Casting a new steering wheel

Here is a fascinating video showing how to cast new steering wheel plastic over an old "banjo" style steering wheel core, using a casting material called "Alumilite".  The same material can be used to cast hard-to-find headlight lenses for pre-Sealed Beam era cars.

    Great video. Would be good if someone could make some 1934 lens's. Barry

    Its not impossible to DIY to whatever lenses you need but I imagine there would be a lot of unknown 'tricks of the trade' waiting to trip you up along the way. Talk to Greg Eshelman, he is well practised in reproducing taillight lenses and steering wheel centres etc, although I could see reproducing headlight lenses being a degree of difficulty harder.
