He restored my '68 Camaro SS steering wheel last summer. Took about 4 weeks. Looks brand new. Great job.

Does he paint or just polish the standard 69 wheels when he restores them?

Here are a couple of before and after pics of my steering wheel that Gary restored. It had hairline cracks typically found on these steering wheels. Gary completely repaired them, painted and polished the entire wheel. I don't have a close up pic of the repaired cracks but they're completely gone. If anyone wants a close up pic just let me know.

Not sure about the '69 wheel but I suspect it would be no different than the process he used on my '68 wheel. That is, it is painted and polished.

thanks for posting the pics. my wheel has more than a hairline crack, probably a good 1/16" right at the bottom but is the only crack in the wheel. I will try to post a pic but new at posting pics and have a hard time with size limits. thanks again for posting the pics Bob.
