Just wanted to let you know that I just received my "Brand New Steering Wheel".  I say brand new because what was a sent to you was a mess from my 1938 Packard Eight and now it honestly is new.  


An excellent job done by you is only equaled to your great communication.   Your quickness in turnaround is also to your credit.  


Thank you Bob, you get a huge "Atta Boy" on this project.

Hi Bob,

Just wanted to let you know my Ford won an AACA First Junior last week. Your work on the steering wheel and air cleaner housing played no small part in winning that award. Thank you for your craftsmanship. It was a pleasure working with you even during the troubling Covid times.

Hi Bob

Got it back today!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is beyond spectacular!!!!!!!!!!!

You did such an amazing job - love the finish - it's perfect - very rich and very deep - so certain that it will be a perfect off white / cream match to the upholstery of the boat!!!!!

And the horn ring is the finishing touch - which I would not have found without you!!

I sent pics to my Mom and Dad - they are thrilled and can't wait to see it back on the boat this summer.

I'll send you pics after I install it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Good evening, Bob -

I hope all is well!

I got the latest wheel today and absolutely love it! I’m super excited to fully correct my April Gold bird.  This is one of the last things I needed to make it factory correct. Yeah, I’m nuts about originality.  This was my first dream bird so it holds a special place to me and I’ll never sell it.

I switched out the 3 metal strips tonight and put your perfectly painted horn buttons in them.  It’s looks sooo good! The painted silver stripes on these pieces are a beautiful touch to the wheel.

Thanks again and keep in touch my friend.

Hello Bob,


I cannot believe how well the wheel turned out! It's absolutely amazing! Everything is just how I wanted it. It looks as if it just came off the assembly line in Germany in 1937 like you said it would. You have an amazing skill and I can't thank you enough for restoring this wheel to showroom condition again.

Kind regards,

Bob -


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!

Take care,

Hi Bob,


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.



January 2021

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.

Hello Bob,

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!


Be safe,

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.



July 1, 2018



The steering wheel just arrived, man I am impressed what a beautiful job! WOW leave it to a good ole Jersey boy to get things done right...thanks again.


June 25, 2018



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.

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.


Take Care

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.


Best regards,

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.
