    Hey Chris can you please make a video on how to clean and polish leather seats. I tried n not happy the way my civic seats are looking. The beige color seems particularly tough one to clean.

    I like the procedures done but the finished of the stitches are not perfectly aligned each others joints and some wrinkle on corners, maybe if you use a little bit bigger thread to hide some imperfections and that is even more impressive outcome but the totality of this video tutorial, is great learning and to do some improvements to others like me. Thank you.

    If you attempt this, place about 8 hours aside in order to do it. It is relatively easy but for first timers it will take longer than anticipated. Also, if your vehicle's steering wheel has large spokes (like my 95 Ram 2500) it is nearly impossible to get the leather on those large spokes tight. This is a great video and explains pretty much everything you need to do but I ended up ripping my homemade cover off and putting on a tight fitting and pretty slim steering wheel cover on the bare plastic of the steering wheel. If time is a problem, I'd highly recommend doing that and save yourself the time.

    I bought a stichable Suade cover from AliExpress.
    The airbag on my Indian Suzuki Celerio does not come out this easy 😭 Infact, i think it's a one time thing. It's held in place by rivets 🥺 I'm not giving up hope though. I'll try to stitch while the wheel is in place.

    (Edit) - I did it ! With abo 1h30m of effort and 1liter of fuel 😂. Totally worth it

    You are incredible. I'm a mechanic retired 50 years at the business. There are not many people around that do this quality of work anymore. Usually only in restoration shops. It's sad everything moves so fast and is throw away. The old days when we would fix everything make parts is pretty much gone. Great job. Highest compliments

    Hold on, you did ALL THAT WORK, but you could have just taken a razor blade and cut off the old leather, without removing the steering wheel at all, and you would have gotten an Awesome, result, for free, with 1/10th the work?
