    There's a guy that shows up to the "old"..Fathers Day swap meet at the Pomona Fair Grounds.
    I don't what other shows he goes to. Maybe the quarterly swap meet too. Sorry, don't recall his name either, but this guy does REALLY nice work.
    He restores wheels and he'll also make a given wheel smaller in diameter. He does from 1940's wheels and up.

    All I can say is dig deep into Google..! I'll give it a try tomorrow, see what I can find.

    Per X38's post -

    Yeah, this just may be the guy. The show layout looks similar. The quality of the restorations looks good, but I don't see any "shrinking" of wheels like I saw at Pomona. Oh well, this "is one" guy that does good work. There may be more.

  7. I'm pretty sure I've seen smaller diameter Mercury wheels from them. No absolute, but pretty sure. (one way to find out ;))

    I had Koch redo a 56 Olds steering wheel for me when we lived in LA 15 years ago. Beautiful job. Looks like they are still around, they used to attend alot of the LA swap meets.
