MG TD TF 1500 - Steering wheel restoration

I have a need to restore a steering wheel on a '54 TF. I would like to match the original finish, pearl grey. Frame is still good. Anyone know who may be able to do this please?

Thanks
Ian

Ian, Graeme (?) Tonkin did a good job of mine. He and his wife Shirley help to run the Bay to Birdwood event. He used to live in Para Hills and his phone number could be 8258 6547. He is a nice chap, I suggest a chat with him.

Ian,

I have the molds to restore the TD/TF steering wheels and offer the marbleized pearl grey color in addition to other colors.

The hubs are ultrasonically examined for soundness, stainless steel spokes are renewed if needed and a new modern urethane rim is cast around the metal frame in the correct finger grip pattern.

Please email me directly at the email link shown and we can get further into the details and costs of restoration of the steering wheel and center hub to match.

I am located in the USA. I can suggest a couple of AU suppliers if you would like to stay within continents.

Happy motoring, Ben

Many thanks Ben, I was hoping for a UK firm as the owner is a resident of the UK.

I am sure I saw an article some years ago on this subject, but I cannot locate it.
Does anyone have a UK contact please.
