Highly recommend. [8D] I have had my Eurotone Wheelskin in two-tone leather (cobalt & charcoal) on my car now for over 16 months and only have good things to say about it.

i got mine from here: http://www.dccarcare.com/tipowk/tipowk19.html

he also had a great idea for a different type of stitch (see the above link). called a baseball stitch. looks really, really good. (but, put at least three hours aside to do it and wear some type of leather gloves - pulling the cord tight enough will cut into unprotected hands!). he was even nice enough to send me an extra needle and spool of thread to do the stitch! [:X]

I used 2 wooden dowel rods about 3/4" dia and 3" long to wrap the thread around to pull it tight. Only takes a couple of seconds to wrap them 2 or 3 times and pull tight. Definetly saves the fingers from getting cut and bruised. The 1st one I did I actually damaged a nerve in my little finger from the pressure pinching the skin. I now have very little feeling in the tip of my finger from about 1 1/2 months ago !!! Wood dowel pins made it alot easier the 2nd time.

This was a persuasive discussion.... so I ordered a wheelskin from DC too.

Fast service, great price, super communications.

Add them to your 'good vendor' list...

Ordered on Wednesday, it arrived on Friday, and Saturday night i did the install while listening to PHC, I was done before GK told us about what had happened that week in Lake Wobegon.

and if feels great.
