" Steering Wheels "

Recommended Posts

Barry,

I stubbled onto a web-site about the steering wheel. The company is J. B. Donaldson Co. out of Pheonix, Arizona. Just wondered if anyone has called them or has done business with them before? The phone # is 602-278-4505. They restore old vehicle steering wheels.

Mike,

If you look in Hemming's Motor News, there are usually

several vendors who restore steering wheels.

There is one in particular who shows at the Spring Carlisle

show and swap meets. He does beautiful work, and will do the

large Mack steering wheels. My poor memory says that the price

didn't seem too bad either.

I'll see if I can find the name and phone #, and post it ASAP.

Never tried them...but we are looking for a new wheel restoration vendor. Our old one closed after one of the owners passed away.

Mike,

The vendor I'm thinking of has a very nice early

50's Chevrolet panel van street rod that he uses to

advertise his company.

I remember the car, just not the guy!

I'll find his card here somewhere and post the info.

Dear Mr. Marcel Ledbetter,

I respect your input in every forum reply. I should thank you for the recent ad that was put into the BMT site letting me know of the Mack. So keep up the good work. I believe you understand what I mean.

Thanking You

If you are so inclined, Rob just had a post in the last week or so with several paragraphs of how he has restored steering wheels.

Very detailed.

Here it is:

and 'ya know, Rob has never been known to be wrong about anything...

you threw it in the second drawer from the top, on the left side of the big tool box, with the miscellaneous paperwork and outdated owner's manuals for equipment bought in the '60's and thrown away in the '70's...I saw it on Google Earth.

Probably won't catch me giving wrong information on the web cause if I've not been there and done that, I don't present the information as a known fact. If I do participate, it is from experience, and confidence from a firm stance.

Of course there is the art of "not getting caught" too.....
