Repair steering wheel
« September 14, 2019, 22:27:02 »
This is a small sunday DIY.
Iím the second owner and the previous one messed up with the steering wheel. Today I decided to try out the glue method by same Youtubers.

A few holes on the top


Fill it with super glue and sand down with 1200


Mark and paint


Outcome. Not too bad and Iím happy with that.

It'll be interesting to see how it weathers. For the SLX which is black, I've tried using raven oil and then clear from Mr Minute or  waproo  hi shine sealer . not quite the hi gloss finish of the original but at least it's black and somewhat sealed. I wipe down the leather wheels and keep them clean. I think all the skin oils and gunk breaks down the clear over time + UV.

Little update: after a sunny week, the glue cracks and doesn't hold very well to the surface anymore. The paint is still in good condition. So I probably find another solution then.

If you're willing to have a glue'n'paint wheel, then this is more up your DIY alley

I think sewing is the way to go as I want to keep the car for the next few years
