He Recovers Tractor Steering Wheels
Darrell Cranfill, Hillsboro, Ill.: There are a couple of Midwestern companies that specialize in recovering old tractor steering wheels, but Darrell found a way of doing it himself.
"Plasti-Dip is a rubber coating that comes in a can. It's normally used to cover tool handles to get a better grip. I had a dilapidated old steering wheel I was working on. I first built up cracks and chips with body putty and sanded those areas smooth to match the rest of the wheel.
"Then I applied several heavy coats of Plasti-Dip, using the version that comes in an aerosol spray can. It gave the steering wheel a great finish, not too shiny and not too dull. I got a like new steering wheel for the price of a dab of body putty and the Plasti-Dip, which sells for $5 per 11 oz. can."
