Wood Steering Wheel
Do your friends make fun of your giant dump truck sized steering wheel? well, neither did mine, but it IS huge. I've had 4 steering wheels counting the original one. In some of the corners where I always rest my fingers, it started to wear and tear, so I kept by eyes out. Basically, if you want to replace your steering wheel, you're going to have to get a HUB which converts your steering column to the manufacture of the new steering wheel.

My Steering wheel history
1. Original, you know what it looks like!
2. GT Grant (SUCKS - too small, doesn't match)
3. Some kind of real Mercedes one. This was is a MOMO, but didn't match well, and was never used and not smooth.
4. Ferrari! This one works perfect. It cost almost $200, but was new, larger, smooth and prefect.
1. Lock your steering wheel <click>
2. Take off your horn button
You will need a 13mm HEX, unscrew it.
3. Slide it off
Now you will need a Steering HUB, which adapts your new steering wheel to your car.
If you have a MOMO you need MOMO Adapter # 6004
If you have GT Grant, you will need a 6552 adapter.
Here are some of MoMo's instructions if the help:
Now you just have to put on your hub, screw it in and put on your new steering wheel, straight as can be. Test it as you're on straight.
