    I'm having a problem finding some one to restore my steering wheel,Ive sent pictures,and e-mails to many that advertise on the web and no one will contact me or dont want to do the job.(yea I could do it myself and have done so in the past,but also looking to reduce the dia. also.) Finally sent pics to pearlcraft in Australia.Anyone know someone in the states that I may have missed?Or someone on the HAMB that does it,that would be extra cool thx.

    Yes I contacted Dennis, he couldn't identify the wheel and flat refused to do it.He was my first choice due to the translucent colors and able to reduce the dia.I didn't even ask a price.

    Thanks for the great links! I was told the wheel is a early 60's Pontiac possibly a Ventura close to the Olds the center button is different,.Pearlcraft In Australia quoted me appox.1200.00 plus about 200.00 shipping costs.Thats for reducing the Dia and Pearlising as they call it.They do a awesome job.

    it's not a 60 pontiac... it's a 59 olds wheel from a 88 model I have the same wheel in my 59 olds... the 98 models have the deep dish to them with the round medallion in the middle and a rocket. I have both steering wheels. My 59 with the same steering wheel as yours is completely stock!

    Any one have a center horn button piece for this wheel? I sent mine to the chrome shop,said 75.00,8 months later they call me to pick it up and want 240.00.If I can find another they might own that one.
