Great idea. Few issues i see is all the sparks from cutting wheel need sometime to keep them from flying around. Going to remove black plastic around steering column today n see what kind of room I have to work n can i get my small grinder in place.If you have a good cutting wheel, why not cut off excess plastic around the metal insert which has splines, then carefully cut the insert nearly thru, then hammer a wedge/screwdriver in the slot and it should crack off.
PS: the metal insert is about 1/2 in thick, and simple molded into the steering wheel.
I am awaiting wokka stock wheel to cut it open n see exactly what I am dealing with once all plastics is removed. So frustrating. Will try again after lunch. If i cant get it i will plsce nut hand tight on shaft n bring it over to my mechanic. See what his idea is.
Was thinking some how secure come along cable around wheel n atrsch other end to ss roll bar n the crank n crank. My luck i will bend rollbar
