    Custom Steering Wheel Adapter

    YES....I searched first read and re-read plus learning new stuff is like a brain orgasm

    Anywho...I have a stock steering wheel I'm going to modify. It was free so was the NRG wheel so failure is an acceptable option as long as I learn something in the process. My idea is to cut the outer wheel off and simply bend the arms in to appropriate position. Drill then tap.

    First- If this will result in an immediate failure. Someone, please stop me.

    Second- Will the metal material/crafting process allow me to bend it?
    Second Part II- Can I heat the metal and bend it that way. As far as structural integrity of the wheel is concerned. I just want to make sure it's not going to come off in my hand during an autocross run.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Once I start the actual building of from a stock wheel I'll take as many pictures as I can to document.

    Which stock wheel are you talking about, the early non-airbag, the first gen airbag/lotus wheel, the second gen airbag wheel, or the third gen wheel?

    Curious as to if it could also be done on an Ion wheel... have a spare hockey puck wheel I could cut up and adapt an aftermarket one...

    There are ways to do it but not many that I would consider safe to do so. Best option is to build an adapter for the hub. I'm not sure if there is enough material to machine down the factory hub to make an adapter to the 6bolt hub.
