I found a nice looking suede wheel which "requires drilling". I have no clue how to mount it. Does anyone know how much fab would be needed for something like this? No airbag option here, naturally..

I bought a black wheel from a 99 SC400 but it was in rough shape so I had it redone, I went with German perforated leather and black alcantara with red stitching. I redid my whole interior last summer so this is one of the pieces I got done.

Thanks! I got a bunch of pieces done so he gave me a package deal. But if I got it done just by itself I would have paid three bills.

Just picked up this new steering wheel...MOMO Retro! Will be installing it this upcoming weekend. Can't wait to get rid of the old steering wheel.

Found a good deal on a steering wheel from a 98 GS400, does anyone know if it will work on my 93 SC4? Not concerned about cruise control. Looking at the guys pic. on the internet the wheel looks a lot fatter than the ES330. Can anyone verify?

Pulled this gem out of a '99 Rav4 from the pick'n'pull today. package deal for $41 ..

Downside is I have the airbag light on and it wont reset. Soldered my own harness and even cut and swapped the colored wires to see if it would work but nothing did. So to confirm, a '99 single stage airbag does NOT plug and play with a 92.

Stellar find! I didn't know the Rav4 had such a nice, contoured wheel. I confirmed the same thing on my own with a '00 RX300 steering wheel. My airbag light was already on (I failed repeatedly in clearing the code 22), so I haven't bothered yet splicing harnesses to connect the different single-stage harnesses up...

^ yeah I was walking by and just happen to look inside, the car was in great shape, no idea why it was there but the wheel is in 9/10 shape.

If anyone could help me get the airbag/ cruise control to work that would be awesome. I always thought the airbag and cruise control functionality were hand in hand, if the airbag didn't work neither would the cruise control. It's at least that way with Honda/Acura.

I already made this myself and it didn't work, it's literally 2 wires, a blue ground and a yellow signal wire. It's very simple, use the OEM clip from the clockspring of the Rav4 and the airbag side of a SC. I got both clips from wrecked cars at the salvage yard, I of course would not clip my perfectly good airbag from my car lol... VERY self explanatory, saved $28 dollars..

There's also this link but didn't know if this is the same as a Rav4 setup since it is only repairing the cruise control and not the airbag system itself.

Please help pick some brains, I obiovusly searched but couldnt find an answer.. Thanks
