For those of you that have made your steering a quick release or snap off style can you show me some photos of your set up?

 

I plan to go this route to make it easier to get in and a little more graceful getting out lol

 

Am i right in saying i need a new corsa B boss as well as the quick release kit? Or will the B&G QR kit fit the existing one?

I have the B&G snap off adapter on mine, coupled with the elise shop spacer. It puts the wheel a little closer than I would like but I do tend to drive with the wheel close to me. Once I have access to a lathe I will take a bit off the adapter. Will grab a snap later on.

Cheers for the reply mate.

 

Does the B&G adapter fit the standard steering wheel boss then? Also, is a spacer needed or just preference?

I have the B+G one, no spacer. Works fine. Added bonus is not having a steering wheel on makes the car much harder to steel!

I will need to get  myself a B&G adapter then. Ive seen on a few pages that i need a corsa B fitment? Also, what steering wheel did you go for? I didnt realise there was such a choice

This one.  Bit thin though so am getting it recovered to thicken it slightly.

The steering column fitment is a four bolt pattern and the b&g is a standard six bolt pattern so you will need an adapter of some sort between the two.

That will convert you from the 4 to the six bolts.
