I had problems and kept breaking return springs, I found I could get usable spring material from a local surplus store. Then I broke a switch on the shift paddle and bought a new S1, they are kinda inexpensive. Then I broke another couple springs and switches and used the old wheel for donor parts. There is a great video on disassembly of the wheel on youtube and after the first time it doesn't take very long. Very few tools. Recently I donated my wheel and the parts wheel to a friend to get him to start racing and dug deep to get a G27 wheel. I drove for about 80,000 miles on my S1 wheels and it convinced me that I was loving this sim and am likely to race for a very long time. I didn't find a source for parts tho
I bet if you have the resources to make paddles there might be a market for upgrade replacement parts. There are upgrade pedal parts and a few other things for other wheels, wanna start a business?

I have a spare for parts yet I am reluctant to give it away. perhaps a modeling solution will work. models are built out of plastic, custom model builders build anything they want to imagine.
cheap solution= auto body bondo, sandable and drillable. rebuild what you broke.

Mold in latex and cast fiber/plastic copies? My dad makes reproduction horn/steering wheel centers for '41 Cadillac collectors with this process. These aren't strong because of the material but anything could be used. The original SRW parts aren't very strong. Would like to see a metal replacement part tho.
