    Well, another couple of shots from the weekend at Gaydon





    It's not exactly a car to put on show, so it was out in the carpark all day.

    Satin black hides everything!

    I notice it's a J reg but you've got the later style airbag wheel. How did you fit that?
    Looks mean btw.

    I did hang around a short while, but i had plenty of people to say hello to, and trying to get an internet connection.
    I didn't even get a chance to look at anything to the left of the main road in!

    It's a good job there were plenty of snappers about, as i missed quite bit!

    the steering wheel is from an e46 B3 that crashed a good few years ago.

    What i needed to do was take the e46 slipring, and chop it down, quite severely infact.
    I haven't had any problems with it for the 3-4 years i've had it, but i wouldn't recommend it to anyone as there is the chance it could slip out of alignment and catch something and lock the steering!

    The spines on the steering wheel are the same, and also the position of the indicator self canceller, but when the plastic is removed for it to fit, nothing holds the cartridge together, so if you drop it, it spools out 1m of ribbon cable that will never go back!

    when fitted, it's locked behind the wheel and the column, so won't go anywhere, but you could say it's loose on the column shaft, and without the indicator canceller being reshaped to skip past the base of the indicator stalks, there is a slight posibility it could hit it square on and catch.

    The controls won't work obviously, they need to send data to a cruise control module, or an inbuilt OEM radio, but they have been wired to light up with the rest of the dash, and the 2 gear change buttons behind the wheel also work, but aren't connected to anything as i haven't found a use for them.

    I'm going to be at Santa Pod for sure, although i might be working on a friend's stand. That'll mean even less of a walkaround!

    Last year i stopped in a hotel down there somewhere too, not sure if that's the plan this year.
