For this project I will use a Demolition Derby steering wheel that I eBay'ed and connect it to an Opti-Pac+.

These are pictures prior to the disassembly.  These steering wheels were in rough shape when I got them. The encoder wheels were bent, they were a little rusty, pretty dirty, etc...  I chose the worst one for my project, just to see if I could bring it back from the dead.

Here I have removed the wheel from the control panel.  I also straightened out the encoder wheel with a pair of pliers.  It looks pretty good now.
