thinking trade any one?

I have a nice looking wood grain all intacked even though the rimblows are different I might be willing to trade-for ROCKER MOULDINGS- the XR-7 crest is mint no cracks any where on the wheel or the soft center which is black i have been looking at alot of other wheels.A new real wood grain is still alot cheaper than a e-bay rimbow. any takers Dan

RIM BLOW STEERING WHEELS

Ford created this unique horn system as a selling and safety feature and it was another "bright idea" from FORD. I really like it and most people who are unfamiliar to the Cougar and the rim blow are really interested and think it is a cool option. I will always keep my rim blows intact and working and am very glad to see that someone is making a good reproduction for them. I remember paying $200 for my last NOS rim blow switch.

Rim Blow switches

Until somebody makes a resonable priced rim blow switch, here is how I solved a bad switch. I took apart the three spoke wheel and and wood grain plastic. Next I removed the XR-7 emblem in the center and atached it to a horn button purchased from a local parts store. I had to cut of the mounting tabs, but it still fit underneath the woodgrain plastic. Now I have a XR-7 horn button, and I can still replace all parts to original condition when I want to.

I must have one, it is way better than the rim blow i have now.
I once fixed my mustang by mounting the horn button on the floor like a dead pedal / horn. hands free honkin
