Do you guys have any tip on how to tuck the leather cover under the panels on the steering wheel?

Take the airbag out and bezel off, it's WAY easier.

I'm looking to purchase this wheel cover as well, but unsure which color thread matches the Sport thread color of our seats. For those that have purchased this cover, can you tell us what color is the best match?

Via my PM's with Ryne, he got his from Michael's craft store. But the rest I would have to figure out on my own.. If I get to this mod soon, I'd be happy to post my findings on the thread color.

I bought one from Ali express and it came pretty quickly. Have not gotten around to installing yet, but will update when I do. I chose black thread to keep it stealthy.

I also purchased separate thread from a craft store. I purchased mine from Amazon prime to get it in two days so I didn't have a choice in color. It came with grey/silver and white. I bought red to match some other things I'm planning. Just make sure whatever thread you buy from a craft store has a higher thread count than just sewing thread. Maybe 4-6 threads per strand vs 2-3. It will make a big difference in durability when sewing the leather.

What are y'all doing about the worn plastic trim around the buttons/airbag cover? I'm thinking plasti-dip. Any input?

you can buy it new from the infiniti parts store. its not very much.

Don't dip it. dip is **** on touch surfaces. at the very least spray it with krylon or something.

For those of you who did this, how are the covers holding up? Did they loosen or breakdown over the past 3yrs?

mines doing great too..I ordered anther one cause I thought this one was gonna wear out due to it feeling cheaper at first but I think its softened up a bit, but I still really love it and its held up well..surprisingly its much more durable than the oem wheel that used to get scuffed by my wedding ring all the time its got zero marks from my ring
