Sierra steering column shroud

I am using a mk1 steering column which has the flat topped steering wheel.

I will have to get a shroud as I only have the small top piece - I was wondering:-
- does the shroud look OK with a decent steering wheel as I can not find a picture that shows the shroud clearly - does anyone have a photo?
- any idea what the cost is new?

Thanks Greg

I made one from fibreglass. It's such a good fit, it's not actually screwed on
