            I wonder how well round wheel chocks work? Didn't the Egyptians move blocks of stones with round rollers? Chocks work well if you don't forget to place them. I was interrupted once had forgot until I was chasing my van down the hill. My neighbor said sorry see you later!

              I carry a cheap but effective chock from Autozone. It fits between and tucked under the front seats of the Tudor. It's cheap and effective insurance and works better than a makeshift chock.

                  Consider it a 'belts and suspenders' kind of thing.

                    The service bulletins say to put the E.B. on before you wash your car??? Are they AFRAID it will run away, like an Old Dog, before his bath?
                    Buster T. has SHORT hair & can clean himself to his SKIN! In 7 years, he's NEVER had a BATH & smells as fresh as a DAISY!! It's like havin' a SELF cleanin' OVEN--LOL
                    You know WHY a Dog licks his "YING-YANG"?----Because he CAN!---LOL

                    by Grover
                    Handy wheel chock that stows in a small space. Got this at a small swap meet in Winfield KS many years ago.

                    Cleaning My New Steering Wheel
                    by Cape Codder
                    I thought I would take some time off from cleaning my NEW Steering wheel.

                    The first picture shows how I have mounted to do it. I sit 90 degrees to the shaft while working. Much easier than working on it
                    as you would while sitting in the car. The pipe vise was a gift from my Uncles Estate years ago. Thanks Uncle Jake!

                    Original Thread

                    OK, restoring the 1928 red steering wheel is actually easier than you think. I started off with a rather shabby wheel with several cracks and a couple of missing pieces. I began by laying out some newspaper and began sanding the entire wheel with 320 grit sandpaper over the paper so I could collect the red dust off of the wheel. Try not to sand off the circular grooves...

                    Black Steering Wheel
                    by popsjohn
                    My 1930 black steering wheel is not cracked but is faded. I've read what I could find on this form and it mostly deals with repairing cracks in the steering wheel. I tried a little sanding with 600 wet sandpaper which made the wheel smoother but didn't get rid of the fading. Maybe I should be using a coarser grit sandpaper? Would paste wax help? Should I paint it? What paint should I use? Looking...

                    New 15" steering wheel.
                    by Blown Gasket
                    I finished my steering wheel replacement with the new 15" wheel. I bought this from Agri Supply for $27.00, it is a vintage John Deere tractor wheel. I added a leather grip and had to make the plate under the wheel and covering the spark and throttle levers. I had to also make the horn button hub otherwise the horn button would be sticking out and look funny. We like it and it makes it easier...
