I got very lucky on eBay and managed to contact the seller before he posted pictures. Offered him a Buy It Now price which he accepted - I then got the original recovered with the red stripe added and I've kept the eBay one for as and when I sell the car

Laid up for winter??? That car seems to be permanently laid up with you dodging IED's and what not in the sand pit. Grin

All part of the masterplan to keep the miles down, I’ve racked up close to 1700 this last year, nearly had a coronary when it got to 25k. Surprised plus Herman doesn’t like the cold wet weather...

If you remove the steering wheel there's less chance you'll flog the car Rolling Eyes

At that price it's better to get your original recovered without blowing all your dough

Depending on use I’d go for the recover if you haven’t tried a standard one. The one I had was standard and it was not very comfortable as it doesn’t have enough padding. Before I get flamed it was very tiring/awkward on track as well as on longer trips.

Thanks for all the suggestions, the rennlist one isn’t cheap Surprised I think recovering the existing with extra padding is the way to go. To have one padded out first is going to make all the difference Thumb

Hell there’s even scope then for the yellow band Grin to match the seatbelts

Take the thickness of Jonttt's wallet and divide that by 2.8752. Thumb

Looking at 2mm, im told even a little bit of extra girth makes all the difference. Grin
Royal looks good with the possibility of an exchange unit or 1 week turnaround #boom
If anyone wants to volunteer to go and remove Herman's wheel for me (with a short complimentary Herman drive) it could be over by the time I get home Thumb
