Grant Horn Button Assemblies don't make sense

I have a Grant steering wheel mounted to an old style GM column with tilt. The steering wheel is fastened to the adapter with 5 allen head screws that pass thru a solid billet center. I want to replace the solid center with a horn button center. So I purchased a two piece billet center made by Grant and their standard adapter kit thinking they would combine and give me a horn button. Turns out they are not compatible. I have tried my best to correspond with Grant to resolve the problem without success. So now I'm turning to you guys for some advice.
Has anyone used the polished aluminum two piece center and had it work? Another thing, if I want to install standard car horns, do I need a horn relay? How is the wiring set up? Is there a wire connection on the steering column that I need to connect to?
Thanks for any help and advice.

Post a pic of your wheel. I thought all Grants are set up for horns as a horn is standard on all cars. I have put on many Grant wheels and the adapter has the 5 allen head screws but you still have a horn button in the middle under the Grant insignia. Sounds like you don't have the right components or the right adapter. Their standard installation kit comes with the horn button and the necessary mounting items Every wheel Grant shows has a horn button. Check out Grants website andgive us a list of what components and wheel you have. That way some of the other members can look also and and maybe together figure what the problem is.

When you say "polished aluminiun two piece center" do you mean, see attachment ?
This comes with longer allen head screws and just bolts on the wheel over the original horn button. The push center being taped to the horn button with double sided tape.
The one shown in the attachment looks aweful installed, I got me a black one without logo.

malc, I just read your post. The part you show (see attachment) is exactly what I have. My problem is that I don't have the horn button. I have what Kevin45 shows in his post. That package does not include the button. That is what I guess I'm missing.
