Re: Steering wheel removal

Patrick McAneny

I removed mine probably ten years ago to send it out to have it coated by Color Wheels ,a vinyl coating that has held up very well and still looks new. As to getting the wheel off, it took a lot of force to get it off. If I remember correctly I put stainless hose clamps around the spokes and used a prop puller to apply the force necessary to get it off. It took much more force and time than I expected to get it to pop off. I think I would now use deneema line instead of clamps ,if I removed it again .
Hope this helps,

I do not what break anything so advice will be helpful. Wheel will be send to company that will put new leather  cover.
