The Bluemel's 16.6" steering wheel on my very early BN1, although
structurally sound. is in poor condition. The rim is badly cracked and
faded with some fairly substantial hunks missing, very little of the
original coating on the hub remains however, fortunately, the chrome on the
spokes is in excellent condition.
Repro wheels of this type are unavailable so I'm considering trying to
restore the one I have.
I see that Eastwood sells a "Steering Wheel Restoration"
I'm considering starting there.
Does anyone have experience with this kit or any other advice before I
start this project.

Many thanks,
Michael Salter
