Steering wheel

Hello everyone,

I want to thank the people who have given me good advice and information in the past. Hopefully I will have somehting to contribute in the future. However, I want to tap this great pool of wisdom again and ask if you know how to restore a steering wheel. Is there a special paint, or a shop that will bake the original coating on? thanks for your response.

SG

I repaired and painted my steering wheel about 6 years ago but it could use another cleanup and a fresh coat of paint. I used a rattle can to paint it (white) but it didn't hold up well. Next time I'll do more research and use some heavy duty automotive paint.


Here's a good link with some basic repair information http://fedora.net/falconaut/tech/steering_wheel.html

Por 15 makes a steering wheel repair kit..

I'm not sure if it includes paint.. its more for fixing cracks..

on plastics I would look for a two stage paint.. first stage and adhesion promoter and the second stage the paint.. I would then find something to seal the paint..

Kenny, I would stop eating that "Good Morning Sandwich" from Dick's Drive-in every day on your way to work. That grease is murder on the new paint.

I had to dig out the CD from my stash just to listen to it again.
When I saw this post, I just started rolling on the floor laughing. I cranked it on my home stereo last night after dinner and my wife and son thought I had lost it (well atlest my wife thought i was crazy, my 3yr old loved it).
Thanks for the memories.....
