Stringing steering wheels...
#11
looks like that seller has the rare Works centre console..
The stringing looks very characterful in both cases.

I used 3mm cotton macrame cord, 200 metres from eBay costs about six quid. If you just google whipping steering wheel there is loads on how to do it. Be careful though not to look at the other whipping stuff that comes up. I think I used about 40 metres of cord - it’s more than you’d think and I finished it off with yacht varnish. It’s not difficult just time consuming and your fingers get sore. I did mine in sessions over 3 or 4 days. You find boredom sets in after a few inches.

Hi Ruairidh 

I thought I’d lost the details as I purchased it over a year ago on eBay and it had dropped off my purchase list.  However I looked up waxed cotton cord and the item below had the little note “you purchased this item on 19th November 2019”.

I have a feeling I ended up purchasing two lots of 10m so that there were no joins mid segment of the wheel.

Cheers

Ruairidh, this might be helpful. I have not tried it yet on my Rep springs.
