My heater controls have a lighted face, provision for the bulb and the wiring to power the bulb. I bought a set of heater controls at a swap meet just for the cables, this set up did not have the provisions for a bulb. I don't know when the swap meet part was built, but as we know, G.M. did weird stuff back then. Just my opinion , not proven fact. Terry
Interesting. Mine had the provision for the bulb (round opening on the RH side of the controls) but no trace of a wire. I even searched the harness for signs of a stub). Of course its possible that the control could have been swapped at some time, based on some minor changes I found I do suspect the car had been ""restored"" sometime around 20 years ago or so, long before it was hotrodded, so anything is possible

Its SEM Color Coat Landeau black, same as the dashboard & the steering column.
I sanded the steering wheel down through the gold pain in many places, then cleaned it, shot first with SEM sand free adhesion promoter then the paint.

So far so good, thought haven't really abused it much yet.
It didn't peel off with my fingers the first few times I took it out to drive in the hot sun, so I figure thats a win!

Read about it on Amazon. Sounds like a really good product. Amazing results. Maybe I will use it when I redo my steering wheel,etc.

Thanks for the tip.
