Steering Wheel Restoration - Best In Show?
Have a 68 with deluxe interior, and my steering wheel was so destroyed the couple restoration shops I approached (Gary's and I think Steering Wheel Bob - been a while) told me it was so far gone even they couldn't save it. That led me to considering an aftermarket wheel from Best In Show, since NPD now offers them. I contacted BIS to see if they used original or aftermarket cores (I know, but had to ask) since I was concerned about fit issues (seen a thread a thread or two about aftermarket wheels not completely seating on the column). Last week or so been trading emails with a pretty informative and responsive guy named Jay at BIS who told me the NPD wheels are made from aftermarket cores, but mentioned he had an original 68 deluxe core he could use to build a wheel for me. Bit of a premium, but going original helps remove a lot of concerns.
Can anyone comment on their experience with BIS steering wheels? How they look (workmanship), how they fit, and if anyone has purchased or had them restore an original, how did it turn out, especially the textured wood grain finish?
