Nice!! Is that a true carbon fiber bezel around the infotainment system? I was just telling my son I'd like to have that in CF over just adding the passenger dash panel. Or maybe have the largest dash piece that goes from one side to the other and wraps up and around the gauges and steering wheel in CF.

That steering wheel is really gorgeous. How do you like it? Someone posted that it cuts off the view of the top of the gauges with the flat top.

How did you get carbon fiber on the radio bezel?

How did you change the reflectors? I have them, but I am not sure how to install them.

Thanks.

Real carbon on the steering.
The rest is from ebay & it is on using double sided 3M.
I did install the reflectors the same time I changed exhaust so it was easier.

How do you like the CF stick on bezel? How does it look up close? Can you tell it’s a stick on? Any figment issues?

I guess the question still remains. Is the bezel carbon fiber or hydro dipped abs plastic that resembles carbon fiber. Thanks.

I'm the one that posted the wheel cuts off the top edge of the gauge cluster. It doesn't cut off any of the gauges. I have to duck a little to see the direction indicator and the turn signal blinkers.

I found I can minimize much of the cuff-off by pulling the wheel away from the dash using the telescope function.

Looks great man!
How does the steering wheel feel in hand? Does it feel much thicker than stock?
I'm assuming the diameter is smaller than stock as well?

I can tell you from personal experience it is and feels thicker than stock. As far as diameter, I don't think there's a huge difference. The core is a 6 gen Camaro steering wheel from a 1LT.

I've had the Wildhammer wheel on for just about 2 months. It not only looks spectacular but it just feels good to hold. It really should be the stock wheel that comes with the ZL1 in my opinion.

Here's a side by side photo I took comparing the OEM and Wildhammer wheels. Hopefully it will give you a better feel for the differences.

Awesome! Thank you for your insight. I guess the flat top makes it look a little smaller in diameter. It being a little thicker may be worth the cost of entry for me. The good materials is a nice bonus.
Will definitely consider buying this wheel.

It look ok for me , some of the other parts are hard to stick on it needs to be addressed either by changing the sticker at the back.
