As you can no longer buy Kenlowe (they've stopped retail sales a while back for some reason) I'd go Revotec or Pacet tbh both decent makes, take a look at car builder solutions website

I think mine is a Revotec, it is slimmer than a Kenlowe of the same diametre and very efficient.

There's another update on my Scimitar on ViaRETRO - this time concerning choice of steering wheel.
Did I make the right choice?

Centre cap is too bling for me, but the wheel itself is lovely :D

Jim would only love it if the centre cap had a beard.
I think it looks great and as long as you're not blinded by reflections it's a good change. It won't creak either.

It looks great! It's worth noting that (whether done by you or a PO I don't know?) your car has been retro-fitted with chrome instrument bezels, which probably enhance the overall effect, also the (chrome?) mirror on top of the dash isn't original, but similarly blends in well. :)

HaHaHa... a bearded centre cap - now there's a novel idea! Might have to try that one day... :lol:

Geoff, I haven't found the reflections to be blinding in any way thus far. But as you say, on a positive the Moto Lita doesn't creak, and it generally just feels a lot more sturdy and substantial. Imo, a vast improvement over the stock steering wheel...

Roger, both the chrome bezels and the dash top mirror were fitted by a previous owner. I really like the chrome bezels to be honest, and as you say, they compliment the Moto Lita steering wheel too. To be honest, I probably wouldn't have installed the Lucas rear view mirror on top of the dash myself, but now that it's there, I also don't mind it in the slightest...
