Project Toyota Supra Mark IV: Part 13 – Nardi steering wheel plus more Stu Hagen and Speedhut gauges!


…and placed it inside a jump conector, and with about two feet of wire (green).

This picture shows the first iteration of the wiring, which was probably 12 inches too short. It didn’t work too well. Upon my first U-turn the wiring to the horn apparently got disconnected. I later found that a little over 2 feet of wiring did the trick. The horn button is also connected here solely for testing.  You’ll have to disconnect the spade connector going to it to pass the wire through the steering wheel.

 Here, the wire is passed, and our Nardi steering wheel is being fastened with our original 19-mm nut. Exciting times. We're using just one screw here to hold it in place.

To complete the install, we reconnected the spade connector to the horn and fastened the rest of the screws that lock the horn ring in place–and voila! This looks much better than before..

Next up was our new boost gauge. The goal was to come up with something that would match our new Stu Hagen gauges. We searched all over the place and couldn’t find anything. That is, until we came across Speedhut Inc. These guys offer all kinds of gauges ranging from mild to wild, and in various sizes. The website even lets you choose the colors of the needles, style of lettering, bezel style and coloring, etc. This is what we ended up with. Baller!
