Default steering wheel help needed

Hi All, I have fitted a wooden steering wheel to my Z3 cobra, I have managed to wire the horn but was wondering how to go about fixing the wires so they don't get all tangled up when turning the steering wheel and possibly pulled out of the connector. Any ideas on what can be done will be very gratefully received.

You need to use the clock spring or slip ring that is screwed to the bottom of the steering wheel.
I bought a cheap boss kit that wouldn't take the clock spring so have to buy another.
Eric bought one that takes the clock spring

Yep OMP is the one. Slip ring bolts straight on and the brown wire is horn live

I mounted my horn button on the steering column as the wooden wheel I used didn't have horn buttons and didn't face the problem.

Not sure if that helps you but it might be considered for others.

I used a similar idea to WCA and bought a push button from Eurocarparts and then used blank switch cover on the dash. I cut out the horn picture from the centre and stuck it on the switch, not sure if it was needed but it has got through two MOT's.
