retrofitting au momo wheel to el

Now yes I know this can be done if referred to by EFFaclon's thread of doing it to his car..

What I'd like to know is just how I would go about colour coding the airbag component of the steering wheel.

I really would like to buy one of these wheels, but not if it's going to look tacky due to it being mismatched colours.

The standard airbag colour in my el xr8 matched perfect to the au momo black & grey wheel.

Re: retrofitting au momo wheel to el

I have the grey taxi interior

I say taxi cos the s/wheel and dash remind me of my nights home in a taxi

Re: retrofitting au momo wheel to el

just a thought:-

maybe you should actually leave the airbag cover grey, so it ties the wheel in a little better? I tend to think that having a completely black steering wheel would look really weird, seeing as the rest of the dash is pretty much grey.

Re: retrofitting au momo wheel to el

Hrm, I might buy the wheel and fit it, and then see what happens.

Another thought, can I get the momo gear knob that came with au's as well? Or what's the deal there?

Re: retrofitting au momo wheel to el

AFAIK you can put an AU shifter on an EL, but you have to change or alter ir somehow, due to the 'rod' (what bit that is i have nfi) being plastic in the AUs and metal in EF/L. Or something like that.
