    Hi all,

    A while ago I had a refurbished steering wheel supplied and fitted by Jack from http://www.royalsteeringwheels.com. He is based in Abingdon (Oxfordshire) so popped over. Really nice chap, and very enthusiastic about what he does.

    I know some others on here have purchased from him, but I just wanted to give him a bit of free advertising. Awesome quality leather work and stitching... I am very pleased with it! :-bd

    It's padded out to be thicker, which gives it a much better feel. The leather is stitched using the three colours of the M-Tech logo, and stands out really well. It's top quality leather too, he uses the stuff that vehicle manufacturers use.

    NOOOOO, don't advertise them yet, wait 'til mines done else I'll have to wait even longer...lol
    In all seriousness though, I've spoken to him and your right, he's a nice bloke and knows exactly what you want. Problem is he's so blooming good he has a long waiting list.

    I too have a steering wheel covered by Jack, I opted for a padded full Alcantara with yellow stitching, first class work and a real easy gut to deal with. I will try and get some pics tomorrow.

    Maybe he could recover the whole car for you, not just the steering wheel. This would save your paintwork from getting scratched ;)

    I wonder if he did this one? S:e

    Thanks, took a chance on the stitching, some will like and others will not, main thing is I love it and it adds a little bit of colour to the interior.
