you need to get the sparco hub, you lose the airbag and the stereo controls....the airbag light should turn off with the plug that the hub comes with

The lights will not turn off. You will need to block, or blackout the instrument gauge idiot light with a sharpie or use a black electrical tape from behind the instrument gauge idiot light to cover the illumination.

or get the resistance off of the old air bag using a DVOM and place in-line to keep the passenger side air bag. Just a thought if you like your passengers

The air bag comes out first by removing the two screws on the back of the steering wheel, I'll get some pics for you at work today.

the bolts on the side are a 30 torx:

This is the back side:

If you can see that little orange/red wire in the upper corner there, that's the horn and will need to be cut and tapped in the new horn button

This is below the clockspring, I dont have a pic of the clockspring but be gentle with it. After you take the nut off the wheel you can grab the steering wheel and rock it back and forth to remove it or use a puller:

I just got my sparco hub p/n 01502108CA.
it only came with this heavy hub, a rubber booth, 6 allen screws, and a thin round metal with lots of holes. anything else i'm missing?

any one knows the value of the resistor to plug in to fool the SRS, I know i'll be out of driver's air bag, but still want the passenger side air bag.

..
thanks,
sid
