Repairing a damaged steering wheel

I'm just about finished with my steering wheel cover installation.
Thought I'd post up some pics to show the results.
The original wheel was pretty bad. Some of the padding was worn away by as much as 1/2". I filled in the missing padding with black electrical tape by cutting strips and placing them lengthwise along the gaps. Once finished filling the gaps I wrapped the filled areas in electrical tape to sure-up the patch.
Then it was on to installing the new cover!
The part number I ordered is: Superior 58-0600T Superskin
Found here: Amazon.com: Superior 58-0600T Superskin, Extra Genuine, Tan: Automotive
The letter in the part number denotes the color.

All thats left is to make the final knot and trim the excess thread off.

This looks great, I need one. There's a nice chunk missing from the top right of my steering wheel for where I ******bag grip it. They have them in black I'm assuming?
