I got it from Amazom.com. I had to wrap it twice, the first time was with a fake leather wrap that had a flat plastic like thread that wrapped in the outside. This was to thicken it up for the leather wrap. There is enough thread to do a cris cross pattern but it was a pain just to do a single thread. Next one I do I will attempt the cris cross stitching...

Looks great! I love the big Wilcox Crittenden logo in the center of that wheel.

Looks great Steve. Hopefully the leather will stand up to getting wet occasionally. My wheel has a leather wrap too. I really like the look and feel.

My steering wheel was cracked pretty bad under the leather wrap I had on it. The intention was to fill it the cracks and sand it down and paint it. The steering wheel material seemed to give way easier then the full. Wasn't happy with the finish. So I completed the center. I had to wrap the outer wheel with a fake leather wrap to give it a little thickness and then I wrapped the outer wheel with a real leather wrap. Happy with how it turned out...
