    Looks good! Did you put in finger tip grooves on the back side for extra grip?

    Thank you
    No I didn't put finger notched......that is a difficult task. I definitely was considering it. Just getting them consistent and not too deep especially with mainly hand tools. But the grip feels great and comfortable.

    Have you considered wood laminate gauge and dash panels to match?

    I think you could really add some elegance by doing that!

    Yes, this actually matches fairly close now with my stock panels. I dont know if you seen my previous post here on the last page (post #40) but I can make inlays for our dashes.....

    That looks great, fine work you did there. I understand why you didn't do the finger grooves. As awesome as it would be, my OCD would hit overdrive if they weren't perfect. A matching dash panel would look sweet!

    Glad you finally had time to put it all together and get it installed. Unfortunately I know exactly what you mean!

    That looks very nice! Kudos on the finished product.

    i have a similar wheel on my 1980 Mark Twain boat, although nowhere near as nice anymore.

    Wow that really 'works' with your interior. Looks like it belongs there from the factory. Killer craftsmanship.
