    Hello

    I just finished my homemade steering wheel.

    Wheel is made from layers of mdf, hydrodipped for carbon finish. Handles are mdf too, finished with rubber spray.

    "display" is just a dummy cause i use VR but its exactly real size, easy to install lcd if needed.

    3 x 12 pos rotary switches

    2 x thumbwheel rotary encoders

    8 x Knitter switces

    Martin Ascher Paddle Shifters

    You can see some build pictures here http://s121.photobucket.com/user/PahaMaku/library/F1 steering wheel

    Brilliant work..........was the mdf cnc machined? Would love to see more pics but your link does not work.

    What rubber spray did you use for the handles?
