Esprit V8/S4 Steering Wheel Boss

Posting out of desperation here. I finally completed a lengthy mechanical restoration of my 98 Esprit, only to have the steering wheel boss crack in to a thousand bits (long story). What I have is a car that runs beautifully (and looks so as well) but zero steering wheel due to the broken boss. After researching things, I have discovered that this car has an Elise steering wheel (airbag not connected) attached to a customized adapter that bolts to the boss of an European model (which is what broke). The ugly eye-sore that they put on the US cars do not have this boss.

At this point, I am searching for guidance from anyone who can point me in the right direction for acquiring any boss that will fit the 16mm/28 spline steering column. I've check all over eBay, JAE, SJsportscars, PNM, dark corners of the internet, etc.. no luck yet.
