ok, so iv removed most of the rubber from the centre of the wheel. this has revealed 4 bolts, which i have then removed, seperating the wheel and "arms" from what i would call the "boss". i must check if i can bolt a momo or similar wheel onto the bolt configuation, or maybe an adaptor plate is in order, tho i will continure with my plan on making a chain one.

anyway on the "boss" is one circle with 76 printed in it, and another with 26. Is this the spline setting? how can i know if this is identical to my car?
