Well, I got the leather done and unraveled the masking tape so I could admire the contrasting black of the carbon against the black of the leather. It looked spectacular.

Unfortunately, the upper right hand side showed some imperfections and lumps through the leather.

I ended up removing the leather and smoothing those imperfections using a soldering iron (these were imperfections from hot glue gun that I used to fill in some gouges in the steering wheel rubber)

That piece of leather never fit perfectly and was a nightmare to re-stitch, something I attempted twice before giving up and making a whole new piece

You may notice this leather appears a different color, this is because I did shoe polish on the other piece. This one got it after I was done stitching

Here is a mockup with the airbag and buttons, post shoe polish

I then took the buttons and lower airbag cover trim off so I could carbon wrap them. In the meantime, I installed my push start button to see how it would look
