    Steering wheel refurb

    Hi All,

    I'm on to my steering wheel now, and I know several people have posted about how they did there. From memory the process is sanding and filing the cracks out, fill the cracks and paint.

    I tried searching for previous postings, but failed, so can someone point me to any posts about this, failing that, what's the recommended filler and paint to use ??

    Thanks
    John

    I don't know how to link to a particular post but my take on it is #264 on my build thread.

    I've still got plenty of that Norris flexible filler that I used, you're welcome to it. You know where I live...

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for your offer of the filler, I might take you up on that yet.

    I am curious about your choice of an epoxy filler over a plastic filler, is the epoxy more compatible / like the original steering wheel material ? I was "widening" the cracks with a dremel to allow more filler to go in, and I noticed the original steering wheel material is not very hard, so I would have thought an epoxy filler would actually be harder than the original, did you find that ?

    Also, after filling/sanding, what prep/paint did you do / use ?

    Thanks
    John

    I dug out and filled the cracks on mine with liquid metal filler (all I had) wet and dried the whole wheel, etch primed it, then two coats of 2 pac black paint that had been in the cupboard for years


    Well worth the effort
