Re: STOCK 67-72 Steering Wheels

Heres the only shot of my 70 gmc wheel that I have. Truck is hugger orange with light gold interior. I know its hard to see but any determinations on the color? Is it sandalwood or saddle? No horn button with it though

Re: STOCK 67-72 Steering Wheels

Anybody know where to get Fawn color spraypaint? The Paddock had it but they folded.
Need it to restore my '68 3-spoke wheel.

I'm not usually a fan of steering wheel covers, but yours look pretty nice and subtle. Where did you get it?

Re: STOCK 67-72 Steering Wheels

It has been a while --probably about 2007 -- but I am pretty sure it is a Wheelskin. Leather holds paint very well as I used rattle can acrylic enamel ---- body color---- after it was installed , wheel off the truck. Even with cruisin and car show use ---looks the same now as shown in the pic that was taken lately for this thread.

Re: STOCK 67-72 Steering Wheels

67 GMC custom the top of the dash, column and wheel are a grayish blue color and are original. No cracks in the wheel anywhere but pretty sure the truck never sat outside the dash pad is original and perfect.

It took a bit of work, but now it looks like new.

Re: STOCK 67-72 Steering Wheels

My sandalwood wheel off my 72 Blazer with sandalwood and parchment interior. Swapped it out in favor of a smaller diameter vintage "The 500" chrome spoke wheel with vinyl foam grip. Keep this one stashed away.

Re: STOCK 67-72 Steering Wheels

i'm really kind of frustrated with this.. I've never tried to restore a wheel before, and I absolutely HATE the Grant that was on there. (Ironically, it popped off the other day). The inventory of 17" aftermarkets (aside from repops) is nearly nil. So are custom wheels (17")
I want the 17" because for now, I have Armstrong steering. Plus, I want some semblance of a classic look.
Any thoughts or suggestions?
