steering wheel cover happiness

Update - cover arrived and I wish I'd read the original post correctly - it's too big! I've just emailed him to ask about cutting it, I don't have an issue with that at I have access to an industrial heavy-duty sewing machine, but I want to be sure I cut to the right size.

Hi I made sure to give him the dimensions, (diameter, circumference and grip circumference) and mine was spot-on. Photo of it half installed. Decided not to stitch it through the leather, followed the maker's YouTube instructions but used every stitch, not every second stitch as per video. It'll do.

If yours is too big I'd be inclined to send it back and have him modify it. Postage is cheap......

Great service - I emailed them my problem, they came straight back and said they'd send another one if I sent them dimensions of my wheel.
This I have done, I now wait expectantly.

Roger,

What is the name of the Steering Wheel Cover Company? Any company that gives service like that we should all hear about !!! I've been a dealer for Wheel Skins for many years and have also liked the service I've received from them.
