I have a 3d printer so I was able to print this and then I coated it in resin to give it strength and a smooth finish. The actual horn button is from an old grant wheel and a emblem from a Delux gas cap I believe.

    Exactly what part did you print with a 3-D printer?

    I printed the black housing that the horn mech is mounted in. I made it so the horn mech clips right. I went through about 3 version till I landed on this one.

    I saw the standard horn buttons that go on the 3 bolt steering wheels and just wasn’t to fond of them because the one I had made a very loud clanking noise. This way it’s very tight and doesn’t make metallic noises.
