    That's my thing too, I want it to look as least aftermarket as possible, the momo wheels have momo engraved in the spokes...i'm glad the grant doesn't

    Look at the spokes on the wheel, it even has a edge that looks similar to the shifter too.

    I have a camaro script horn button coming in...def gonna paint the horn button black

    The wheel and the shifter work really well together. It's those little details and extra effort that will make a car one-of-a-kind.

    Mine has grant on the lower spoke and Camaro on the horn button. The steering wheel is probably 8 years old now.

    yep, some Grant wheels have it and some don't. It's pretty low-key lettering at least.

    Can't win for lose, Steering wheel came in and the box looked like ti was Ace Ventura'd. But the seller just throw it in a large box with very little packing so they need to accept some blame for this too.

    Wheel looked pretty rough when I opened it, I filed a claim with amazon's third party seller to get my money back.

    Should have ordered it from summit or jegs instead of trying to save $20.

    But that didn't stop me from mocking it up before I send it back to at least see what it's gonna look like. I'm digging the look
