I received my steering wheel and hub. I am impressed with the wheel itself, honestly if the seller wouldn't have advertised it as a knockoff I'm sure I never would have known. Definitely a steal for $85 shipped.
The hub came from a different company and it was $21 shipped. I really shouldn't have expected much for the money but this is what was pictured in the ad.
However this is what I got.
As you can see both are cheap but the second one just screams China
. After a few emails back and forth with the seller on how he advertised one thing and shipped another he just refunded me and told me to toss it and not to bother returning it. I'm guessing the cost of him paying return shipping is probably more than he invested in it.
So now I'm stuck. Do I order another hub and hope for the best or mod this one to look better since it was free. I think we all know what I chose to do. A quick trip to Lowes and $1.30 later and I had this black ABS coupling. I removed the rubber piece from the hub, trimmed it down and kept fitting the coupling until it was tight. Now all I have to do is cut it down to the correct height, lightly sand it and paint it satin black.
I will be sure to update this thread once its mounted.
