Have any of you Guys tried to restore the steering wheel your self ??? 

My primary concern is the chrome rings (4 pcs) ... can I get them off, and back on after restoring??

What have you done ??

I would like NOT to ship my steering Wheel to the US and back if possible, beside that it could be fun try it out my self, as it seems to be possible.

Jan, It looks like you are in Denmark, and assume you are looking for European solutions based on your comments. I know here in the us it generally runs $500 to $1500...with the more professional restorations tending to be $1000 or more. I did get feedback from someone that sent theirs to a place in California for about $500 and was quite pleased. I had mine tilt wheel done in the late 1990's for about $350 as I recall but it is starting to show hairline cracks as I recall. As far as the chrome rings they just sort of press on being a bit smaller than the part they snap onto. If you lose, or break any, I can send you as many as you need for say a couple bucks a piece. That is one item I can say that shipping from the USA to Denmark would be inexpensive... $2 or $3 for a 1st class envelope. Perhaps others in or near Denmark will see this and post solutions in Europe.  You may also consider posting on the Cadillac LaSalle Forum since this is a restoration issue that spans several decades of Cadillacs. 

I will try fix it my self, I am sure about that now :o) . I will remember that you have the chrome rings in stock.

It is one old steering Wheel, so no matter what with a modern compound on to the old, it will most likely never be perfect forever, so it is worth a try.

Thanks Jason

Jan, and if you or anyone wants a good core with nice assortment of cracks to play around with, I have non-tilt cores for $25 and tilt cores for $40 + s/h.  I probably have about 2 dozen steering wheels on hand..only a couple of tilt ones as I recall.

I have one that I had professionally restored, I tried doing it myself and bought another steering wheel for parts, but I could not get it to turn out right. I ended up going to a steering wheel professional restoration company, cost me about  $600.00 each and I did two of them. So I have one that I am ready to sell.

If you are interested.

Hi Robert

Sounds interesting, but will have to wait a while, as I would like to see what I will end up with  during Winther. I will have you in mind for sure.

What colot is it ?

Is it with chrome rings on it too ??

That looks beautyfull, but doesnt match my car as it is right now :o) (I know it can be painted)

Hello,

Is the steering wheel still available? And what are you asking for it?

Hello, yes it still for sale.

Great,

What's your asking price?

Thanks

I added this scan below of Steering Wheel Services from the Feb 2015 Hemmings to the Steering Wheel Illustrations and Pictures photo album. I know many are looking to restore their steering wheel, and Hemmings lists several resource. If any of you have used any of these or other Services please chime on.

Hello

Anyone have a decent radiator and shrouds and hardware for a 1964 Cadillac deville. I have an alum. radiator and I'm deciding on to fix it or back to the original one. If I fix it I won't need parts.

Thanks

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted by Norman Silverman on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…
