Steering Wheel - Sneak Peak

Hi All,

Sneak peak at ongoing project.

The car already has a reproduction MotaLita wooden steering wheel, however at Christmas my Dad kindly gave me an original steering wheel of his old MG.
This is both original vintage and a family heirloom so it's very cool and very special.
Only down side is that it's cracked.

I've managed to get it welded but with a big bead of weld.
Out with the files, wet and dry and dremel and we are getting there.

I think it looks go so far
Rest of the wheel still to do, more wet''n'dry, polishing, sort the wood and give the back of the boss some crackle paint.

Next . . . . Seats. Actually there are out at the moment and I've already done the base, just got to put them back in.
