Steering wheel and hub kit.

My evo iv steering wheel has seen better days due to the sun getting to it and cracking it etc, toyed with the idea of getting it retrimmed but think it's too far gone and not too fussed about keeping the airbag as its probably well past its best by now anyway.
So I have picked a sparco suede steering wheel I like but what's the best hub adapter to buy and where from? Im looking at a flat rather than dished wheel so I can still reach the indicator and wiper switches with ease. I'd also like to keep the self cancelling indicator function and obviously one that comes with the airbag resistor also so I can get the warning out on the dash.
What's best and where from please?

Cheers Aj

I've bought mine from Rallynuts. My steering wheel comes from GT2I. They are cheap but great quality (often used in high spec rally cars)
The kit came with a resistor (just a 2 amp fuse with some wire attached to it and pins you have to put in the plug you disconnect).
I wasn't able to use the horn button so I've put a generic button on the steering column to activate the horn.

I cant remember the part number but if you search for my user name and SPLASH you'll find many posts. I bought the short boss as I also use a quick release.

Contact Driftworks. They supplied me with a really good hub mate. They will sort you out. Team are spot on.
