Steering wheel cowell

Postby BRUC3 » Mon Aug 30, 2010 6:16 pm

Anyone used a cowel from the standard mini to cover the column on their buggy?

Looked through a few photos and seen a few people with cowels, but cant tell if their Mini or not!

I believe they are mini ones Bruce but they need modifying to suit. It needs a grove cut into it as it won't fit over the steering coloumn metal piece. I went the whole hog and smoothed mine then resprayed it matt black, haven't fitted it yet though.

This is the one i have Bruce, just modified with a groove down it at the rear so it fits over the steering metal piece...........if that makes sense??? You will see what i mean if you get one and try and fit it.
