Default GT500 Steering Wheel Installed

Ordered it and got this bad boy installed. I am in love. Aside from the fact that the wheel is brand new, this alcantara is without a doubt the softest thing ever. I think I might have my lady wrapped in it......with contrast stitching. lol

I liked my GT premium wheel, but I love this GT500 wheel. Now I need to get a GT500 shift boot and a new **** to tie it all together.




I also painted the Brembos yellow, yeah it's loud, but I like the contrast. Sorry for the bad cell phone pics, but I just snapped a few after I got to work.

Paint the rears too.

That wheel looks beautiful, I'm considering getting one as my wheel is getting long in the tooth....

I love my Boss 302 steering wheel, same idea as the shelby but it's Alcantara all the way around and it feels so much better than my old IUP wheel. Especially on hot days since it doesn't heat up like leather.

Awesome! Just got the same wheel myself. It is so so so nice.

Also there are several places that sell replacement Brembo decals on ebay Some black ones would look legit!

Thanks for the compliments guys. I liked the Boss wheel too but I like having the leather and suede together, I think it gives a nice contrast between the two materials. The suede also doesn't seem to get as hot as the leather does which makes it nice when the temperature is 106. I had some Brembo stickers made but I didn't like how they came out. The seller redid them for me and I just got them in the mail the other day so I'll be putting those on as well.
