Re: Elite Steering Wheel Options

They do dipping........
Where you float a transfer on water and then put the item to be covered through the wrap stuff to coat it.........
I think that'd works for the centre panel in wood effect......
And yes I'd thought about re trimming the wheel itsself

Re: Oulton Park Gold Cup 2020

nope.......
Lotus cars of all ages are allowed.......
we are one of the few all encompassing marques where age isn't relevant....as the marque is deemed 'of special interest'........
hope this helps
cheers
