I need to give my interior a deep cleaning in order for it to match the wheel. However, I love how it matches my interior. The stitching is pretty spot on to the grey of the interior and the black of the leather goes with everything else. 20210426_163156 by Jose, on Flickr
However, the Lexus wheel is the one that really has me excited. It's the same steering wheel as the Supra one, save for the Lexus emblem and steering wheel buttons! I'm going to use these to control the volume and change tracks on my radio. As you can see, the center section is interchangeable. 20210505_170552 by Jose, on Flickr
I finally managed to pull an aluminum 8.8 diff cover at the junkyard. Man what a pain that was. It took three visits to the junkyard to finally bring every tool I needed to finally remove this thing. So glad this rear end is the only Ford product I will be dealing with for a while. Anyhow, here is the cover in all its filthy glory 20210504_103623 by Jose, on Flickr
Of course, there was no way I was going to use that thing in such filthy condition, so I dumped it in a storage tote and added a mixture of Purple Power Degreaser and water 20210504_154702 by Jose, on Flickr
After letting it soak for a few hours, I went in with a large bristle brush and an old toothbrush for the small crevices 20210506_151609 by Jose, on Flickr
I changed out the degreaser/water mix and then left it overnight. I took it out the next day and finished removing all the crud from the nooks and crannies. This is the final piece once dry 20210507_084132 by Jose, on Flickr
Now, I just need to cut the ears off it and give it a good paint job.
