Thanks And I got the idea for the 550 cord from another guy on the forum, but he did his in red. Oh and you will need about 50ft of cord, depending on how tight you wrap it ( I did mine really tight).

My steering wheel look horrendous but I have been to cheap to get it reupholstered! I will probably pull the core out and just use the outer so the wheel doesn't get too thick.

Yea I remember yours is pretty bad. I thought about pulling the inner out as well, but decided that I liked the girth of it will the core in... no homo!

I actually used the Fusion paint that is made for plastic, the guy at ACE said it would stick the best. I'm still trying to figure out if I like the black though, might end up ordering some paint and color matching it.

The lights look good. I want to do a projector retro kit but I've had zero time. Might have to do this for now if I get a chance.

I agree, plus no use in buying some if I'll be upgrading to the HID housings later.

Yea. I actually am very happy with the way it turned out. I was skeptical at first because I thought it might look bad at different angles since it's just on the outside, but you can't really notice.

I know my brother will be doing it soon, I'm sure he'll put some pics up, if not I don't mind doing a little sample piece to give you an idea of how it will work.
