my 89's leather steering wheel has a big ol' hole in it- and its going to crap. does anyone have a black leather wrapped wheel with cruise control?

i also need the linkage and shifter boot for a BW1345. im swapping my electric t-case for the manual. but the manual didnt come with any linkage.
suggestions for ghetto riggin it would be nice too!

The wheel itself doesn't have cruise - that's strictly on the horn pad & in the column. Any pre-'92 wheel will fit on any pre-'92 column & work, with a horn pad that matches the column (cruise or non) & the style of wheel ('87-91, or pre-'87).

I have a leather '87-91 wheel, but it has a lot of wear & tiny nicks on it. If you wanted it to look nice, you'd have to sand it smooth, wash it, & redye it black. Not difficult, but it'd take a little time.

ill keep it as an option.
does anyone know the price to get one of these things re-wrapped? i might call around to leather shops tmrw and see what they can quote me.
mine started with a little flake missing- then it turn into a hole about 1.5" wide within a week. its right at the top of the wheel- so my hand goes over it alot...

You can buy sew-on leather wheel covers, if you have the patience & dexterity to DIY. I saw one Friday that looked almost stock.

Personally, I prefer the solid plastic wheel. It's much more durable, & fits my grip. :D
