Question about Steering Wheels...
Alright, the steering wheel for the celica is a lot smaller the the avg steering wheels, i think its something like 13 rather then 15, my question though is that because of this, theres not a lot of steering wheel covers that will fit it, where can i get some to fit the celica steering wheel.
Also, i only want a steering wheel cover until i can stain the stock steering wheel, but, does anyone know how and whats the best way to stain it or paint it, or whatever, whats the best way to do this!!!
Please help me!!

The GTS wheel is actual leather... I remember the GT wheel at the auto show was some cheezy material that felt really cheap thumbsdown

So your saying that the best thing to do is buy a gts steering wheel, and stain it in whatever color i want?? Ill try that, but now, the question is where can i buy a GTS Steering wheel and how much do you think they would run

And for the other question, i used paint from krylon, but it was made for platics, its called krylon fusion...

The steering wheel may cost a lot...but TRD does make them that come colored already for like 700 or 800 bucks...idk how much a stock GTS steering wheel would run you...

the Krylon Fusion will be good on any of your plastics in the car, don't try to paint the wheel or the dash with it...

i wasnt going to use krylon to paint it, i just said that because someone else asked me how i painted my plastics,
so how could i go by getting a steering wheel from TRD, where can i get i from, for like 700 or 800, thats fine, but does it still have the cruise control thing on it, just like the stock, but either way, where can i buy one
