I remove all the old plastic, bead blast the frame and paint it in the original color as the plastic. Through my proprietary process, I cast on a specially formulated thermoset UV stable proprietary plastic in the original configuration without loss of the original detail. The plastic does not shrink, crack, turn yellow or change colors.
The steering wheel frame is placed into the appropriate mold. The clear liquid plastic is tinted to the desired color and added to the mold. Upon completion of the curing process, the plastic is heat treated, sanded and polished. The color is uniform throughout the plastic and the finished product is polished plastic, not a painted wheel. The molded plastic is one complete casting, there are no joints.
