Do it yourself!

I got my cover from redlinegoods.com and then did the foam padding, gluing and stitching myself:

Knowing I'm OCD about small details, I really really really want it to look oem. I already have this steering wheel in alcantara, I wan to try and get it in leather now :



And I know I'll lose my calm stitching this. But what I plan to buy the leather and try it once myself, I kept the used Alcantara material to have a guide when cutting the new material.

I find it expensive at redlinegoods, the ask 169$ usd, I can probably get a new m tech 2 steering wheel for a little bit more.

That's a great looking OEM wheel. Also interested in the leather. Do let me know how you make out with obtaining one.

Cool, cool.

That looks nice!

I just wanted something grippy that matched the car for track use, so I shelled out a bit of dough for those Cars and Coffee points.

I absolutely want to keep all oem parts.

For the clear lights, it's a question of taste. I hate the 3 colour combo on the tail lights. But love the amber in front.





I actually find that clear corner lights look cheap.
