  • Horn Surrond and steering wheel recover.

    Is there source for the horn button surround for the '69 steering wheel? TRFand Moss don't show it. Rimmer shows it but supersedes it to the later model round one. Mine isn't damaged just old. Also how or what can the steering wheel be recovered with?

    I haven't seen a source for that version of the horn pad, I'd love to have an extra for my '69, it makes me a little nervous every time I have to remove it.

    I recovered my original wheel with a leather cover from Wheelskins - I don't think it's in their catalog, but they'll make any custom size to the measurements you give them. My cover was a hair loose, so I added a layer of padded bike handlebar tape on the inside and it fit great. I have a short writeup and photos here:

      Someone here took their wheel to a Tack Shop and had it done there. Can’t help you with the horn pad.

        If you cannot find a replacement, Eastwood offers a resurfacing spray that may work on the hub.

          Thanks for all the good suggestions. As far as the horn surround I've been soaking it in Armor All. It's not damaged just old so I think I'll just reuse it. The steering wheel cover is what presents problems. I'll check out the options. Being in horse country the Tack shop is and idea. Thanks.

            I've sent a few things to be recovered at Just Dashes, which despite the name can also restore and recover small interior pieces and door panels as well. Their reputation in doing so is sterling, as was the work I got back from them. A lot of serious muscle car restorers prefer to use them than to buy cheaper, inferior reproduction pieces.

            Bear in mind, however, that their work and reputation is not the only thing that is sterling. They are NOT cheap! Overall well worth it, but be prepared. I'd get an estimate from them before going ahead. They're quite reputable.
