 Post subject: steering wheel Accord 1980?...
PostPosted: Wed Aug 26, 2009 7:21 pm 
Howdy!

New member from Argentina. Just know the site and i´m pretty excited. I own a beautiful Accord hatchbak white 1980, i love it.
One of the few things that is bugging me is the steering wheel. it´s pretty used, actually. i just know that with a better- or new one, the car would ´feel´a whole lot better.
So i guess the question is this: WHERE can i find a new steering whell to buy? How much would it cost?...

Looking forward to your replies.
Thanks
Fede

They are still available brand new from Honda dealers. Online pricing seems to be $400-$450. A good used one may be more cost effective. $400 for a stock wheel is pretty steep.

Bind an old wheel in leather after filling rim imperfections with urethane sealant/adhesive (sets like rubber) ?
Though the plastics can warp about awfully too.

Late 2g Accord 4-spoke wheel didn't look too bad either.

Though I painted up a standard 1g Civic wheel for a brushed steel & "wood" retro Honda look.

Hadn't intended it for the Accord but couldn't resist.

Thanks guys for the answers.
