    custom steering wheel - need a couple of recommendations

    Gents,

    from this black 3 spoke to the dual color concept , with a thicker rim and ergonomics

    appreciate any leads you can provide

    maybe you can use and modify it a sport steering wheel with fiberglass or other material and use emblem.

    To each it's own but the OEM boot emblem is around seven and a half inches wide. It will look out of place parked in the middle of a steering wheel. I think you should keep looking for a more suitable wheel. Most of the more modern steering wheels have a fatter design more in lines of what you need.

    You could get a red cover and die those portions black. Otherwise you're going to need a good seamstress.

    you are right the emblem is a little on the large size , and i have a original wheel badge as well so there may be and alternative execution, the problem with modern "aftermarket" wheels is they are too small in overall diameter and just look wrong , the nardi wheels that are the right size would also require serious surgery to meet my needs so a wheel that fits seems an equally good starting point , If I could find a continental GT 3 spoke wheel that did not cost 3 grand sterling then i may be in with shot of what i am after

    I have done business with Don Le (Dallas Custom Steering Wheel) for nearly 20 years. His work is impeccable and his price is very reasonable for the quality of service he offers.
