This wheel will not receive a full recovering, but rather a restitching and redyeing, as it's in pretty good shape as is. Unfortunately, this photo does not really show the missing stitching or the various (minor) flaws in the surface coloring.
Here are some before and after photos of the horn pad. At first, it seemed okay as is, but under certain angles, the discoloration was pretty bad. The most right-hand photo is after redyeing. You can click on any of these to see a close-up (beware, the closeups are 1024x768!)...

Here's what the wheel looked like after stitching and redyeing, prior to reassembly - I tried to brighten the detail shots to show the stitching better.
A one-time-only candid snapshot of the inner skunkworks of Stuttgart Swapshop!
