New MR2 Steering Wheel & Painted Dash
I hadn’t treated myself to any new goodies for my MR2 for a few weeks so I thought I’d just spruce up the interior of my ’2 a little bit!
First things first, my Momo Boss Kit. I’d heard the official Momo kits for Rev3+ cars were quite hard to come by and rather expensive (…so they say), so I was more than happy to find this one from a fella on eBay for £30 posted:
Now, a boss kit is no good without a nice new steering wheel to attach to it! I’d been deciding on a new wheel to buy for far too long, and had even created a shortlist (I’m very particular). I finally settled on a brand new Sparco Lap5. Not exactly the cheapest steering wheel around, but in my opinion, definitely one of the nicest. The mix of Alcantara and leather is lurrrvly.
Now the fun part…fitting it! I’d heard mixed opinions on how easy it is to remove an MR2 steering wheel, and luckily for me, it was incredibly easy. For some reason the removal of my stock steering wheel seemed different from the various guides I had seen on the ‘net. But all-in-all, a very straightforward process
I also decided to paint some of the dash plastics a nice gunmetal grey colour. This seems to compliment the interior nicely, and is something a little different from the usual colour-coded or silver themes.
…and now some pics of the finished article (and my sexy legs!)
Oh, and this blog post was also a good excuse for me to test the camera on my new Samsung Galaxy S2 …I’m happy with the results!
