Restoring the S1 Lotus Esprit Steering Wheel

As my S1 Esprit originally had a brown marcasite interior, the steering wheel itself was wrapped in a brown material. I had the steering wheel re-covered in black leather to match originality (at least from the perspective of the S1 Esprits with green/tartan/orange). I am still hunting for the foam “Lotus” center button, but hopefully I’ll have some luck finding a replacement or I’ll simply fabricate it from the old one.
