Post by 34 cowley » Thu Mar 02, 2006 8:56 am

Does anyone know if the old bakelite coverings on steering wheels can still be done, if so who does them?

Bakerlite stearing wheel covering

Post by Bob Ballantyne » Thu Mar 02, 2006 5:51 pm

In the Australian magazine - Restored Cars - there is an advertisement for the restoration of steering wheels is a similar process offered in colours with a name like pearl coat. I think this process which is an overlay of plastic might be available in straight gloss black.
The restored magazine publishers' ph no in Austrailia is 0061 3 5476 2212 or fax 0061 3 5476 2592. If you are still having problems contacting them please let me know and I will try to find out more for you. Bob.
