Default Steering Wheel upholstery

Guys...can any one recommend a contact who can re-upholster a fpv steering wheel. Most places here don't do it or send them away over east. A guy who did my seats says he doesn't know/recommend any one in Perth who could do a proper job. I got a quote from Melbourne and they wanted $400ish .
Cheers

There is a member on here that has done multiple AU & E series Momo leather wheels for members on here. His work is exceptional, and I dont recall a bad review. Id post some pics, but thanks to the greed of photobucket, I cant do that.

Vegabass (or boss) is his name, I believe he is in Melbourne.

Sometimes shipping it to a quality & recommended business is better than trying to get it done locally. Because when you get it back, and you see its done properly, you know it was worth it.

There's another trimmer in Adelaide from memory that was re-trimming wheels and adding extra padding as well .... along with doing centre console lids as well.

A number of members on here raved about the quality of the work. It was about $350 a wheel including the padding from memory.
