Here is the steering wheel I just completed.

I really liked the size of the Momo Tuner that I had on my car, so I decided to use that size on this build - 13.2" diameter. Used a center section of a -11 wheel that I picked up cheap at Hersey (no -10 wheels were harmed in the production of this piece).

hand Cut the rim from a piece of 1/8" thick steel, sandwiched it with two pieces of 1/2" thick low density PVC, carved to round with a .5" radius router bit.

welded the rim to the center, off set 3/4" up to get a bit more underwheel leg room and better gauge visibility.

Wrapped in 4mm adhesive backed foam and then hand cut and hand stitched the leather cover (cross stitch).

All pretty easy except the leather fitting and stitching. Anyone who thinks that $425 for Dallas custom to do it is expensive, think again - it is a bargain!!

What a great idea I really like that one, time to sell all my Momo stuff, and all the other wheels I have sitting around the shop.

Thanks guys

It was an idea swimming around in my head and I had been collecting up the stuff to do the hockey puck for a few years. It wasnt until the price came down to something reasonable for the puck parts that I put it all together and finally got motivated to do the rest.

Nothing wrong with a really nice vintage Protipo!

@Greed75 Nice combo gauge that I spied in the picture (IMG:style_emoticons/default/shades.gif) Was that also your design?

I just saw the cookies behind the wheel.

Great job on the steering wheel though. I bet it feels good in the hand.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif) I see lots of stuff (IMG:style_emoticons/default/av-943.gif) I forget at least 99.9999% of it.

Thanks for the gentle reminder
