Steering wheel restore success
« on: April 17, 2019, 01:31:03 PM »
Iíve been slowly working on my trucks interior. My father-n-law has a truck carcass around a 1976 or so that has been sitting on his mountain rotting since the mid-80s. I got the steering wheel out of it and decided to restore it. I washed it in dawn and mean green then let it soak in both overnight.

Before:







After washing/soaking, sanding, and cleaning with TSP:





After painting with rustoleum american accents paint+primer semi-gloss black base and also clear coat. Used what i had laying around for the emblem which was Miracal metallic decorative finish and then the rustoleum clear coat. I probably should of used an adhesion promoter on the wheel and emblem, but didnít. We will see how it holds up. I might eventually paint the inside of the chevy emblem yellow, but not sure the best way to do it.
