My first job as a teenager was making Grant and Ansen steering wheels at a company called Covilon in La Verne, California. We would get center section from Grant. We would roll tube and weld the pieces together. I remember mixing the different colors of metal flake in liguid viynl, coating the wheel then trimming the excess plastic. I must of made a gazillion or bazillion of the things. But they sure were popular, even today I see them being manufactured and sold at local part stores. I had a classic Covico thirteen inch, foam covered deep dish hanging in my garage for decades. But it disapeared one day. Hope it found a good home.
