I have never thought about the steering wheel, a very visual part of the vehicle, i enhanced the wheel with a covering of silver foil and made the centre boss on the Lathe, most part's for the front of the 7 are now made, all for now on my sunday input, regards simon.

Looking good Simon, how accurate is your chequer plate, as I have to reproduce the same for a similar project I'm working on?
I'm guessing you did your research and it's just how it was.
