                               Restoration Kits


 <H1>Custom Steering Wheels makes direct replacement restoration leather kits for your Porsche.These are not generic one piece size fits all items you get at your local car parts store.


 Our kits cover the spokes and are based on the original pattern .We use original oe hides and automotive correct thread .Typically  when you wheel starts to deteriorate is when the inside top thread vanishes - What is happening is that your leather is shrinking at the top part. Then approximately 9-12 months   later the leather color starts to come off on your hands, or even cracking in places  . Your local dealer will probably try to sell you a generic one size fits all wheel kit, which does not look correct on your Porsche. Or you’ll be looking at a $2,500.00 bill from your dealer to replace the exact wheel with no color choice.


  Custom Steering Wheels has restored in house 100's of Porsche wheels and have developed proper do it yourself kits .They all include thread,0 2 curved needles and instructions.  These wheel kits depending on your stitching skills and kit purchased can range from 2-8 hours of work. We will supply at no extra charge more thread if you need it.




  Custom Steering Wheels has most of  the specific kits on your Porsche  in your original color  .In some cases on earlier model Porsche  checking the steering wheels serial number will be needed for the specific wheel you have /All Porsche 

come with the coporect spokes in place , seems at there original placement.The holes are along the same length spaced out along the edge .


Sewing styles 


Porsche used the traditional crosstitch style .You sew it up in a continous X pattern.No Porsche ever came in a baseball stitch  

You can order the later presewn style described below but was never seen and thus not period correct 


1995/6 -2015

With the 993 and up  Porsche used two sewing styles either crosstitch or presewn.

If you are not sure - you can email uis a picture .Or you can chocie either one .Both were period correct 

Most  models came in crosstich but to us it appears its a mix  of both styles 

The Presewn comes as an option and saves you 40- 50 % of your sewing time

We presew it here and you end up sliding your needle between the leather and thread rather than the traditional push through a hole methoid used in the crosstitch - See your specific kit if available

 Although you may think they all look the same - Porsche 911 bowtie wheels are not the same.Spoke length, grip and diameters vary.   You will need to look under the horn on the bare metal of your wheel to match up correct kit on your 911.Some of these wheels are rare .Please read notes and if in doubt email us a picture of your wheel .Bowtie Wheels can come in a rubber coated base or hard plastic "bakelite" material.Kits fit either material
