The prototipo and a modified horn button...
Is this what we call a dashboard sleeper?..

Really nice, I love your interior/dash/wheel combo!

I used a steering wheel from a fiat 850.
bored out the rivets for the stock mount and made an adaptor out of an old (broken) stock steering wheel.
sourced a horn button and flattend out the fiat logo, looks great, should get some foto's of how it looks now..

After seeing Felix/DFL's sweet looking Passat TS steering wheel in this tread I began the hunt for one to fit in my car. After som tip I found on fore sale on "Tradera" (Swedish Ebay) and placed the winning bid, maybe higher than I liked but....  Grin


I redrilled a Luise hub, blasted and powder coated the hornring and monted the sw with stainless allen bolts.


This is the result in my 71 late looker, when my 67 is done (if it gets done) it will moved there.

That Passat wheel looks great, and you're not likely to see too many others.

Mine is a Nardi - got a woodrim one from an MX-5 to go in my wife's cab (eventually...) but saw this leather one a few years ago at VoWo and couldn't resist it for 25! Ideally needs the leather redoing as it's worn through on one piece.

Tried my new wheel on the 67 yesterday.
Original momo prototipo, but will need to modify indicator arm, or run quite a large spacer, as the wheel is totally flat  Embarrassed

This is what I am running, having a horn button made and wrapping it in the same color door panel you can see.


This wheel is very old school to me, who manufactured this wheel and what is the diameter?

Just want to share this steering wheel of mine. Got it about 8 years ago and im thinking its an Empi GT but doesnt have the stamp at the back. Came with an original boss kit and black button. The spline is definitely for volkswagen. When i first installed it, i saw the backside of the horn button and it has the wolfburg logo engraved. Maybe anyone has any info regarding this one? Thanks.

The horn button is not a VW modified. Empi offered this rare version. I have one too. It is made exactly as an Empi one.

Different versions were made :
- Black with silver Wolfsburg crest
- Full black. It was the one like yours, with the VW crest, but the plastic used is black, so you can't see any details.

Empi steering wheels were sold via different retailers. Empi of cours, but a bit later by IECO. IECO steering wheels where Empi but they didn't have the Empi logo on them and have the black of VW crest horn buttons.

I just bought the lot of Empi steering wheels from the original manufacturer and I have all the history for this one. I will give more info later.

Thanks for the info! Id sure love to know more history about this one. Been looking for any info over the years but to no avail. Im glad for your help. Im wondering myself why it has the VW crest underneath the full black logo, and tried to compare the button with other steering wheels but not one looks like it.

Just wanted to share my steering wheel (and dash). Original it has some kind of foam rim, but it is covered in nice black leather now.
For me it is the perfect steering wheel for my late model.



Cheers, Nick Koebrugge.

My buddy gave me/my car a VDM Coach wheel for her 50th birthday yesterday, and it took all of about half an hour this morning to decide to put it on. I'll be restoring it at some point in the future, but for now, I think I'll rock it as it is. Or maybe I'll get brave and try to leather wrap it.

Well since my car is going to be getting a ton of work done this winter, I'm hoping to get the cracks in the wheel filled in while the car's up on blocks (figuratively.) I was wondering if any of you guys would be able to lead me down the right path of resins/glues to fill them in? Thanks for any advice!

Hi Andrew,

Ive repaired 4-5 original steering wheels with a 2-component-kit from Patex.
It worked really well and I think it could work on your steering wheel.
But after some grinding and a bit of filler it needs to be repainted.

Awesome, thank you! As far as repainting it goes, I've been trying to work out what I want to do for that. I'll be sure to put up pictures of it when it's all done though!

Andrew,

Milliput works well. Also needs sanding and painting. I got mine from our local Boyes store in the craft section, or any craft shop or online. Easy to use and a good finish.  Wink

Milliput epoxy putty? I want to make sure I do it right and it stays in place for as long as possible.

I have had this Moto Lita steering wheel in storage for the past 20+ years. I've got
it from a friend who imported a Ghia from CA back then and he did'nt want to use
it due to the missing steering wheel boss.
I finnished my own steering wheel boss this summer and it all fits nicely in my Bug.
