We started out with an
original '33 Ford wheel. It was a little rough, but it will have the
perfect look in the car when it's redone.
use the horn button with the outer ring (originally used for a dome light
switch). It doesn't fit real well to the wheel so we'll make an aluminum
adapter that we'll polish for a nice look. The outside diameter will fit
the flat area of the wheel perfectly.
We turned the ring in
our lathe - it will look like an original piece when we're done.
|Here's the finished piece (just brush finished at this point). Now we need to down size the wheel and also give it a little depth.|
|We had a company called Pearlcraft Steering Wheels in Victoria, Australia reduce the diameter and add some depth to the wheel. From here, we just need to do some primering and paintwork.|
|The wheel in it's final coats of primer. One more blocking and it's ready for paint.|
|The finished piece. It's going to look perfect in the coupe. It's also nice to have a functioning wheel mounted horn button.|
