My steering wheel mod

I've never been a fan of the Alcantra wheel on the Boss, and it hasn't grown on me with age. I also have concerns about keeping it clean and about long-term durability. I really prefer a leather wheel. So the last time I was at the dealership, I checked out a Mustang GT on the showroom floor with a leather wheel. I liked the feel of the leather wheel much better, and the fact that it had white stitching sealed the deal. I bought one and today I had it installed. I'm a happy camper :) Got a white shift ball on order, too.

I agree fully... and having a PW Boss your post is making me want to do this sooo bad.. Did the dealer install? and if so.. if you don't mind how much whole thing completed?? Thanks.

The wheel was $155 with shipping, dealer charged $87 for installation.

Funny...I have that wheel in my GT with the 401A interior, and I've been worried about keeping the white stitching clean and was considering the change to the Boss wheel!

I really like the leather wheel as opposed to the alcantara. I'm going to see if the dealer can get one with black stitching. The white looks great one your PW Boss. But mine is SBY and would really like it with black is they make it that way too.Price is reasonable too.
 
Nice! Its subtle, and most won't know the steering wheel is not stock or had been changed...

I kinda like my Alcantara Wheel.. at least for the time being...

I would like to find a better Car Horn though... one the has the T-Rex sound from Jurassic Park or one that screams "Ah, [email protected]!$ YEAH!" Or even one that says "POWER!!!!!" (like in the Old Spice Commercials). Anything is better than the stock Horn, it sounds like someone kicked the car in its balls...
