Lightning McQueen Steering Rod Extension

Has anyone come up with any options for extending the Lightning McQueen Steering Rod, other than 1. welding or 2. Tap-and-die extensions?

Looking to add a non-standard and cooler-looking steering wheel since inside of current one is wearing out where it links with metal steering rod 'wings'.

After much measuring and trial and error, figured out how to mount steering wheel from PS4 using a section of a plastic cylinder I picked up at the local Grainger store. If anyone is interested in more details of how to replicate, let me know.

Thank you very much for the feedback!

My son loves it. Of course his next question was, do any of the buttons work?

I picked up a PS3 and PS4 version from Goodwill for just $4-6 each, which is significantly cheaper than their original cost! The PS4 version seemed better suited for this adaptation.
