What do you guys think?
« on: July 20, 2009, 07:05:57 PM »
This is the steering wheel that came with the car when i bought it. If anybody wants this steering wheel shoot me a pm with an offer.

I just bought this steering for about $150 and it was in decent condition but had a lot of little cracks along the grip


After i refinished it took about 2 hours.

i started off by scrubbing the grip with proform silicone wax and grease remover drying it instantly afterwards, then i scuffed really good with brown scotchbrite which took out a lot of the little cracks and from there i sprayed about 6 or 7 light coats of sem landeau black (per side). after that i taped off the grip (once dry) and took a palm sander to the middle with a really fine grit sandpaper. Then i sprayed it with sem landeau black again (about 3 coats)

As for the steering wheel its still not removed as i am waiting to borrow my buddys steering wheel puller .I dont think you can change that you might be able to strip it and paint it a different colour of buy a new center cap for it. Comes out super easy. I have no clue if the horn contacts work on it or not, they might work but i dont even have a horn wired up as it is. as for asking price just shoot me an offer
