HELP- early 911 wheel install on 74-89

Hi
so, if you take off the plastic housing off the back of the 914 steering wheel hub, you essentially have a 380 mm "RS" LIKE diameter wheel that fits your 65-73 model 911.

But to install the 914, or early 911 steering wheel, on a 74-89, you need some sort of adapter hub to take care of the extra space needed. the hub on the 914 (and early 911) wheels are
A) too short so if you managed to fasten it up, your fingers will slam into the dash pad

B) the horn actuation is different between 65-73 and 74-89.

Does someone make a new adapter hub that is long enough, and will fit to the early 914/922 wheel? we have custom made these in the past, but would like to find someone that produced a run of them (read- does not cost as much as making one at a time )

Thanks
Dave

Looks like the guys at Dzug took a crack at it but I think it's been showing "out of stock" for about 4 or 5 years. But there was at least one prototype by the looks of it.

On my SC Backdate MFI Hot Rod I took the not so easy way out and changed out my column for an early one.......

Thank you Johnny- Yeah , your car looks great with the back date of the dash. But changing the column is not an option with this client.
Dzug is no longer in business. Rebel Racing did purchase most of their inventory- I will try to ask Clint if he received such adapters

I don't think I would go quite so far down the backdate rabbit hole again, but once you start, it's hard to stop!!
