There's only one guy in the whole of Australia that i know of; who restorers of all makes and models go too to get their steering wheels re-finished, its a guy in South Australia called Peter Scott.

He is a big fan of Lexus, but don't let that stop you.

The following link will take you to his web site: http://planetsoarer.com/leather/index.htm

Peter is currently re-trimming my AU Series 1 LTD steering wheel for me, along with my Drivers door arm rest.

Steering wheel re-trim costs just $190.00

The freight to and from Victoria shouldn't be more than $25.00 as that's what i paid from QLD.

Good luck, and let me know how you go...

Sincerely,

John

Not on my wheel no; as its not a Momo wheel, just an LTD wheel.

But that's not to say he couldn't do that for you, mind you you will have to ask him these type of questions.

I'm certainly very happy with the job Peter did, especially the colour match. The steering wheel is as good as new.

$153.50 for the 2nd hand steering wheel off eBay
$50.00 in postage to SA and back to QLD

Total Cost finished up well below what I'd expect to pay for the wheel in its present condition....
