The Tesla steering wheel is one of the easiest steering wheels to remove on a modern car, and the steering wheel comes apart very easily once it's off. It's also nice that the spline is keyed so you can't put it back on crooked.
If I had to do it again, I wouldn't hesitate to take the wheel off to get better results and do less overall work.
did you wrap your phone charge pad too??
Finally done mine, the bottom part is a nightmare .
nice job! I wouldn’t call any of this a nightmare but there is definitely a learning curve. I actually have to redo mine at some point this week/next weekend. I originally did it Satin white and am going to switch to matte while I also wrap a couple other interior pieces. But the real reason is mine got slightly torn/tattered during a recent wheel alignment. I’m guessing the bar/blocker they used to lock the steering wheel nicked things at its attachment points.
I thought I’d give this a try this weekend, but the nut that needs to be loosened to remove the steering wheel will not break loose for me. My car was built in the fall of 2018, and I can’t break it loose using a ratchet with 3 feet long piece of pipe used for more leverage. I feel like if I try any more force, I’ll end up breaking something.
This looks awesome. Your interior looks completely awesome and I've been trying to do something like this except I have the black interior so I'm wrapping the wheel with blue to see how it looks. I actually tried this today and could not get the steering wheel off, so I attempted to wrap it without removing the wheel. Long story shot, it looked like garbage because I either cut it too short so there wasn't enough to tuck into the creases or too long so it wouldn't ALL tuck into the creases. After making a few accidental nicks to my steering wheel with the razor, I just called it quits. How did you cut yours so precisely?
