"Right now I am working on reproducing the geometric line plate at the bottom of the steering wheel. The plate is already on the unit so I wonder if they just turned it over and etched the pattern on the back. I may give that a try. I have copied the pattern from a picture of the steering wheel, sized it to fit the plate, and have reproduced it in Fusion 360. My concern is that the plate is awfully thin to try and etch with the equipment I have. Will need to do some experimentation."

For the geometric line plate: What colors were used for the back ground and lines?
It looks like it was covered with 1/8* plexiglass.
If plexiglass was used were the lines etched/engraved on the bottom side of the plexiglass?

good questions Vert. I will probably try to etch it on Plexiglas and see how that works.

Update on my progress with the bottom pattern.

I am still working on it. I have no knowledge of using CAD software so this is a great learning experience for me. Making progress however. Have learned how to do much of it but still haven't got it perfect like I want.

OK, I think I've got the steering wheel bottom pattern reproduced in 3d. This picture is to etch the pattern on the bottom of a piece of Plexiglas, that's why the pattern is reversed. It could also be etched on the top of a metal plate fairly easily. Now I need to obtain some etching router bits.

As I showed on my wheel, I merely flipped it over... Cnc etching it would require a precise small machine. Since I was already planning to make the stickers for the switch labels, was just going to attempt a sticker here as well just to test.

Awesome job on the knobs sly, I will try this route as well... I've been hunting down and found a couple possible c5 & c6 cars I may start my base on soon, but just had a mid 80s black firebird t-tops car fall into my hands last month, so all the parts are starting to arrive for its true calling.

Still waiting on my final steering wheel Rizoma hub piece to arrive though... Building a whole kitt seems to be a faster endeavor than getting some of these pieces.

Yep, I assume that's what they did. Is it aluminum? Seems to be glued down as well as the screws, did you use hot air to remove it?

Where are you getting it from if I might ask?
