I'm always surprised about the less rust - just sniping around, almost no rust. Other parts of the car like steering column are full of a light rustfilm. I now have done some wax into the doors but beside the hinges there is almost no rust.

Yes, I like it too. Mine is a bit used, at one point the rubber comes off a bit. Maybe I'll let it cover by leather.

By the way, is it easy to remove? Just open all visible screws? My hazard flasher switch is just a woodscrew {puke}. I have a new cable set with a real plastic hazard flasher switch. To change it the wheel has to be removed.

:) Was the idea of my lady. Things get strangely when ladies geht cool ideas around V8 cars and Star Trek :eek: Maybe I'm interpreting too much in there. Probably she wanted only the Star Trek magnet away from her fridge  ;D

The wheel is pretty simple to remove.
You'll need a puller. I think a stock wheel needs a 2 bolt puller.
With a puller like this... https://www.harborfreight.com/bolt-type-wheel-puller-set-62620.html?cid=paid_google|||62620&utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=&utm_content=&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI4uqx68Lv7wIVTT6tBh2hpA5FEAQYASABEgI_CPD_BwE
It can pull a wheel with 2 or 3 bolts.
And it comes in handy for pulling other things off our trucks.

Before you remove it, make a mark in the steering wheel and on the shaft(straight pencil or sharpie line) so you can align it later.

Yep. Stock wheels will do that for you.
I can't stand the stock wheel. Way too big of a diameter for me.
With a Grant wheel and their adapters... you can put the wheel anywhere you want.

Yes. That's the one.
I've had my steering wheel off so many times now. It's just like second nature. Almost like I know what I'm doing. ;D

At the end I'll pay almost 100$ just to have no screw but a real hazard flasher switch :eek: ;D
You can do it yourself. Looks easy

Or do it the hard way like tris guy;)

Having such an extractor makes sense. I'm sure I'll use it also for other things than the wheel. Thanks for the tip.

On the first one they recommend metric bolts. I'm pretty sure our trucks do not use not metric. Make sure of the threads before you try to screw the wrong stuff in there.
On the second video... I don't think so. ;D

I'll buy this box with metric and non metric screws. The guy in the video seems to have fun removing the wheel. Think he'll do it for a beer  ;D

I'd do it for free, just to see how it goes.

I have installed a switch to turn the electric off when the car is in the garage.
