Wow. They had better be for that amount of scratch.
No one said Raptor + Mods = Cheap
It should at least have a fleshlight mounted on it for that kind of money!
Just Velocity Blue as an option!
That'll work too. Do you know if they can do the facia in CF also?
Greetings & out apology for responding to the forum later than expected.

Like elsewhere cost is related to the quality of the materials used and the time it takes to design and build a superior product.

A few years ago, we thought about doing the wheel fascia in carbon.
Some customers send their steering wheel in for the mod, or we can provide a factory wheel on exchange, with deposit.
If we are providing a factory new steering wheel (factory leather) then we need to receive a Raptor wheel in showroom new condition.
If we are building a wheel that will get new leather, than the condition is less critical.
For various reasons, we have not pursued the making of the wheel fascia in CF. Balance is our aesthetic target when designing components for an interior. With the addition of the lower CF part of the Raptor steering wheel, we feel that the addition of a CF fascia, detracts from the visual aesthetics of the wheel. Certainly a personal interpretation.
We feel the appeal of matte finished carbon fiber has been underappreciated by many. Tesla offers only matte CF in their cars, and many performance bikes use the matte version.
There is an appealing industrial look and feel to carbon fiber in its 'raw' state.
Attached are examples of Camaro and Fusion steering wheels. The Tesla rear cup holder, also in matte, is one of the trim parts we made for Tesla.
The customsteeringwheels.com site needs to be updated.
If there is strong interest, we could work on some kind of group buy.
Thanks for all the information. Lots to digest. Will be in touch.
I was the first one that David @Rau Racing Wheels built a steering wheel for. The quality is excellent and better than the stock wheel. The cost is higher than the others online but worth it if you want a high quality US made product. You definitely will not be let down by their work.
Im interested if there is a group buy price!!
