Ok... @Nismo got me do this and got me excited building a own wheel.
Currently i am using Fantecs Porsche 918 rsr and i like many features on it like the leather, build quality ,feel of buttons and the funky switch.

In my mind its easy to build the wheel and mostly i just have it all in there how its gonna be looking. If i was good in digital sketching i could give you a preview but yeah if iam gonna do that i prob spend more hours learning to draw a digital wheel then building one.

So what are the parts i have ordered and waiting for.

The wheel from 3DRAP GT3FF comes with black grips real carbon plate and golden/yellow stitches ( hopefully matching in color with the gold podium)

The quick release and shifters:

Buttons ( which i hope i like them and also how they feel its a gamble but i will see if its any good Aliexpress stuff XD )

Now when it comes to the podium hub i had to do some research how that thing connects buttons and stuff. In the hub there are JST connectors and i had to do some research what types there are and what is used.

Left and right are for the Podium Shifters so i dont have to look into those.
Down left and right are for the buttons you can buy from fanatec but iam gonna use these for my buttons i ordered. As far my knowledge goes they look like 4pin JST SH 1.0mm connectors and the middle white one is a 6 pin JST ZH 1.5mm.
Later i have to figure out what is the ground on those 4 pin connectors to hook up the buttons correctly.

The middle connector i am gonna try and use the 5v output that should be on it according some guys i talked to. What i am gonna try is add a
Adafruit Bleutooth controller powered on that 5v so i can add more buttons like rotary switches and hopefully a working funky switch all wireless (i hate cables)

For now i am waiting for many parts except the Podium hub and shifters they are waiting to be mounted.

I will keep things updated when i am gonna build and have all the parts

This looks really cool @Jeff[NL] loving these homemade wheels.

What board is that? Looks very similar to a project I'm working on at the moment for LORA networking!

*edit, just noticed it's a bluetooth board. Good luck with it. I'm in the sensor industry :)

It is a Adafruit Feather nRF52 Bluefruit module. Seems like a very popular ez to use controller. I have had a Arduino uno board somewhere that was my first little project made a controller for 2 little vibe motors for on my csl elite for abs and lock ups.

So i have been busy last week and this is it at the moment. Did some laps with it incl some races and i must say it feels really good. Not gonna stay with the Fanatec logo altho i think it doesnt look bad.
