    Why not have the original leather steering wheel repaired? It takes only a full day to have the leather replaced with nice stitching.

    Places like SEATMATE (mandaluyong) and other leather seat shops in Banawe, Araneta, etc doesn't charge that much.

    Alternatively, you can buy a surplus Corolla leather steering wheel and have it bolted straight on your car. Downside, it might cost more than having the leather replaced and color of the surplus wheel might not be a direct match (close match lang).

    btw, 99 corolla gli (lovelife) doesn't have leather steering wheels. They have a rubber-plastic steering wheel. My original wheel started to crumble so I went the surplus route and bought a real leather JDM-spec Corolla steering wheel with intact airbag from my suki surplus shop along Banawe.
