    I'm the wrong person to ask about the black. I just didn't like it. Shady got his wheel done in black so hopefully he'll post up some pics soon.
    The extra thick padding is a must!

    Can someone that has their wheel removed measure the diameter and count the splines on the steering shaft for me ?
    I have to order an adapter hub and the V is 2 hours away...

    Thanks

    Re: Alcantara teaser

    Love the look and feel of Alcantera!!! Great mod! I'd love to do this to my car with the V2 shifter knob to match. Is there a writeup somewhere of how to do the steering wheel swap? I certainly wouldn't want to set of the airbag on accident or mess up the clips.

    Re: Alcantara teaser

    I'm glad you shared this, looks great! I actually contacted Dallas last year about this same thing, cool to see an actual V result! I haven't done mine yet because I've been trying to come up with a solution for the ugly ass airbag center cover with ugly sticker Cadillac emblem.. Been thinking over possibly trying to cut out the emblem of a V2 Steering wheel and have dallas wrap the center piece and then figure out a way to attach that V2 emblem.

    Looks great. Got to love Alcantara. One of the few things I miss about my C6 are the alcantara pieces from Down South Vettes. Wish there was a vendor that was doing D shaped wheels like DSV or Apsis for the CTSV.
