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.

Seems like it was forced or tweaked to get in there.  You may need to pop the fender off or loosen it.
Body man I am not. I understand where all the fender bolts are, which bolts will needs to be loosened? I'm assuming all wil have to be because of the nature of pressure points on metal. I worry that the fender will not line up. Should I take measurements between bolts or mark them first?

I just bought and received one 15x8 Keystone Snowflake wheel at RockAuto.com, with as cast -finishing. The price was $106. Unfortunately the price about doubled with delivery to Europe. But still I am pleased, as for years I was looking for a reasonably priced whole set of four 15x8 wheels, or just a single wheel to complement my set of three. Now I can swap my 15x7's to wider ones. At the moment, the 15x8's seem to be out of stock at RockAuto, but there is still at least one 15x7 wheel for $131.


Is that the correct color for argent gray I though they should  be a darker grey...



Look at he nOS one I have in the nOS wars with Reaper, it has factory pain on it.
