Without seeing the interior finished...green trim, green doors...I'm thinking go the white steering wheel..but then a green steering wheel would be something different... :crazy:

go both...they are very easy to swap around when you feel like it. :idea:

I'm sure you love green but for me it's a LOT of green - I'd be looking to tone it down and probably go black or at least the darker green?

Was originally going black but then was told the white wheel was a nasco (????) accessory? Is this correct?
Don't want to upset the nasco nazis!

I think it was a dealer option on purchase then became a Nasco accessory later on???? Don't hold me to that. Tim Gall would know?

Paint looks like a mirror. Panel fit looks terrific. You've gone stock on the dash so I vote black wheel and stock knobs to match. Fantastic damo.
