Love the leather hood strap. What color is it? Dark blue? It's fantastic!

Thanks. It's black lacquer. The stripe is a bit of a cue ball white. I wanted to give it a bit of a vintage country road cruiser rather than a track car. We have a lot of sweet roads here in western PA.

I found a local man that does leather work. He made the hood strap then a pouch mounted on the back wall between the seats and a saddle bag that hangs over the console just in front of the gear shift. Made to hold phones and sunglasses.

Thanks.

It's a Moto-Lita mounted to the quick release collar from the original. 

Greg,

 

Beautiful Setup. I was thinking of a Mota-Lita wheel for my in progress 420. Was wondering if it mounted to the mono quick release hub or needed an adapter. Also seems a bit larger diameter than the momo. Do you have lowered floors? Any clearance issue with your legs.

Hi, thank you.

I ordered the Steering wheel from Moto-lita. It's 13".  It is a bit larger than the original. Once in the seat it's very comfortable. A horn plate over the center nut. The Caterham badge is just a hood badge that I glued to the horn plate. No issues with leg room and I almost never use the quick release. 

Speaking of that, I had the guys at Hillbank-Superformace mount the new wheel to the quick release collar while they had the car.

Greg,

 

That’s great. Thanks for the photos. Looks like a mark v thick rimmed 13” with the dark wood

did you just do the plain billet center cap and add the badge to that?

I spec”d the qr momo. I would think their is a world where I could attach this to a qr boss and just swap between them with the quick release. 
 

I am still likely a year away from actually getting my hands on my car. So trying to fill the hours/days/months with over thinking everything.

Yes. That is exactly what mine is.
