Not much of a DIY tutorial. I just mod a 4 spoke mitsu steering wheel that has a bigger brass horn contact by adding old brass contact from my 3 spoke lancer steering which got cracks and sunburn. Used some copper conductive tape to stick them together. I do guitar repairs and the copper tape are use for ground shielding of the guitar wiring cavity. Hence I have bits and pieces in my workshop.

Here's the photo.


The one sticking out is the old brass horn contact.


The brass pin now in contact with the old brass ring which is smaller in diameter. :biggrin:


Tested the connection by touching the yellow wire to the steering shaft and it works!


Loving the new steering wheel.

Nardi classic (3 spokes, either silver or black) would be nice, for me. With some dish, even better.
But ultimately, up to the car owner to decide.

Since we will be seeing and holding the wheel everytime we are driving, so I think it is justifiable spending abit more getting a premium steering wheel. hehehehe

I always like 4 spokes better than 3. don't know why. hehe. but i'm quite satisfied with the current steering wheel. feels more firm than the previous lancer 3 spoke. :driver:
