    There are many colors to choose from. The are many ways to tie the knots as well.

    Can someone tell me the color of the steering wheel from my picture above in the threads. I spoke to a local carpenter shop and they might be able do the faux burl wood grain back. Just they need to know the exact color to do a good job

    If it is a local shop can’t you take it to them? Makes more sense to me than trying to match a Japan-USA-Qatari colour description chain.

    Stitched a leather steering wheel cover today. Took forever stitching it, but the result is nice.

    Used this kit...which came nicely packaged, including a hand written note several sentences long. Nice touch.

    That looks way better than the stock wheel. I also ordered one of these kits when this thread popped up. I much prefer the feel of leather over the wood - this is how they should have come from the factory IMO.

    I ordered the same kit. It looks great on your wheel. Much better than the thin "wood." I'm definitely not looking forward to 4 hours of stitching but the end result looks great.

    As the Brits (might) say, Bob's your uncle.

    :hmm: Heh. I had to look that one up! :grinpimp:
    Here's Wikipedia's interpretation:

    ...And Bob's your uncle is an expression of unknown origin, that means "and there it is" or "and there you have it." It is commonly used in Great Britain and Commonwealth countries. Typically, someone says it to conclude a set of simple instructions or when a result is reached. The meaning is similar to that of the French expression "et voilà!"

    "Bob's your uncle" is an exclamation that is used when "everything is all right" and the simple means of obtaining the successful result is explained. For example: "left over right; right over left, and Bob's your uncle – a reef knot." Sometimes the phrase is followed with "and Nellie's your aunt" or "and Fanny's your aunt." It is sometimes elaborately phrased Robert is your mother's brother or similar for comic effect.

    Origin[edit]
    A. J. Langguth and others have suggested that the expression arose after Conservative Prime Minister Robert "Bob" Cecil appointed his nephew Arthur Balfour as Chief Secretary for Ireland in 1887, an act which was apparently both surprising and unpopular. Whatever other qualifications Balfour might have had, "Bob's your uncle" was seen as the conclusive one.[1]Regardless of the origin, the meaning has become acknowledging, announcing, or explaining a result or outcome that is achieved more easily than might be imagined.[2
