              I’m curious how you are planning to attach the game steering wheel to your steering column. What does it look like on the inside? Is it all plastic or is there metal in there as well?

                @ MacGyver - i attached the steering wheel with a plate from the original steering wheel this take all the stress when turning the wheel ;-) Looks amazing pain to fit but worth it al going to hook up all the buttons

                  You know that's not a 355 dash you got there, right?

                  looks good.

                    Other builders have talked about using the game wheel in the past but this is the first time I have seen anyone actually do it. If you wouldn’t mind, please post some photos of the wheel mounting. I don’t need it myself. But I would think other would be interested.

                    Did you get your body yet?

                      Very interesting use of the game wheel. My question would also be about mounting and strength. I have personally bent a steering wheel over during an accident, and working in the collision industry, I've seen that repeated many times. It doesn't take as much effort as one would think, and I can't imagine the loss of control if the wheel broke instead of just bending.

                          It depends on which on you get.

                          The higher you pay the better quality you get. Honestly id trust a video game wheel over an APC or AEM wheel anyday of the week.
