I was thinking of restoring mine but then I got my 75 parts car and it has an early steering wheel in it which is way easier to restore. I dont know what you whould do about the padding on our stock wheels?!?

tell me this: was there a big spring between your horn pad and the contactor ring? i'm thinking that the reason my horn pad is so jiggly is because it's missing a spring to hold it taught away from the wheel.

American stitches did a great job on my 76 steering wheel. I posted some pictures a few years ago. It was showroom quality. They kept it about 2 weeks.

saridout, yes - there is a spring. The horn button should fit nice and firm. I had to go to the junk yard to find that spring.

Regards!
