Remove screws from the Wii steering wheel and mark a general area that will allow the mobile phone mount to securely be placed within the steering wheel. Both halves should be identical after using the dremel to cut the plastic

Use the dremel tool to cut the plastic of the Wii steering wheel and be sure to cut a hole the entire way through for the mounting screw. This can take anywhere from 5-20 minutes depending how accurately you measured for the phone mount or how smooth you want the plastic. (I got it pretty close but because I was wrapping it with electrical tape it did not need to be perfectly smooth)

Step 5: Finishing Touches
