I am trying to figure out what hub I would need for an 81 242? All the hub adapters I have found seem to be for 82 and later is this true?

Oddly enough, it seems to have been painted black over chrome, that is also flaking. There are also 2 cracks in the back of the wheel i want to clean out, glue and clamp... it would be a higher priority if my 240 wasn't 100 miles away, and I wasn't trying to get my rabbit body/engine bay redone before the monsoons start

Previous Owner likely painted the chrome /polished aluminum, *black* to reduce glare from sunshine while driving......that's my best guess.......

OEM steering wheel on my 91' 245, the only year that came 14" (89') with the air bag look, my wife covered it with a stitched cover from Ebay for $5.99. A nice solution for a "thinned" upper grip and very comfortable to drive with....

Correct, it's not SRS and it came only in 1989 for 240's. My 91' 245 came with the big SRS steering wheel but the bag cracked and so this was the replacement at 14"d .

If it's a nardi, it'll be engraved w/ the nardi signature. If it doesn't have it, it's not a nardi.
