The new steering wheel.

The new steering wheel for my Batboat arrived on January 21st.

Delivered to my door by a uniformed UPS agent.

I ordered it from Mooneyes along with some other custom auto odds and ends.

There are some differences from the original but it still exceeds my expectations.

The original was of an unknown diameter, this is 15 inches. It had three holes per spoke, this four. Original spokes were spaced evenly, this isn't, perhaps to allow uninterrupted view of gauges.

There are more differences but as of this typing this is currently as close as I could find in a new steering wheel.

Its so well made I have no complaints.
