That is too funny!

What kinda paint are you using for your wheels? I am getting ready to bodywork/paint the black steering wheel for my 65.

What did you end up doing with that standard wheel? That thing is killer!

Bret its a mix that closely matches the factory bluish/grayish/black, with satin clear. We home-mixed a couple pints of it. My pedals, column, turn signal switch, e-brake and steering wheel all match.

The standard wheel is safely stashed away for now. It might reappear in the 67 bug.

Nice. I'm gonna have my seat frames/steering column/rear seat bottom support powder coated soon to math the rest of the black on the pan - just need to match the black for the wheel and turn signal housing. I got a lot of black on the interior of my car (all knobs, door panel escutcheons, grab handle, shifter, e-brake, pedals, and everything attached to the the column). Gotta keep it uniform. Wink

I used to have a Coach wheel that was painted black. I hated those wheels until I saw it in black, then I had to have it!! It looks perfect in your type 3.

Bret- Yes sir, uniformity is key!

Zach- Thanks! You're right, the Coach wheel is ugly as shit with that plastic wood grain. I don't like that blue coach horn button either. The button off my Formula wheel fit, so I used it. Also, the horn ring is just for looks. I pieced this thing together. Got the wheel, horn ring and boss all separately. The plastic pieces that go behind the spokes are literally impossible to find for sale. I don't even know what the hardware combo would be to make it work anyway. Never inspected a working one.

Haha, my horn plastic pieces were busted up too. That was 10+ years ago! I don't know what the horn push was from, but I liked it.

Yesterday was tune up day on the notch. Valves adjusted, timing checked, heads retorqued, clutch adjusted and I installed my 1-2 valve cover breather. It came out great and the oil drain back works well too.

Ya know.... you grow up before the internet and all you can do is read car magazines and go to shows. So it stands to reason you dream about one day having a car of your own featured in one of those magazines. I know my car is no show car, after all its just a patina car, and I never even considered it would possibly get a magazine spread.... but I worked my ass off with what I had and someone thought it was cool enough to take their time to honor that. I think thats pretty fuckin cool.
