Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Hi Guys,

Just a quick question.

Looking to sort the steering wheel and have seen both Mickey's and Alex's but wondered if you used a universal 320mm Momo  wheel

Cheers, Tone

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

I used a universal 245mm MOMO on the 360, looks and feels great, but IMHO a 330/335 would better still. I've tried various sized wheels by printing image to scale and superimposing the Thrustmaster centre, to check if the spokes line up (you should do this before buying the wheel). Not found a 320 sized wheel that lines up, but would be good if you could find one. I fancy a black suede momo with yellow stitching now. You should be able to keep the paddleshift, and get the start button and manettino to work (I did, except the manettino, but know someone who did that too), see here:



I've done this mod twice, on the 355 replica originally back in 2009 (using Momo EVO [not too keen on the chrome bits on that wheel ended up spraying them black], as here:



and on the 360 I have now, as follows:



Oh, and be sure to keep the thrusrmaster F430 pedals if you have them, I've fitted those chromed cast pedals to my 360 they look and feel great (and work well)

Just checking out a 320mm wheel now, advertised on ebay, using a 23" monitor, increasing to actual size, and using this paper template to check:

Cheers Brian,

I have ordered a 458 Thrustmaster, so will wait for it to arrive before trialling your methods and ordering a steering wheel.

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Hi tone ,guys well a bit of a slow couple of days , I fitted the centre console up and went to bolt it in the car which ended up being a bigger job,  as I had never had the seats and console in all together with the seat belts bolted in , the problem being the Peugeot seat belts hit the console so I had to take everything back out fit 2 new universal seat belts ,problem solved all back together .
Next up the windsreen guy came and fitted the windscreen he rounded off the corners as usual so that looks sweet ,
Then I realised we had no interior mirror so off to the breakers to get one of them , so not as much done as I hoped but hope to get back on track in the next few days cheers jd , here a pic for now windsreen in

Re: Sparx01 build dairy

Hi tone , guys , well a busy couple of days with some late nights but I'm getting back on target , I spent yesterday modifying the lower rear suspension arms to get rid of the negative camber created by dropping the ride height , then set up the rear suspension and did the rear brakes and handbrake ready for the mot , then started making the lower windsreen scuttle panel , next up was to paint the black on the lower part of the rear bumper and the top half of the engine cover, today iv been on with the front suspension and fitting new discs and pads and giving her a service , tomorrow it's time to start the rear defuzers and finish the scuttle panel . Here's a few pics for now cheers jd
