    I want to change the steering wheel on my Bullitt, any suggestions, im not bothered about an airbag just want a nice looking steering wheel as I think the current Ford issue one is bloody horrible.
    Any pointers would be great.:tongue:

    The nicer factory style wheels are the fr500 and the 10th anniversary wheels. Be prepared to take out a second mortgage for these.

    As for aftermarket... not many people do this unless they're racing. They typically look a bit goofy with the hub since we have a large column cover.

    Vertex-USA has some of the nicest wheels on the market. You can also try NRG for a more affordable wheel or you could just get it wrapped by a place like http://www.redlinegoods.com/

    Nardi and momo are also good choices. Just make sure that the bolt patterns line up or if you need to use an adapter

    If you want to keep the bag a rewrap is pretty much your only option

    Looks good, how much did that run you and what was the turnaround time?

    Tony, totally off topic so I'll keep this short. What seat is that to the right of your wheel. It would go good with my stangs interior.
