So are you doing these for other people now? I may be interested in having mine done. Have you done any ZHP shift knobs in Alcantara?

Thanks.....BB

How much for a piece big enough to wrap my zhp wheel? Color is not a huge deal. I'd prefer the OE graphite if you have it but if not, I can live with black.

Also, in your original post I saw you wrapped over the original fabric but in the most recent it looks like you removed the original and replaced it. Am I just seeing things? Mine actually has a big hole in it so I'm looking to replace rather than cover.

Thanks

yes i have replaced it like 3 times lol/ the reason i wrapped over the alcantara(to begin with) was that i wanted a black instead of the gray then i started to like the gray(and had figured out how to wrap them) so i stripped off the black and sold the oem gray alcantara wheel for 225.00(reason i never glued the fabric down was to be able to sell or keep etc.)and just wrapped a crappy wheel i boughjt for 60.00(and glued the fabric onto the leather) if you want some alcantara i could sell you some but it cost 100.yrd so you may want to get some ebay fabric to pratice with b4 you start to try the high dollar stuff.
