    Default Is this what the steering wheel is made of?

    This looks like it could be the modern version of the 240Z steering wheel "wood".

    I think it is. Decades before Nissan built our steering wheels Henry Ford was trying to develop the technology as well but he was using hemp fibers.
    Wonder what the weight factor is. I could use a rust free Z body!

    It is oriented wood fiber in a resin. I have not been able to determine the wood, the color hints to me that it maybe teak
