I have to redo mine because the string broke half way through but here it is:



do it on a really hot day, my string snapped because it was a little colder out and they're made to fit really tight

Don't do it. I like the thought of the wheelskin but I just done care for the overall look of them. Execution of the sewing ruins it for me. Do like I and have your steering wheel to an automotive interior shop and have what you want done that way. They're taking the old leather off and used new material and resewed to mimic factory stitches. More expensive in the end and is taking longer than expected but should hold nice and tight and factory looking.

I have on my '94 Grand Am (but no pics of it). I found it real easy to install (just keep the holes lined up).

You may want to wear some cloth tape around your fingers (with pulling the thread tight can really rip into your fingers/hands).

But they are GREAT! Durable, real leather, tight fitting. No complaints. I was lucky enough to get a 2-tone pace car steering wheel (otherwise, I would have bought the wheel skin for my Monte).
