update on the floors, got the garage rewired and got a good start on replacing a few things, first...drivers side was the lesser of the two evils on this so I started with that by replacing that old rusty swiss cheese floor with a nice solid patch from classic industries, after cutting the old sheet metal the crossmember was in good shape and cleaned up well, after some prep work on the existing floor and new patch it was time to weld and just like that, druvers side was solid again, some clean up on the welds and a good cleanup on the entire drivers side floor I went ahead and gave it a nice coat of POR15, I'm happy with how it turned out, now onto the passenger side. if anyone wants more pictures or has any questions feel free to ask I'm only posting the before and after pictures here unless someone wants more

I never heard anyone that does the spokes. Wrapping in leather, yes, spokes no. Find another wheel, better yet, leave your interior alone on a low mile car.

Yes I mean the brushed spokes.  My problem is that this is a low mileage 78 and the steering wheel is perfect otherwise.  I am just hoping to find someone that can refinish the spokes and recoat so that it looks like original.  When I started that is what I was promised.  Just trying to fix my mistake of choosing this guy.

Nothing in the GM 76-81 parts manual. I believe it's probably a 7/16" bolt and locknut.

Firstly, graining of the spokes. They are blackened aluminium, do you mean the brushed look? Secondly, if it's that bad I'd start over, sounds like it would cost more than replacement anyway.

Restoration / 1978 Trans Am Steering Wheel Restoration
« Last post by makamer on March 23, 2017, 04:15:23 PM »
A couple years back I sent my steering wheel to be refinished by a "reputable" restorer that restores dashes.  He sanded the spokes, thereby removing the graining, and painted them black.  It was supposed to be a coating similar to the black anodizing that would show the grain in the spokes.  I was really upset because this is a low mileage car and I just had my perfect wheel messed up.  I have lived with it but now am on the search again as to who could fix the graining on the spokes and coat it properly. 

Does anyone have anyone they can recommend?

Thanks!

I just checked my 1980 assembly guide and all I could find were the factory part numbers (no sizes)

Bolt  #9436801
Nut #9422299

Maybe someone else has a parts directory for 1980-81 F bodies.
