Mike got a new Momo Competition steering wheel with leather rim and horn button…toot toot! The horn button came with a scratch on it and he considered sending it back to get a new one, but in the end he decided to not mess around with all that and just installed it. He will still need to sort out the horn and turn signal cancellation to get them working, but at least it’s attached to the column now. As soon as we get the rear wheels, he’ll be able to lower the car to the ground and steer it around on it own four legs!
We got a lot of new deliveries this week, so Mike should have plenty to work on this weekend. To start off with, here’s the new shifter he got from Very Cool Parts. To quote Mike, “it’s just too pretty to cover up,” so I guess it will be installed exposed so that all may admire its beauty. Ahhh, men and their shifters…always wanting to show them off!
Mike put in an extra sheet of metal on the rear side panels (next to where the gas tank sits and behind the seats) to seal off the sides of the interior. He closed it off with metal, sealed it up with caulk, and finished it up with rivets….bada-bing, bada-boom!
