This is just a quick thank you note for doing such a fabulous job on my 1968 Firebird standard steering wheel. It’s better than new and will look great in my bird. It’s kind of a rare wheel because it was 1 year only and many of the birds that had it, tossed it because it was the less desirable wheel at the time. As you can see in one of the pictures, it matches my interior quite well! I thought you may like a picture of the wheel with my NOS horn cap, too.
Thank you for your service and I hope we can work together again!

The steering wheel arrived yesterday. “Impressive” hardly describes it. It’s almost too nice to install on the car. I was really impressed with your packaging. The old saying “you get what you pay for” is true. Great job! Thanks.

Hey Bob, just wanted to let you know I got my wheel. It looks great and it is already getting a ton of complements!
Here are some pics against the dash bezels and gauges.
I’m already getting people asking who did the wheel for me. Is it ok to pass out your phone number?
Thanks again, Bob!

Just a quick note to let you know that an absolutely gorgeous steering wheel arrived in the mail today. Every aspect of this transaction has been outstanding. I will be sure to let others know about your remarkable service.

Just a quick note to let you know that my steering wheel arrived yesterday on my doorstep. I was pleasantly surprised to see 2 things:
1) The way it was packaged. It was obvious to me that you are serious about preserving your finished work
2) And of course, the finished product. It was gorgeous! If I had only one complaint, it would be that it is shinier than anything else on the tractor!
It is beautiful work Bob, and I thank you very much for doing this restoration for me.
I'll be sending you more photos after I get the tractor completed, hopefully in a couple of months. Until then, thank you again!

As usual you did a FANTASTIC JOB on that '67 GTO wheel. It looks better than new and the color matches exactly. I can't wait to get it installed!
THANK YOU so much!

I am so pleased with the steering wheel. This is exactly what I’ve envisioned to complete this roadster. I can’t thank you enough.
I hope everything goes well for you in the future.
Thank you again Bob

Hey Bob, I just had to say once more how pleased I am with the resize and restoration of the steering wheel for my 60 Biscayne, I know i'm probably as picky as they come, but it is perfect, thanks again.

WOW! The steering wheel for my 1950 Studebaker "Bullet-Nose" looks fabulous. Looks like new. The color is right - matches the interior. No more pinched hands. Good for another 70 years and then some. Certainly my life time. I will enjoy driving my iconic car proudly.
Rest assured that I will get your name out there whenever possible as the steering wheel go-to guy.
Thank you so much,

Hi Bob, Just wanted to let you know how happy I am with my steering wheel. Considering the condition it was in, your work is amazing. It far exceeded my expectations it was so bad. It's the prettiest thing on my car. I lined up the wheel with your 2 x 4 method and worked perfectly. Thank you so much for your beautiful work on my wheel. I just sit in the car and stare at it now. Robert

Hi Bob, As promised, I held off opening your package until Christmas morning. When I first saw the quality of your steering wheel repair, I was blown away. I almost cried like a baby. The wheel I sent you was a basket case. The magic you were able to work on that wheel was nothing short of remarkable. It is now in better than new condition. You are a true artisan and I am so glad that our paths crossed. Thank you so very, very much for all your hard work. It is sincerely appreciated.

Got the wheel and you did a Fantastic job on it! The color is correct and it looks better than new! Thanks for doing it right and feel free to use me as a reference to any Packard friends.
Enclosed is a pre-restoration photo of the car.

I apologize if I previously failed to acknowledge receipt of my beautifully-restored wheel! Thank you! Upon seeing it, I said -- to myself -- "This is fabulous: I have got to thank Bob." But then I got distracted by the next project and just thought of the wheel today, when I packed it up for its trip to Maine this week.
I appreciate that fellows such as you take the time to, have an interest in, and have the patience and skill required to restore the many components that comprise our antique cars and trucks! Thank you.

I just received my steering wheel for my WC40 WWII truck.
Bob, you did a fantastic job bring the wheel back to life. What a pleasure to know that there is still someone out there in this world that takes pride in his craft.
A steering wheel is by far the most important piece of equipment that you will react with between yourself and the Vehicle.
I am going to be showing this truck and I know I will get bonus points for the steering wheel.
This is actually the second wheel from you and you are batting 1000. I am going to do a MGA for the wife next and I can tell you already where I am going.
Thanks again for a super job.

I have had Bob's Steering Wheel restore 4 of my Dodge steering wheels and 2 of them were in more than pretty bad shape. Bob takes the time to talk with me to make sure everything is restored perfectly and all my wheels came out show quality with an attention to detail which has been awesome!
Yes, Bob will be doing more Steering Wheels for me in the future.
