    Ha! So much for my not sending a wheel overseas! I actually have a friend in Germany evaluating a local leather guy now. I was secretly hoping for a good option stateside. :)

    I particularly like the hula dancer. I have her on the dash of my lifted Jeep Cherokee, license plate "SNO KAT". The irony is that I only drive the SNO KAT in the winter, typically blazing through drifts of snow - all while my hula dancer bobs around with a smile on her face. :D

    Found the poster! ;) Pretty cool although they left out a few nice ones for sure.

    A win for me. I finally have a real Petri horn button. Also, I took the utility knife to my Petri 38, which is now at the chrome shop. I’m hoping that introducing more parts to chrome will help expedite the little pieces that I am waiting on. They chrome it then polish, then glass bead it to give it a matte finish. Hopping they don’t screw it up. :D

    The 38 looks huge sans foam:

    I feel kind of bad for the chrome shop. It is so beautiful in polished chrome but they need to redo it in matte.

    Did you ask them for matte, but they did polished instead? It does look very nice.

    Yes. They were very cool about it. I said I was in no rush and they could stick it at the bottom of the queue. He said “No no”, it will be done on Monday. Apparently they can’t glass bead it. They need to strip it and rechrome.

    It obviously doesn’t look much different from your typical hot rod wheel in shiny chrome. The difference is that the chrome is stunning. I tried walking around to try to accurately photograph it but I gave up.

    After leaving the chrome shop I have strong desire to drop my bumpers off. :D

    I do have that model of NK steering wheel, not mounted in a car. The person I bought it from included shims to give it clearance. The shorter shim is the same height as the hub is deep. The taller shim sticks up 3-4 mm above the hub.

    DQ posted some interesting images elsewhere on this forum. https://www.e9coupe.com/forum/threads/tech-2018-ohne-words.29888/

    Among them was this photo of a CSL mit a steering wheel that may be slightly different from those posted to this thread. This is probably a Momo Prototipo. The Momo and similar "Dino" are both of Italian origin, but have different screw configurations. The Momo as noted by Markos, the screws are at the 12:00 and 6:00 positions. On the "Dino," the screws are at 9:00 and 3:00 positions. And then, there is the similar "Dino" with a 5-screw configuration.

    The wheel on the carb CSL is a bmw CSL offering for the original cars. It is a 380mm Alpina wheel made by momo. It “droopy” hub, akon to the Ferrari 308. They are as rare as hens teeth but multiple forum members have them as a collectible or on their carb CSL.

    The Dino wheel is a factory momo wheel momo. It is based on a momo prototipo but has three wrapped spokes like a momo Sebring. “Dino” is also an inexpensive steering wheel company based on the nardi/raid bolt pattern. Momos have a 70mm bolt pattern with holes at 12pm and 6pm. Nardi/Personal/Raid are 74mm with holes at 3PM and 9pm.

    Thanks for the clarification. Easy for the uninformed to confuse the Momo wheel originally fitted to the 246 Dino and the steering wheels bearing the Dino imprimatur. They were both made in Italy. :rolleyes:

    Following your post, I zoomed in on DQ's photo to confirm that the hex screws are at the 12:00 and 6:00 positions. I also reviewed your pretty Prototipo images located earlier on this thread. Your restored Prototipo has two holes in the horizontal spokes and three holes in the vertical spoke. Although not immediately clear unless you lighten the CSL image, that wheel appears to have only two holes in each spoke. Does this indicate a different wheel style (droopy) or size? Is one more desirable than another?
