Scratchbuilt, around 20 parts. Mostly aluminum. I broached the splines into the receiver so they match the splines on the shaft. The red button on the right is for the nitrous. Even made a plastic wire guide to keep the switch wires from dangling loose. (Note the stitching on the faux leather grip.) The horn button has a cloisonne Seven logo in it... - Mark

Really exceptional work Mark. How did you simulate the stitching on the wheel?

Exceptional part!

What's the process for putting the splines inside that tiny hole?

Well thank you everyone, here's some answers...
Being a decal artist (Scale-Master Decals), I made decals for the stitching, I'm not crazy enough to stitch that by hand, (or am I?).
The process for making the female splines is called Broaching, basically mashing the design into the part, similar to how some sockets are made.
The big ruler is made by setting my Shrink Ray Gun on reverse, (1200%) and just zapping my 6 inch machinist scale. (I can shrink it back down for storage.)
And as you can see in this photo, it's 6 feet long...

Wasn't me/us. I scale stuff down. The "big ruler" in the above post is a Photoshop gag made by Steve Boutte. It is me and my ruler, but it's not a "real" picture... - Mark

Well, those decals are very very convincing for stitching.
