    Default Steering wheel pics?

    Would anyone be willing to share pics of your steering wheels?

    It's on my mind to find a new one -- mine is pretty worn, and I can't find a cover that I like.

    TIA!

    Default Wheels

    Wow, The Momo and the Grant wheels look pretty nice in there. I have an 83 I think I would love to have anything but the cheesomatic that is in there right now. What kind of suggestions do you guys have for changing a wheel out?

    Love the wheels!

    But the Grant is my favorite.

    Anyone have an old school three spoke wheel?

    Side note, but what kind of equalizer is that and how did you install it? Do you have any close-up pics of it? I think it looks awesome!

    Lol...I have a quick ratio steering rack and oversized power steering pulley, so it's kind of like driving a go-kart. When you turn the wheel, it turns immediately.

    Thanks, It's a ford EQ, it lights up red and everything. It works with my factory deck when I had it in there, it's all hooked up with harnesses. It's actually the reason why I joined this site, to try to find out info, but I was told it wasn't an option, so somebody at some point may have added it, or perhaps it was dealer installed... but I don't know how likely that is. I also have an overhead clock with dome lights (clock works, but dome light is not hooked up right now), I think that may be from an Escort GT??
