    Default Steering wheel ID

    I am trying to figure out what steering wheel this is so I might have a chance in hell of finding a replacement horn button for it.


    Sorry for the crappy picture quality, I cant seem to get the camera to take a close up of the emblem, but it looks something like either CPC or JPC england. Middle letter is a P anyway, the other two are all stylized.

    Edit: deleted the two extra large shots, see last post for smaller better one.

    How the heck did you manage to get that first image aligned WAAAYYYYYY over there on the right. What a PITA.

    Looks to be a boost/exhaust temp gauge from Scarab. Interesting. Never seen one of those before.

    The gauge is a scarab boost/egt combo unit. Not a very popular option as they only sold 5(I think) turbo scarabs. Sold the rest to the 6cyl turbo guys I think. Mine isnt even turbo /fail. As for that shot, it was the only one I had with the horn button on, it fell apart shortly after that shot was taken when I got the car. Ive been trying to ID the wheel so I could attempt to get a replacement button. IF it helps at all the wheel was 100% for sure made in england(its stamped on there) I just cant ID the badge on it. I traced out the logo on this shot, hopefully it will help?

    Yeh, I have, but for the life of me I can't remember where. Astrali perhaps? Think I saw them advertised on UK ebay. If I remember rightly it was a guy dealing in MGB's.

    Nope, don't know what it is. That is a lot of bumps with no one recognizing it. You could try listing it on Ebay on one of their "free listing days" with a rediculously high price and ask in your ad for info or anyone recognizing it. That would be a lot more exposure than you are getting here and you just might get the answer. If you do find out what it is, be sure to let us know.

    New folks come and go... Thats a good idea on the ebay thing, I will have to try that. Im not trying to go nuts with the bumps, thats why I leave it at least a week before I say something. It may be a slim chance that it will be recognized, but I have none if its buried

    Is this the same wheel you are looking for?
