quick little update for those interested..
first off, i decided to redo the way that the wheel mounts.. instead of relying on the crappy clamp i removed the lap-base and screwed the thing straight to the wooden platform. (after hitting the base with some satin black paint)
pretty easy, after removing the lap piece, i used it as a template to drill spots for the mounting screws
next i built my little "trunk" area, which will hold all my other xbox controllers / accessories.. pretty roomy storage from what used to be dead space
it's got a "hood" too, but it's only on at the moment for a test-fit.. i still need to do some reshaping with my orbital sander before i shoot some paint on it
as you may have noticed from that pic, i'm gonna go with a white and black paint scheme on it.. i like the contrast, as well as how it matches the wheel. here's what the top looks like with the wheel attached
here's a bit of cable management underneath, as well as a shot of the bling bling.. being an installer, i have tons of this retarded kinda shit just laying around. way i figure it, why not pimp the forza rig? i've got a 12v inverter that i'm putting in the box under the seat to power it..
and here's what she looks like lit up
all in all, a pretty productive couple hours into the rig today.. it's starting to really shape up nicely..
