Carbon fiber control panel for standard 6 bolt wheel

I made this 2mm carbon fiber control panel prototype to mount behind any standard 6 bolt steering wheel allowing 4 buttons to be installed within easy extension of thumbs and without interference with handling or sight.




(note steering wheel is tilted up)



Price USD$100 per piece shipped :mm_emthup

GREAT job!
Imagine what kind of magic,multi-colored buttons that could be used!
I have that 2mm CF on my R/C truck and there are different "grades".
Used for the frame. Broke it. It will be fine for button pushing.
Those plates are expensive as H*LL!
Try Penguin or Dragon:

Light and strong CF has a birch wood inner core. Just an FYI.
(Cheaper to buy,also.)

A platform for your own custom bluetooth/wifi/wireless relay buttons for fingertip control while you drive, 2mm Grade A carbon fiber was used because of it's high tensile strength and thinness...add something 'new' to 'old-school' cool. Made in Canada.

Bolt-on modification to most aftermarket wheels. Besides my own, I have one more ready to go ...PM if interested.
I'm thinking it may not fit my aftermarket steering wheel... I have a Grant GT wheel.... GRT-414, I believe based on the pics I found... let me look it over tomorrow when I'm home and I'll let you know.

If not, maybe you could release a different design that has the "paddles" moved a bit....

5 bolt wheels use an adapter ring

Workin' on it...that'll be the kicker! :)
