Steering Wheel Repair

Would anyone be able to point me in the direction of a repairer in the UK who can fix my damaged wheel. It's an original Lotus, three spoked wheel with the Chapman signature. Unfortunatley the rim appears to be broken adjacent to one of the spokes. Ideally I would like to beef the rim up a little and get it recovered in leather.

Had mine recovered through Mattys and a very nice job they did of it. Beforehand I had removed old leather and repainted the spokes.

Other than that I suggest you talk to Mota Lita at Thruxton - they do a refurb service.

Preserving the foam under the leather is important if you can, during removal of the old leather, though I recognise that you will have probelem with this since youned to do repair.

Good Luck
