    Hey Gang,
    Has anyone ever had the leather on a factory 308 steering wheel replaced? Mine is all faded and crappy. I want to keep the original steering wheel but get it re-upholstered to look just like the original. Know anyone that might be able to do this? (Local would be preferred...)

    Thanks

    I would try giving Sal Messina(sp?) a call at Columbia Auto Seat Cover (think that is the name off the top of my head). He is located in Lawerence and has been around for quite awhile. He has done many of Ralph Lauren's vehicles and his work is top notch, Hope this helps.

    There's a place in Plantation, Florida called AGLA leather and that's one of their specialties. The number is 1-800-780-9836 or www.aglausa.com.
    They're always at Cavallino and I'm planning on doing the same to my 308.

    WOW! They are expensive! $475 to do a wheel!

    I'll second the recommendation for Sal Messina - (978) 683-2205. Great work, fabulous guy.

    Might be cheaper buying a new wheel, though.... :(

    vty,
