Anyone done it before?
I have 3 spoke steering wheel with blue stitch from factory(Sport Edition Golf), which is very ugly because color from leather has faded. So now I'm thinking how to restore it.

The new one is 370€ on ebay, which is too expensive and used in good condition is very hard to find because of blue stitch.

If anyone done it before, please give me some tips. Thank you!

get a reskin kit of aliexpress... they come with blue/red/black/yellow or green stitching.... alternative... get it from Bmac (he's uk based and buys them in bulk than sells them at a profit but you'll get it much faster) 


If you had a complete black steering wheel than yes you can repaint it... satin black is the right colour.. but with yours having the blue stitching i wouldn't recommend repainting it as you will get paint on the stitching.
