You could call that stock leather but at least in the pics it looks like better leather than ford ever dreamed of doing and probably is and will hopefully last long enough to forget the price.. Redlines kits for the DIY I think start off around $129 for a stock/entry leather and if had the pattern made when I got mine I would have done. I know going through his list of cars that he has hundreds but being in Poland he did not yet have one for a mustang.
