vvrrrmm goes the red car

My car is red .

My car has done a lot of miles .

My car had her annual checkup for rego .

My car really deserved a little pampering so I made
her a steering wheel cover .

I hope this will keep her happy and going strong for another year .

In case you are wondering I left the ugly black grippy cover on the wheel
and just measured around the wheel and the grip width .
I cut a long strip of fabric and joined it to form a tube .
Then I added casing on either side and threaded thin elastic through .
I put it on the steering wheel and tightened the elastic until the cover was snug .

I cannot guarantee that this cover would be legal.

The ugly black grippy cover also prevents the cover slipping .

At least if she does beak down Clare she will look good! :)

If your car is alive, she will definitely appreciate how much care you are giving her. A new steering wheel and an annual inspection is a good way to maintain your car. Regular maintenance and inspection can make your vehicle last for a good number of years, as you can spot damage and do some repairs immediately.

You surely know how to pamper your car! The steering wheel cover looks kinda cute. It would be a joy to handle that soft cover while you are on the road. It will not hurt, and like what Tyra said, regular maintenance can make your car last longer.
