Cool Steering Wheel Swap

Im thinkin about swappin out my steering for the acura perforated leather ones like many of you already have, just a couple of questions.

Whats the best wheel to do this with? (Cl, TL, MDX)?

Can i put the honda air bag unit in the Acura wheel?

Some pics of completed swaps would be nice too.
Thanks

I emailed my local acura dealer and he said they had two and he would just GIVE me one. Whether its actually the nice S-type wheel is yet to be determined.

So the swap is complete and looks great. But my SRS light is on now. Does anyone happen to know a trick to getting it turned off. Or am i just stuck having to find some one with a code reader?

Anyone know what size bolts (thread size and approx length) are required to use w/ a steering wheel puller to remove the wheel on my 6th gen Accord? And how many (3 ?) And where on the wheel does one thread those bolts into in order to remove the wheel? I'd like to make sure that I have the proper bolts before removing the wheel (it's hard to drive to a store to get them without a steering wheel on the car !)

Thanks in advance !
