Be careful what you ask for.

Now I'm curious to see steering wheels at this rate...

The posts above are gold.

On a more serious note, here is my interior setup.


Unfortunately, the shift boot/**** are cut off but it's a charcoal grey weighted Skunk2 **** (same color as the inner part of the steering wheel) with red H pattern and a black leather boot w/ red stitching from Redline Goods.
If you're interested, I can snap a better picture tomorrow if you'd like.

The wheel is a 350mm Nardi with 80mm dish, I forget what name Nardi gives it. I LOVE this wheel. I'm 6'1 so the 20mm less in diameter vs stock combined with the 80mm offset is great.

All in all, I love my wheel and shift ****/boot combo. I still need to buy some sort of low profile shift boot retainer but I'm lazy.. Anyone have any suggestions?

I imagine a Skunk2 shift **** would come out of the box requiring significant additional machining work, not fit the shifter it's advertised to fit, and then come loose constantly during operation.

They offer the shift **** in the correct thread pitch. M10x1.25? It fit good out of the box and hasn't come loose in the year I've owned it. The H pattern is off by about 15 when tight though. I'm guessing some sort of shift boot retainer would fix that.

Does the skunk2 **** arc the starter or stick the throttle wide open?

Apologies for missing the punchline on that one. I hope you got a decent chuckle out of it.
