    Lets see, its pretty easy really. Youre gonna need a torx screw driver, the one that looks like a star. There are some little panels you gotta pop off the sides of the steering wheel. There will be a few screws back there to undo. Then the airbag should pop out and youll need to unplug that. Behind the airbag there are a few more screws then there is the center bolt that holds it to the column. I used a tire wrench to get that one on and off. There was an airbag plug/wire I had to get up under the dash to undo too if I remember. Make sure your wheel is straight if you can or youre gonna have to take the new wheel on and off a few times to get it right. The new one should go on pretty easily. You might want to use some loc-tite on the screws so they dont loosen up like mine cause that can be very uncool. Let me know if this helps, good luck! ;)

    i followed some diy from honda-tech. and the only part i regret is taking off the clockspring.. now, i don;t know if you can get by without taking it off, but if so, then leave it there, so your horn function will work.

    i have yet to hear of anyone successfully installing a quick release and keeping thier horn function.

    also. i bought my whole set up for $160 from h-t. advice. get the NRG shorty hub if you can. much better than the longer ones, doesnt shake or wobble as much, and feels like you have more controll. also, it's more roomie.

    I lost my horn when I put mine on, which I didnt know was gonna happen and sucked. My friend did some crazy shit and welded the plate piece from a stock wheel or something so he kept his horn. I would agree on a shorter hub for stability, plus the one I had stuck out kinda far and it wasnt comfortable. :(

    another thing, just for precaution. unplug the battery, i even went as far as taking out the fuse for the srs... didnt want the bag to blow up in my face, while trying to take it off.

    im not trying to be a dick but i wouldnt go cheep on a part of the car that has a vital role like steering the car. now you dont have to spend a shit load of money on the wheel but i would at least use a trusted name and some thing that has some sort of safety inpection like dot tüv sfi of somthing
    for example brands i would use
    nardi
    momo
    sparco
    just my $0.02

    i think the wheel looks fine, but you might think about taking the Spoon sticker off. if it had a H on it it might look alot better. try and find a round honda H sticker for it. its just so obvious that its not the right font and stuff. otherwise, looks nice in your car, and now you can pimp that shit! good job! :)
