Me personally I left either the main horn or thumb horns disconnected can't remember which I used but now, too many sleeps... My wiring was a mess when I got mine and took a while to sort out... Now it's in storage, but I can't see me going back to it from a FG wheel...

For the record, wire colours more or less apply to std wheel too should anyone be reading this in the future...

Cheers,
Tim

i won't be going with any 'airbag' type/style of steering wheel ... not interested. these are what i hope to use

http://s1004.photobucket.com/user/mad2_ ... g%20Wheels

the momo with cut wiring from the thumb horns was cut for some reason & will be repaired with ones removed [in full] from the 'damaged' on [needed repair anyway]. the 'wood spoke' one will only be used on runs & along with the cruise centres i also have the 'standard' momo centre which doesn't have cruise buttons [it's errr 'somewhere' hopefully safe :mrgreen: ]. you will also see that one has the same 'extra' wire lead :roll:



along with

for everyday driving.


worst part with the momo's is finding another 'adapter' as the three shown all have differant bases. ones maybe XF [? single contact for horn?] with one i'm pretty sure is correct for the EA/EB/ED & other a 'slight' variation of the correct EA/EB/ED unit?? which i think i asked about ages ago

Nope... You didn't understand me... The AU made the FG wheel simple and more plug and play... My ED momo wheel, when I fitted it to my ED arrived from Ebay with the wiring in shambles... Took a fair while to sort it all out and clean the mess up...

Each to their own of course, but I din't think you'll find an E series wheel that is as nice to hold as the FG one... Even the BA/BF wheel isn't bad, just the airbag pad is hideous... Plus the FG wheel gives me stereo control, separate set+ and set- buttons (which admittedly you can get on an EF/EL wheel) and the bottom right hand side button which I use for odometer control...

I don't even mind the wheel on my work PX ranger... It could be fitted to one too I'd reckon as long as it's the same square shaft... I haven't driven the XLT but to see what the leather PX wheel is like, the cheap vinyl one is OK but...

Cheers,
Tim
