Steering Wheel Restoration, FAQ
What steps do I need to take to get my vintage steering wheel repaired?
At Yesteryear Steering Wheel Restoration we recommend you email us some photos of your classic steering wheel first so we can see it, assess it and get an idea of costs involved. Once we’ve done that then you simply post your vintage steering wheel to us and we set to work restoring it with our special, handcrafted techniques. It’s a good idea to register your steering wheel parcel with Australia Post, as we will when returning it to you.
I live overseas; will you still do steering wheel repairs for me?
