Ok looks like I'm gonna go with snappy after Jesus' birthday.

Would be grateful if people could share pics of their 197/200 wheels to help me decide?

A few more Snappy bits for me - a real craftsman! Christmas present from my OH.

I follow your threads on PH and saw this earlier, when I read your post I knew it was Snappy that had done it. Excellent work, and a seriously awesome project on the Ferrari.

search for Snappy (he has a profile on here), once you've found him, click on his name and you will see his "wall" with lots of messages etc.. look carefully and you will see his mobile contact number amongst the posts

Here's mine. I had this done back in August but I've only recently taken pics as I sold the car last week.
Silver stitching, perforated sides and bottom. The leather Snappy uses is top notch and the workmanship is flawless.
I'll be contacting him again to do the wheel in my new R26 Megane.

He can do after market wheels also @dann2707

Im getting a few sample pieces of blue alcantara sent to me from him this week. Once ive chosen the one i want, my Sabelt is off to him :smile:
Was a little while ago but did you get this done in the end?
Really want my Sabelt retrimmed, I know when I asked him before he couldn't get the right materials for the blue bit. How does it look if so?

Well I've been in speaks with him today as I was sent some blue alcantara samples. I got to admit, I wanted them lighter but im not sure if it's possible as I think the blue alcantara is limited, as mentioned to you.

These are what I got sent.

Ideally I'd like it brighter, just like the original is when it's new but if this cannot be done then I will settle for the lighter one as im sure it'll look good against the black perforated leather.

@Dr Jekyll Keep me posted on how you get on, I'm really interested in seeing the finished result. You going leather and then just the top alcantara then?

Yes I will buddy. Once I hear back from snappy it's being sent. He did say that he's got a lot on mind, which is to be expected considering he's workmanship.

I'm going black perforated leather all round and a blue alcantara top :up:

Yeah he sure does.Believe he had a bit of trouble doing the gearknob with it still on the gearshaft but its turned out well.The leather and blue stitching now matches my snappy steering wheel :)

Better pics. Gonna go and get it fitted in a bit, just wish the b*****d rain would sod off
Snappy has changed my opinions on LCR's too! Really didnt like them but his red one has changed my mind. No wonder it takes a month to do too, I went into his workshop he does bloody loads of stuff!! Top man.

With the Mk2 Clio wheels its Snappy all day long. Royal seem to just cover up the thumb grips whereas Snappy incorporates them with leather etc. Looks x100 better.
