Steering Wheel Restoration 67 GTO

Recommended Posts

I decided it was time to restore the steering wheel on my 67 GTO. As typical the plastic had shrunk over the years and created a couple of gaps around the rim, one being about 3/8 of an inch and another one about 1/4 inch. Also at the intersection of each spoke and the rim, there were gaps where the outer edge trim screw goes through the spoke. I researched the various kits and found that I could source the components from various vendors cheaper. The kits seemed to have too much PC7 Epoxy so I purchased a smaller quantity at Lowes for $5.98 and had more than enough to fill all my gaps. I purchased the SEM Plastic Adhesion Promoter, SEM Landau Black Interior Spray, and Spray MAX 2K Glamour Clear Coat from Amazon. I was very pleased a how the SEM black spray flowed and covered the mismatching old finish and epoxy repairs. I highly recommend the Spray MAX clear coat and it also built up and maintained a high gloss finish. It dried to a hard finish in 24 hours and I was able to reinstall everything today. I attached a few before and after pictures, but it's hard to see the detail of the black surfaces.
