A few Pics From Serial #21005

We are really fortunate to have such helpful resources available on our forum. I likewise used the instructions to re-do my steering wheel. You did a great job. Keep with the restoration.

Hi back a while ago - I actually had one similar. Then I saw where it was made and recalling all the history of people that have held this steering wheel in our family, the sentimental side of me kicked in and I decided to repair it. Perhaps if like this one that was replaced in the '70's and Made in the USA, I'd have bought one. In the end it was a fun repair and pretty easy.

The great thing about this type of work, we're all free to make our own choices. Thanks for sharing your photo

Regards to all, Ken
