    Hello Brad,

    What materials do you like to work in? What tools do you have available? Are there any 1/16th steering wheel out there that could be modified to your need?

    Hey Don,
    I have the steering wheel from the kit, though it is has three instead of four points of contact. I think metal rod of some sort would look the best, but not sure how to make the spreaders so they don't look clunky. I don't have a lathe. I mostly work in plastic at this point.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Long pins, hemming pins from a fabric shop, or on -line, specimen pins used by museums for insects, . . . super glued together in flat bundles, and maybe try the kneadable epoxies that are like a clay. These can be used to bond the bundles to your steering wheel. Fingernail sanding 1:16 MG TC banjo style steering wheel sticks to trim and shape. Auto body filler to help make it pretty. Prime and paint.

    I do recommend bare Stainless Steel wire over painting something else Silver or "Chrome". (-so don't forget to mask off your spokes if this is the path you choose.)

    Good luck! Let us see your progress, MG's are under-represented here, and that's a shame!

    Thank you Don. These are great suggestions. I'm going to do a bit of online shopping for needles now!

    Cheers.
