Nice interior with the carbon fiber on the console-the steering wheel/horn addition makes it really super!

I have an adrenaline interior. Where did you get the wheel and how hard to install?

Bought from fellow forum member Kevin A. Jones he got from Caravaggio I believe. Install was easy 30-45 minutes but you need an impact driver to get the steering wheel bolt out. Good instructions in DIY stickies at top of C7 General section.

Red interior is the best looking color you can get in a Corvette.

The C7 steering wheel always looks MUCH better with the "Silver Fish" blacked out or replaced with a carbon part around the air bag.

I also like the Adrenaline Red interior, however I also like the silver fish and silver center console trim. I think it helps break up the other darker components, plus I've seen many aftermarket carbon fiber steering wheel fish inserts that don't match the weave of the OEM carbon fiber. I think the OP got it right.
