Re: Messed up Steering Wheel (with pics) --plz help me-- :(

[quote author=MZR23MZ3 link=topic=136143.msg2933660#msg2933660 date=1234502040]
remove the air bag, buy some devcon plastic weld at walmart,

take 200grit sandpaper and sand the cover
clean with acetone or warm water and soap (make sure 100% dry)
mix the epoxy weld
work quicky
spread the epoxy into the gouges and then let it cure for 48 hours, after two days sand the highspots down and to original contours

use 200, 400, then 1000 or a buffing wheel with polishing compound.

buy automotive interior and vinyl dye (in areosol can) (black)

Follow instructions and use multiple coats

Viola, you just restored your mistake and now you can paint the mazda emblem or leave it black like the rest of the wheel

^yeah, that....or some local wrecking or tow yard maybe? Simplest would be a new airbag. Covering it with suede will interfere with the airbag and not be too safe. Restoring it like described above would be the cheapest probably..

*shrugs* I just know cause I learned how to drive a stick on one and recognize that mid dash shifter placement. I'm not up on my Alfa models but the older convertible ones? :p Looking forward to your updated pics though!
