WOWSER is it better quality than the POS grant Stuff.

This going to make for a nice install on the new ididit tilt column.
Are you saying that the GT Performance horn mount and button has the same 3 bolt pattern as the Grant?

I think the steering wheels with the 9 bolt hubs like the Moto Lita and Lecarra's seem to have a better quality hub and horn setup.

I ultimately went with a Grant wheel and opted for the higher quality GT Performance install kit and horn button.

I think it looks ok and the wood is pretty darn close to the dash but I wish there was a 14" replica of the OEM deluxe wheel. At least I can get in and out of the car easily now.

i would like to try a smaller something but the fat wood doens't quite look right. A fat black maybe.
I got a GTP hub and two horn kits in my auction haul.
I have the Deluxe wheel now and when I have to spin the wheel alot I end up hitting one of the horn buttons almost every time.

I went with this 14 inch Volante steering wheel. I'm happy with it so far, but have only had it a year or so. If you get s smaller wheel, you'll want the shorter turn signal lever. I like the original wheel, but it was a bit thin and didn't work well with the fox body seats.
