It matches the wood on the dash, shift knob, door caps, and switch plinth.
Been working off and on it for more than 2 years. Now waiting for the finish to cure and then remove the temp hub and mount it in the car.

Thanks for the nice comments guys. The finish cote should be cured enough to install it tomorrow. Seems like I've been waiting for this day forever.

Here are a couple photos with it in the car. Makes a world of difference compared to the original wheel. I also made it about an inch smaller diameter. Easier to get in and out but still has good control.

Your wheel looks great!

I've attached a photo of one my cousin is doing for his dads GT6. This is a wheel that's been sitting on my wall for a couple years, had it sold and the cover literally fell apart in my hands. So it's getting a new life someday. My cousin and I just hope it prompts my uncle to paint his gt6! Kyle.

Kyle, is that polished or did he have it chromed?
