    Most of my steering wheels are packed away because of my ongoing garage renovation/expansion, but I thought this steering wheel hanger might be of interest to someone.

    I've been generating a lot of wood puck waste from various hole saw uses (wall sconces, dryer vents, etc) that I thought could be put to good use rather than tossed out in the trash. So... I "hollowed" them out using a smaller hole saw to make a wooden doughnut. The hollowed section leaves space for the horn button when the wheel is mounted. This was then glued to a 1/4" plywood disk and painted. A small section of aluminum french cleat is mounted on the backside of the ply. Lastly, mounting holes were drilled onto the opposite face. A couple of in-progress mounts are shown in the first photo. I used aluminum C-section (turned up, so it's actually a U-section) as upper trim for a wall which acts as the lower half of the french cleat. The second photo shows a test batch of three wheels hanging. If the C-section doesn't work for you, mount another cleat on the wall and hang the wheel like you would framed art.

    I'm still working on the garage so I haven't had a chance to unpack and hang the other wheels. But as soon as I finish, I'll post a photo. It could be a while though....

    Today I installed a correct, leather wrapped Petri steering wheel into the CSL. Thanks to my friend @Keshav for supplying this beautiful wheel. The original leather wrap is in truly remarkable condition.

    Cheers!

    Floor mats are a bit spartan but I’m sure he has some coco mats on order. :D

    Lovely wheel, great seller!

    This is the last one I swear. The button is a momo of mine, just stuck on there to fill a void. Now I need to catch up with @Wladek! :D Next steps are to cut it up and rechrome.

    Beautiful wheel @Dan Mooney ! Has those spokes been re-done? They look a tad shiny, which looks great BTW. If so, what was the process?

    Petri 38 came back from re-chroming on Wednesday, grip is glued in, so here are the pics: 20180713_200329.jpg 20180713_200333.jpg

    Surface is perfect, i think it's even too perfect for me...
    Today i was thinking - "i have perfect 38... do i need concave 40?... maybe to sell it?"
    & after looking at it mounted on steering column (i know it's pretty weird mounted on chair, but i used my imagination at that moment) - i said "no way!"
    Look like it is perfect lined up with stalks
