Wow, I'd never considered painting the vinyl on a steering wheel, but I suppose it makes sense since you can paint other interior plastic with no issues. I'd be curious how it holds up long term as well being such a heavy contact surface.

[]Rick Lawrence

I've had luck in the past. It's when you change the color you run into more problems from my experience. I guess time will tell how it holds up, but I'm confident it will hold up pretty good

[]Jessica Pomerleau

The little subtle things can make a big difference!

[]Rick Lawrence

Most definitely. Really turned back the clock

[]Wilson Oberholzer

That's definitely a much different process for restoring the look of a steering wheel than I've ever seen. I'd be interested to see how it holds up and how it feels to drive with the refinished wheel. I feel like the paint part would feel sort of sticky to the touch, especially on hot days. I'd suggest posting an update video a few months down the road once you've had a chance to really try it out driving.

[]Rick Lawrence

I had done another one about a month ago as a trial run. So far it has held up well, and especially when the weather changes I'll do an update video

[]Wilson Oberholzer

I look forward to seeing it! I've got an old wheel in my Saab that I'm replacing anyway so I wouldn't mind trying this out on it. It definitely seems a lot less hassle than doing the stitching for a recovering kit.

[]Rick Lawrence

I can imagine the stitching being a pain. If you do try this method I'd love to see how it comes out

[]Wilson Oberholzer

I'll let you know how it turns out. My current steering wheel is peeling all over the place so I imagine it'll take a bit of the JB-Weld to get it to look nice and smooth. I'll have to see if I can find some black paint for vinyl too.

[]Rick Lawrence

Sounds good. Check Eastwood or a classic car parts supplier for the paint. They'll have what you're looking for paintwise
