Series III steering wheel


can you buy 'em still?


I've just been painting mine, 'cos it was naff - 's now a fetching shade of
terracotta.

but I was wondering if there are any new ones to be had?

Re: Series III steering wheel

Interesting question cos mine ain't going to last forever, there are some
cracks.

I think I did see some company at one of the shows who restore old steering
wheels, what bothers me if I have to replace mine is that I will have to get
a smaller one putting more strain on my shoulders when I park the thing.

You could always lube the steering relay, that normally eases things off a
tad... ?? That's what I did when I had my old SIII and I put an Ital
steering wheel onto it.

Or, if you can find one of the right diameter, a Mini steering wheel boss is
the same spline - but don't do what we tried once & put on a small Mini
steering wheel - looked great but no way could we steer any more without the
leverage a big wheel gives you.
Of course, we all know you don't steer a Series - you aim it.
