I'm not planning on using any airbags so the rs wheel would be useless

Also unless you get a reworked rs wheel that was redone in suede or new leather they only last about a year due to color bleed.

I would never paint a steering wheel, RS wheels are not hard to get a hold of at all. In fact Germany sells refurbished ones in both suede and leather.

Finished Welding up the Front, Fitment looks good:




Finally nothing is holding it up but the bolts!


Started Welding up the rear. I have to trim a couple of the bolts and then clean up the threads but the fitment looks good.

The work is looking great, but this caught my eye, you're going to be to high if the foam is to be installed, and if not trial fit bumper to see if supported correctly.




Take a good look at the difference here, I believe you are a little high. Look where the outer edge of the crash bar come just above the 45deg angle inward bottom edge

Your right, it does look a bit high. I'm not planning on using the standard crash foam but I will make sure to do a test fit soon to make sure it will fit. Thanks!

Checked to make sure the bumper fit with where I had my crash bar placed and it fits great. I will be creating some minimal crash foam from my previous bumper foam so it shouldn't be a big deal.





Had to trim a bit from the exhaust hole and bottom of the chassis as well, I will take more pics of that later.
