steering wheel and shifter

Postby stocko » Wed Jun 08, 2016 4:06 pm

Hey fellas
So I have an 05 lib gt manual and I've been doing a lot of cosmetic fix ups lately. One of the things I'm looking at is the steering wheel and gear shift knob. The steering wheel is not doing so well the leather is ruined and it's starting to peel apart at the seems and the gear knob has none of the leather left on it. I'm looking for augesstions on options is it worth getting it reupholstered or shall I buy new for both. I do love the look of the DAMD wheels just not the price. I'm also pretty tall at 6ft4 so would the smaller wheel block the speedo.

Thanks guys sorry for the dribble

D wheel is fine for 6.4 me... I can tilt it down a little to cut the reflected glare from the edge of the instruments...

I'm very long in the body, and the D wheel still does not block the speedo - it does block the turn indicator lights though, and because the sound is so soft (particularly with my replacement sound), I have to be careful about making sure I cancel the turn indicator - still love the wheel though
