Anything from EF EL AU - they come without the airbag or the airbag cover..

There is leather ones, coloured leather, wood or plastic - what ever you want really!

Depends, the Momo coloured leather ones are really nice and sporty looking, but if you've got a leather interior with woodgrain, then a Momo Wood and leather would probably match in better. Or if you want leather at a povo price then the standard black is the way to go!

well thats what i have now ,so i guess im a povo :( ,but it is starting to wear thin and since i dont have a airbag im after something NICE.
in terms of fatness ,how FAT ,not phat, is the el gt wheel cause if memory serves e correctly they are wood and leather.

cheers

if yours in an NC then i don't think you can fit EF/EL/AU wheels to your car - diff shape etc - you'd have to stick with EA/EB/ED model wheels i'd say! :?

Nah I think hes actually talking about the steering wheels

Because if you look at a EF/EL/AU steering wheel it is a diff shape to the EA/EB/ED wheels

lol nar i'm def referring to steering wheels! :P

the EA/EB/ED shaped s/wheel is diff to that of the EF/EL/AU's - hence why i'm under the impression you can't just chuck on a later model wheel - they have been designed to fit the airbag etc perfectly, where-as the earlier models didn't have that shaping to them... :?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the EA/EB/ED Steering wheel on a splined shaft? If so, as EL/EF/AU are on a square shaft then these wont fit on the earlier models.

oops, I read 94 fairlane n presumed (wrongfully) that it would be an early NF.
Being the modle before NF, i doubt it will fit then; will have choice of EA-ED steering wheels.
You could do a conversion n change the whole columb, but thats a bit tedious.

Diddt some of the late model ed/nc have the ef/el/au shape wheel aswell?

Got a pic of your interior mate, as its the only way we lnow what will fit lol.

Or find a pis of an ef sterringwheel/airbag n tell uf if its the same type. :(

Ok, working now, dont worry mate lol..

With that steering wheel you will need to use a ea/eb/ed style wheel not ef/el/au sorry.

You could always do something bold n do a interior change over :D
