Thumbs up! Steering Wheel.....

I have been watching ebay for Duntov steering wheels for a few years now and finally got one.

I will post up a photo after the installation.

Update.....

We were really happy to see the condition of it out of the box, it was rather filthy like it had been in a machine shop or such, sitting and collecting dust and grime in the air.

I mounted it to a board and used my orbital and some cleaner and wax.....then some leather conditioner for the wrap.
It looks like brand new to us, kinda hard to get a good example photo of chrome.

The start as it came from the box...i cleaned it with soap and water.


A little into it, it was looking great as it came cleaner....


Done, it is smooth as glass except for one small flaw that I believe will be covered by the center cap.

Actually the St Clair River just south of the Bluewater Bridge.

And good deal on the Duntov wheel.

About a decade ago I got a repro of that same wheel from Mid America. It did not have a signature, but it is the same thick wrap four spoke design as the Duntov.

I think they were a little north of $100 and you could get the leather in different colors and the metal wheel could be painted, polished, or brushed. It was one of the best purchases at the time because a good steering wheel makes the whole interior.

Not a bad place to start...

I think I gave about $100 for mine on Ebay and the leather was like new. I spent a few hours on the metal polishing it up though. Very good quality wheels if anybody is considering them.
