Have a Grant GT steering wheel and happy with it EXCEPT it has the Grant logo inset on horn button and would like to switch out to a Fiero logo either using original button or substitute button. Anyone done this or have ideas for separating Grant button without destroying it?

Rodney Dickman sells some epoxy covered Fiero stickers that I think might fit. I used them to dress up some after market center caps on my wheels and many people think they are original. I don't know if he lists them on his site so you might need to email him if you don't see them.

This is from another thread. you can PM Alex to get an idea but he used the Grant wheel with the stock hub and used the stock horn button on the Grant wheel:

You can see mine below (done by a good friend for me :-D ). Also Grant sells a 1" adapter that is (IMHO) the only way to go for a Grant in a Fiero. Otherwise the 3" adapter pushes it too far forward.

Also Tony Kania on here did this with his Grant wheel. I believe he took the stock Fiero logo, trimmed it down and replaced the stock "Grant" logo:

My horn button seems to be size as shown on Kania's wheel and not the type shown on Alex's. Wondering where or how they came up with that Fiero insert? I want something that's embeded in button and not just pasted on.

Thanks for the feedback.

As some of you may know, Dogcreek is getting a LS4 transplanted into his ride. http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum1/HTML/080357.html While helping him and FieroKing work on his car a few weeks ago, I asked Dogcreek what his plans were with his old Grant steering wheel? He says to me, "It's yours!" So, after saying no several times, but meaning yes everytime, I take posession of this...



He had painted over the Grant emblem in the center. (Can't say that I blame him. ) I got to looking at the GT emblem in our stocker GT wheels, and decided to try out my artistic side. ...



I used the center button of the Grant emblem as the beginning to my end. The GT emblem pops right out of the horn button on the stock wheel. I traced the shape of the GT emblem, then layed it over the Grant button. With an Exacto blade, I outlined the shape of the stock emblem onto the button. Then I carved out the design to fit the stock emblem. This is what I came up with...





After a little semi-flat paint...



The surrounding plastic was painted also. In the last pic, it looks as if there is almost texture in the paint. Well, there is. I touched the semi wet paint! But, not all is lost. The rest of that story is best left to another thread.

Completed...





Once again, thanks Dogcreek! The steering wheel feels a lot better suited to my driving habits.

Thanks for the thread "IMSA". Of course mine is not a GT but it's something to think about if I can find appropriate sized Fiero badge.
