Something different

Aftermarket Ferrero wood wheel that I bought a yard sale many years ago for $20.
375 mm diameter, slightly dished.
They were also used on BMWs, Alfas and others back in the 60s and 70s.

I like the Wheelskin's look and functionality. Baseball stitch using two separate laces tightens the cover over the wheel & limits slippage. I made an error towards the end of the install for which I had to completely re-do the lacing and my fingers took a while to recover. Appreciate all the pictures of some really nice looking steering wheels.

Yes, little bits of information and knowledge seem to disappear.
I had to check this it's been 68 years since I graduated.
