Steering Wheel and Roof Rack

Iíve been way to busy lately to be enjoying my 912 but I finally found some time to wash it and take a few pics for Ryan Hoover (he made the rack).
The rack is awesome! On and off in less than a minute. Sturdy. Holds my board on at 60mph not so much as a rattle. Ryan makes and sells these. Heís located in Virginia and is on this forum. If youíre looking, I highly recommend.

Also, I put a new steering wheel on. I had a Momo Prototipo and it was too small (350mm), restricted view of gauges, and was a bit of a beast to steer with, and I have skinny tires (and Iím old and not as strong as I used to be). So I decided to give an OMP 380mm a go and wow, what a difference! Soooooo much easier to drive now, and only $170.
Just thought Iíd put these up for props to Ryan and easier steering.

That's a great look on that car, beautiful color and the light wood on the rack goes perfectly!

Matt, I wanna say $550 but it might be $575? Totally worth it. It greatly increases luggage capacity, not to mention makes trips to Lowe’s easier.

Thanks for the kind words

looks awesome.


Could I request that you turn your board around though. That's an improper way of carrying a surfboard on the roof.

It's an aerodynamic issue/reasons.

Looks great.
You point the surfboard backwards so if some moron rear ends you at a stop and destroys your beautiful car they can deal with the pointy end coming at there face as payback! lol

What Model Steering Wheel is that? and where did you source it from?
As I get older my 350mm MOMO gets harder to use.
I've been contemplating going back to a larger wheel.

That rack looks excellent! The day a roof-spanning targa version comes along that uses the old ski rack mount points, Iím all over one of these.
