Hi guys,

I just bought a new steering wheel for my EF, see

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll ... %3AIT&rd=1

This means I will have to remove my STD steering wheel, and transfer my airbag to the new wheel.

Is this easy enough to do?

Will I need any special tools?

Alternatively, my car is in at The Spoiler Shop Perth being fitted with a Venom Bodykit etc.

Could I just ask them to fit it when I pick the car up today?

Thanks guys!
I've done a lot of work to my car since my last post (extractors, high flow CAT, 2.5" Lukey, EL XR6 intake pipe with large snorkel, Fully adjustable shift kit, brushed alloy dash kit, been getting Venom bodykit fitted ..picking up today, also had custom bonnet scoop fitted with hole going thru' bonnet to the snorkel!

Should look (and drive) like a whole new car!

Should I do an update & post some new pics?

Hey Nesa,
Venom kit cost me a cool $3300.00!
Not cheap, but apparently only 3 or 4 cars (including mine) in WA have it!
I looked at XR kits, which are only $2500.00 approx. but the Venom is more sleek & subtle, and a bit more original!
I have got pics that I took today, just gotta get round to posting 'em (have to resize them to post 'em in the gallery, which is a bit of a pain!)
Will do ASAP.
But hey, ...I can tell you it looks f**k AWESOME!!!
