I have a 1967 Chevelle SS with original SS
steering wheel. The outside body color is
marina blue. The interior color, including
steering wheel is bright blue.

The steering wheel paint is starting to peel
in certain areas. I want to repaint the wheel. I believe I can match the paint.
Advice on preparation, sanding ?, and so forth.

Thanks,

Ken McD...

P.S. Yes, I plan to mask off the interior. But want to do it right the first time.

You are planning to remove the wheel to do this right? why would you have to mask the interior to paint the wheel?

Trust me, it is better to pull the wheel unless you feel like masking everything inside the car. Hear me now and believe me later. You will find overspray in subtle little corners. I do recommend priming the wheel as you will find any inperfections that you may not have been aware of. Use epoxy to fill any cracks or scratches. Take your time and it will look stunning.
