Thanks guys. Here are some installed pics per request:

I think I'm going to try the spare steering wheel today. I requested some different vinyl samples a couple of days ago. I asked for the most realistic synthetic leather. I have 3 different types coming. Buying leather sucks due to the cost per sq ft and usually it can only be purchased in full hides. My wife would kill me if I spent $300 or more and had a cow downstairs, so vinyl it is. The stuff you see here is under $13 per yard (3' x 54") and the requested samples are $19 per yard. That'* much easier to handle.

Constructive criticism is always welcome. I kinda agree with you too. I actually wanted to do it differently so the seam isn't right across the middle but couldn't figure out a way to do it. It came out better than expected but the thread I used was too small. It holds up just fine but dosen't look quite right. More than likely I'll end up doing a v2.0 at a later time and can explore a different design.

The steering wheel is becoming a challange but hopefully I'll have some pics by tonight.

Thanks again for all of the compliments, everyone.

Dude.. holy crap. I thought I was pimpin' with my car.. but I bow down to your pimpness.. even though it is a '93 . I see what you mean about the thread. Comparing that with my car.. your'* is much smaller. Definitely awesome, I could never compare [unless you call my dirty tan shifter two tone..].

That'* cool as hell. Great work there. If you consider a second try, go to the wrecker and get a 2k shifter handle (and leather boot) instead. You'll like the 'feel' much better. On that note, I'm tempted to have you make me a custom boot for my 2k shifter.....it'* too short to work REALLY well. It pulls out of the console in P.

Im kind of thinking "eww" because I dont see any two-toneness in the car as far as green goes but really nice stitching there and great idea! No offense BTW.
