Spongebob I had mine done at royal and very pleased.

Have you picked up your car or are you having it done before you pick her up?

I only ask as I’m near to redline and have an account with a parcel carrier so could send it for you Thumb just like to give a bit back to the forum thumbsup

I gave up in the end, was going to send off, then decided to get it done with their trimmers, but apparently the 991 steering wheel cant be recovered because it damages that particular wheel Rolling Eyes
Thanks for the offer though Thumb I think ill live with it and see, I am airing towards alcantara again Grin As I have zero patience I may just wait for one to come up for sale then do a swap.
no problem I did think I saw one on eBay last night with yellow stitching and 12 o’clock band, is yours manual or pdk can’t remember without looking

PDK, I want as Mikelukes previous page but in yellow Thumb It’s a standard 991 PDK Sports Design wheel (but the special one which can’t be retrimmed Grin)

So, you'll be giving Jack a call now, will you?

I decided to go for leather in the end (rather than alcantara) - Missus was not too keen on it and the advice from the local indy was that leather lasts longer without too much upkeep.


PS - In the words of Jim Royle... can't be retrimmed, my ar$e! !

I am with Jonitt on Alcantara , when you clean it it comes up like new, feels great with a better grip than leather . at minimum if you can't bring yourself to go with Alcantara at least consider the 12 o'clock in yellow Alcantara. Thumb Thumb

Alcantara = mole skin, Euughh!!
