    Cool Finished restoring the deluxe wheel

    I found that I did not have the deluxe wheel on my van... so I restored the deluxe wheel that came with my horn ring. It was not in too bad of condition, so it was fairly easy/ I also did some 24k gold leaf on the horn ring... after all my van is called "Goldie"!

    Thanks! I am so glad I got the wheel in the package, cause mine was not a deluxe! Funny, nobody who had helped me noticed the difference. Restored the wheel in a few days, looks great!

    There is no difference between a standard wheel and a deluxe wheel (only the horn ring) What ledZeppvan has is a 2nd gen wheel with a 1st gen standard horn button installed into it.


    2nd gen wheel has the cut recess around the top to clear the 2nd gen horn button.

    Thanks M1dadio for the explanation. Good to know if there were differences between standard or deluxe and the difference between 1st and 2nd gen. Sorry Jacke, I saw I mispelled your name on last post.

    Here are some side by side photos... yep the inside/outside is different on each lip, standard seems slightly larger and the depth is different inside. I believe like M1 said 2nd Gen mixed with 1st Gen... that's how I got it.
    The standard wheel... I thought was a deluxe, was not. LOL... but, I did have a deluxe wheel, just had to restore it.
    I never noticed the difference until trying to install the horn ring onto the wrong wheel. Then it was obvious, even to me! LOL
    All is right now that I have the correct wheel and horn ring. And a tiny bit more knowledge.

    Jacke, I feel badly if I gave you the wrong steering wheel! I apologize for the mix-up.

    No, I had the wrong wheel which I picked from a yard. I had restored it thinking it was a deluxe wheel. So, I restored the one you sold me. It was easy, not hard at all. Looks great and correct for the cap.
