Went and exchanged the wheel this morning, the larger size is perfect but when I got home I realized the screws to attach the new one were missing from the box so I had to make a trip to Elliott's hardware 20 miles away since I knew they would have the right sizes... so 240 miles of driving in 2 days got me this.





And here's my view with the wheel where I like it.

I would have gone with removable hub, that way you have extra security if you needed it.

From a theft stance or safety?

Theft. You might decide the power tour coming through DFW is your jam, and worry all night at the hotel that your car is one of the ones that gets stolen every year or something. Hard to steal a car that doesn't have a steering wheel.

Pretty hard to steal one that won't start too... they don't run very well without a rotor under the distributor cap.

They couldnt start one of mine (after fucking up the column so they could turn the wheel) so I got woken up by the police asking if i knew my car was around the corner in the middle of the road. I drove it back home after flipping the kill switch on.

They wouldnt have been able to roll it down the street to try to start it if it didnt have a steering wheel...

Gotcha... Truth be told though, it's 6 screws to remove it, easy enough.

I wired mine up so that if you try to start the car without holding down the passenger side window up button, it honks the horn.

It's not really too big of a concern for me at the moment as I don't have plans for the car to stay anywhere for that long outside of my garage...

I put an ad in the classifieds with both of those. Feel free to make me an offer, I could use the garage space.

Working on replacing the heater core... this was fun. I got the old one out and new one in last night, just have to try to finish buttoning it all back up tonight if I can get free time in the garage.

I got it all finished up and went to the Carrollton GTG last night only to discover leaving the house that my speedo didn't work nor did my turn signals. I must have pulled the speedo cable loose from the cluster accidentally while the dash was pulled out and I'm betting the orange wire to the hazard switch got disconnected since the flashers still work, I'll figure it out in the next day or so... but other than that my car has no leaks and heat so I'm back in business!

Man I'd like them but getting them would pretty much seal up switching over to black interior.

Got back to working on the car a bit yesterday and today. The car is getting the ATS Brembo fronts, 43mm rears, power stop pads and rotors. I've got all the calipers painted now, with the stickers on the fronts under some clear coat. I'm using the VHT Caliper paint so hopefully it holds up well. Next step is to get the car in the air and pull the rear caliper brackets so I can clean them up and paint them since they are all rusty but I need the brackets for the IRS/Cobra brakes. Then I will also need to pull the fronts then get to installing and bleeding them.

I will also need to remember while it's on jack stands to pull the steering shaft off the rack to try to recenter my steering wheel after I replaced it.
