NOTE: This is for members and their private sales/wants.
There are rules that suppliers have to follow (and many of you do follow the rules). However there have been a number of instances recently where "suppliers" have broken the rules.

Suppliers/Dealers or anyone selling with a commercial view in mind CANNOT post here unless responding to a specific request of a member in a "wanted" post.

Suppliers include people "breaking for spares" on a regular basis, when purchasing spares members should ask a supplier what they contribute to the running of the forum

I bought a cover from wheelskins.com/ A little effort to fit, but I was very happy with the results.

Be aware that the leather steering wheel is not that durable if you work with your hands for a living. I have skin like sandpaper and the leather didn't last 6 months before showing signs of serious wear. I have a parachute cord wrap on it now and even it is getting tired now but it's lasted about 5 years.

Thanks for the info Lambert! Seems weaker than most then.. I dont have that rough skin, so i dont think it`ll be a big problem for me, but that info sure will make me looking for wear before buying!
