EMPI GTV steeringwheel resturation

I spend some time the last days restoring two Empi GTV Steeringwheels from Kurt "Empiparts" Van Perre.  The result looks good to me and they still have the originality of a genuine GTV wheel.  Let the pictures speak for itself.  If you want me to restore your GTV wheel or other wooden sportswheel, just Email me on lowlight@scarlet.be and I'll make you an reasonable offer.

Kurt gave me a 14 inch and a 15 inch wheel to restore.  The alu hub was re-polished again too all in the original style.

The lacquer used on the wood doesn't give scratches easily and for a wheel that is important!

the living proof that late models do work as a basis to build a Callook beetle.  This great little car was a star at the EBI 2.  Very nice car, Roland.

Happy to have my engine the way I wanted it

I was happy, my car was ready for the EBI with my Italian 48 IDA's in the back.  I just love the way the car sounds now.

Franse Fred just finished his blue callook for the show.  The bumpers were not ready yet, so he put T-bars on it.  Nice ride with a vintage Empisprint-kit engine in the back and a lot of Empi accessoires.
