As the temperatures outside flicker with 60+ degree days, it still averages in the 20-30s, making working out in the garage unsatisfying.
Anywho, I finally decided to mount the rewrapped steering wheel and reinstall the Koshi steering column trim pieces.
On a side note, I did take some pictures of the airbag removal and latch mechanism on the steering wheel for you all and will do a DIY write up in the near future. It is a seemingly blind procedure as you will have to know what to unlatch to remove the airbag. Pretty standard latch mechanism but you have to remove the steering column shroud as well as turn the wheel 90 degrees to access the holes behind the steering wheel to get to the airbag clips. Having a proper airbag removal tool is recommended as there is not much space to work with a screwdriver and the display bezel in the way.
Sorry for the suboptimal photos, I have the battery removed for another project so I couldn't readily pull the car out of the garage to get better lighting.
Just to recap, the rewrap is black Alcantara with perforated Napa leather thumb inserts and bottom ledge with dark red stitching. According to Jacek@Redline Goods, removing the 4C OEM wrap was the worst he has ever dealt with, making stateside removal and installation of a rewrap impossible. You will need to send your steering wheel to Poland.
Also, you can see the results of my hydrodipped Centerline paddle extensions with matte clear coat finish. Subtle touch but nicely done.
