    I have a repro from Whitney, and it's been fine. A hundred bux tho, and I've had cheapy lace on covers on it since the wheel was installed....

    I have a repro and am happy with it. The horn button didn't seem to fit in the groove as well, like the groove wasn't cut deep or wide enough maybe. I don't notice it now, but did notice it when I made the switch.

    I purchased a repro from Vintage Jeep Parts for my 1956 and everything worked and looks good.
