Default Re: Effigy's history

So about 8 years ago, I paid like $4 for a cheap "universal fit" elastic steering wheel cover.. I've been trying to replace it for about a year now but I guess no one owns a 13" wheel anymore..

A couple of months back I bought some foam and some fabric, and tonight i finally made my own cover :)

It's not perfect, but it's good enough for me..



Wheel as is, the metal between the wood pieces burns the shit out of your hands on hot days...



wrapped the foam and held it in place with masking tape..



began sewing crushed red velvet around the wheel.. also began realizing my strip of fabric wasn't long enough...



yup, definitely too short..



cut a strip of the old universal cover and used it to cover my poor measuring :)
