Building a Custom Steering Wheel With CON2R

Like most of us Danny Valenzuela has been making upgrades to his 1969 Ford F-100 as time and money allows. Also like most of us Danny has tried to make his truck stand out from the rest, not something that is always easy to do.

When Danny went looking for a new steering wheel to top the replacement steering column all of the readily available choices seemed too familiar or too flamboyant; he wanted to do something different yet subtle and that led him to CON2R, the same folks who built his one-of-a-kind instrument cluster we featured earlier. A company that is diverse with a capital “D,” the products CON2R offers range from custom shift knobs to one-off chassis with trim elements, custom emblems, instruments, and steering wheels in-between.

CON2R offers fours series of steering wheels, all are 15 inches in diameter and have a three-bolt mounting pattern that fits readily available adapters, but that’s where the standardization ends—within each series is a long list of options to make a truly custom design.

Series One
Series One steering wheels are available in two-, three-, and four-spoke patterns with offsets of 1, 2, or 3 inches (offset is measured from the back face of the wheel frame to the centerline of the grips).

These wheels use injection molded ABS with finger grooves and solid color throughout. The grips are split, which is to say there is one on the front and one on the rear of the brushed stainless steel frame (in addition the grips on each side can be broken up into separate segments). Grips are available in 15 standard colors with custom colors, leather, and wood as options.

Along with all the other options there are 11 different choices for spoke trim.

Series Two
These wheels feature flat spokes that come in six different designs: straight two-spokes, inverted V two-spokes, T three-spokes, Y three-spokes, cross three-spokes, and butterfly three-spokes. In addition the spokes are available with three holes each or slots.

As with the Series One there are 15 standard colors for the front grip and 15 standard colors for the rear, and the grips may be divided into segments. The Series Two steering wheels come standard with a CON2R horn button.

CON2R’s Banjo series steering wheels are a contemporary interpretation of a classic design. These wheels feature a chrome-plated steel frame and can be ordered with all the grip options offered with the other series.
