I came across a steering wheel for a good price and decided to try something new. I pulled the steering wheel inserts and covered them with leather. It gives the steering wheel a blackout look. I will drive with it a while and see how I like it.

Looks good. Very well done. I do love my chrome but the glare is a little brutal sometimes.

I really like this, is it hard to do?

All that red in the background really detracts from how cool the wheel really looks!!

:silver::pokey::ssr

In all seriousness, you did a really nice job on it Randy...I like it a lot!! :grin2:

I would like it a lot more if I thought it was a satin steering wheel under there!

**Just noticed you bought a second steering wheel :thumbs

REALLY like it!

How much of a problem removing the steering wheel inserts?
It is not hard but does take some work. I have added a few pictures that might help explain it. Best to remove the steering wheel. There are posts go there that will show you how to do that. Next, the back cover of the steering wheel. This will allow you to get access to the openings so you can push out the control buttons. Once they are out of the way, you can work on the inlays. They are held in place by two clip points that fit down in the control openings, silicone which attaches it to the rubber, and two "hooks" on the end which fit under the steering wheel leather. It becomes a matter of working carefully to get these three areas loose and the inserts out.
