Thanks bud, Pat and Steve at THUNDER have been great to work with, every detail they go over with you, down to the type of hardware changes to how you want your screws on your rubrail(cross or x pattern). the new things they are doing this year is amazing, they have surprised me with so much neat chit that I didnt even know I was getting, and is much nicer than I have imagined, I hopefully will see you guys at a bunch of poker runs this year, it will be nice to match faces with boats, lifes too short so have some fun!!!!!!

525-I once had a guy tell me that the wheel would get hot. But can't ever recall ever touching a stainless grab handle or rail that was hot. Can you? I would have to assume that the wheel would be the same as the air temp and that if it was really, really hot out (so that everything was hot to the touch) that the wheel could be too hot to hold onto. So I guess that you could wrap it with a product that wouldn't conduct the heat as well as the bare aluminum. I would think the purple wrap would do the trick-just don't go too dark. Otherwise it'll be too hot!

Cord,

I agree, I've never grabbed a hot rail either. I can't decide but I know I love that wheel!!

Why not just run it for a while and then if it prooves to be too hot, send it back for a wrapping. They sound like a pretty good place and I'm sure that they would be understanding.

BTW-I discovered that site when I was searching for a wheel. There were so many that were so beautiful, that I still havn't picked one!

Cord,

That sounds like a great idea!! The selection they have is amazing. My only concern is how it will adapt to where my old wheel was. What do you think??
