Re: re-wrap steering wheel

Why not just buy a new wheel?

Re: re-wrap steering wheel

You can contact RedlineGoods.com and offer to send them your wheel to have it re-wrapped for free. They don't have a Prelude on their list of steering wheels but there's a link at the bottom to contact them if you're interested.

Re: re-wrap steering wheel

I dunno, email them lol. They offer to send you the cover, or they'll do it for a pretty hefty charge, so I'm assuming it's not the easiest or quickest thing to do it and make it look good.

Re: re-wrap steering wheel

There is also the option of a diy. This guy explains the process pretty well, you'll just need to buy the products:Leather Repair | How to Repair Worn Leather Steering Wheel. All in all I think you could do it for under $40.

I tried something called Leather Magic on my peeling leather wheel and it worked alright. It doesn't have a leathery texture, but it would work alright as a filler for gouges. And now it seems it didn't adhere very well as it's starting to peel again. I'll need to look into something a bit longer lasting. Good luck!

Also, 98whiteSH, keep us posted on their response. I'm interested in what they have to say.

Re: re-wrap steering wheel

I highly doubt a company is going to re wrap it for free unless you have had them re wrap it before.

Re: re-wrap steering wheel

Nothings free. I'd look out for AP1 steering wheels…Those always look sharp in Preludes.

Its not a bad deal, but still more than I wanted to spend. This is what they said...

Hello!
I'd love to make one, I need somebody who would help out though (getting an awesome deal out of it actually).

I need a picture of a wheel so I can see if I can find one locally. Once I do, I can offer the wheel at whatever we pay to acquire it, with the wrap installed, to the first person who orders one. The extra perk is that once you show us pics of it in your car, you get a refund on the wrap.

If we cannot find it locally, we'd ask you to send in yours, but usually, if it is available locally, it's cheaper to buy it over here than for you to send in yours. And your car doesn't get the downtime involved with removing and sending us the wheel.

So, if we find it, you have to invest

$100 for installation of the wrap

$50 for shipping of the wheel to you

$100 for the wrap

whatever we pay for the wheel locally, usually $30-$70 range for most wheels

When you send us pics of the wrap installed, you get $100 back. If you send in your wheel, the price is the same less the purchase of the spare wheel of course!

Installation is optional, you can save the other $100 installing it yourself (it isn't hard at all, please see

Mazda Miata 2006-13 steering wheel cover installation - RedlineGoods leather shift boot store - a very cool and concise write-up

and our YouTube channel: RedlineGoodsVideos - YouTube
If this sounds interesting, please send me a picture of your wheel so we can start looking for it on local auctions.

Re: re-wrap steering wheel

Failing that, any competent automotive trimmer will be able to help. There's a bunch in my area that claim to specialise in re-trimming leather steering wheels.
