Hi Guys,
Just bought a second hand standard steering wheel off eBay ( may have been from someone on here?) with the idea to get it re trimmed in a GT350 style. Was thinking about perforated leather rather than alcantara for the sides to match the seats (and hopefully will stay looking good for longer). I have seen a couple of companies on Google that do steering wheel re trims but has anyone any recommendations or idea of cost? I am hoping that this may be cheaper than buying the GT350 wheel & I can also personalise it to what I want.

[MENTION=20439]Jimboy2[/MENTION] recommends Royal, I believe.
Royal is who I have looked at on the internet and will be contacting unless anyone else has any recommendations

They're the only company I recall being recommended on this forum. IIRC Jimboy said they quoted around £150 for a 350 retrim.

When mine eventually needs doing I'm going to see if they can reduce the thickness of the spokes by raising the lower edge. I like to hook my thumbs over the top but the spokes are so thick that the angle the rest of my fingers have to go to to get under the spoke means it's not all that comfortable after a while.

Thanks for guiding me to Royal Steering Wheels , I got mine back and fitted it yesterday.
It's a quality job and I'm well pleased with it.

Nope it's Nappa , but I've just realised why you would say that.
Sorry , I'm new to this and may have ' hijacked ' the thread ?

:welcome:
Got any pics? I have a GT350 wheel but am considering getting my stock wheel retrimmed also...would like it just a bit thicker than the GT350 one.

He can do it on an exchange now. So will send you a re trimmed wheel to your spec and you send him your stock one. So no waiting around
