The Start

 

September13

I started work on the steering wheel. the plastic of the wheel had disintragrated leaving only the metal reinforcing ring. I bought a used 18inch wheel on Ebay. I think it was from a Buick. I cut out the center and ground away the plastic to expose the steel reinforcing ring Then I welded the Riley spokes to the ring.

More steering wheel work.  I filled in the parts of the missing rim with epoxy (PC17).

September 15

I finished faring the epoxy and filled any small surface nicks.  Then I primed, sanded and painted the wheel.  The only question I have is if the color is correct.
