Has anyone changed their steering wheel for an after-market sport/leather job on a GU Patrol? I've tried a 350mm diameter Autotechnica, but the spouse finds it too heavy. Need to change to something around std diameter (370mm), but with nicer leather rim. Std wheel has worn smooth and shiny. Not having any luck with SAAS or MOMO.??

Desert - have you considered getting the standard steering wheel leather trimmed?
I know of a company here in Adelaide who could do this for you; or any good auto-trimmer should be able to do the job.

If in Adelaide try ATUC (Automotive Trim & Upholstery Contractors) 08 8243 1383. They do original equipment leather wheels for Holden Commodore, Toyota Camry and Mitsubishi 380 locally.

Cheers, Dan

I recon the trimming idea is proabbaly the best way to fix your problem.
You have to be carefull with road-worthiness and insurance companies if your new wheel is a different size to the original. Also the materials it;s made of.. When I was a rev head I had a Formuling steering wheel fitted on my Bundera, but in hindsight I think it was a mistake, it looked nice but was make of steel with leather "grip' but if I had ever had a head on, I probably would have riped my face to shreads if the wheel had bent at all.
