I painted my 1930 steering wheel in 1968 with a quality black, and it is not peeling or rubbing off. I think wrapping the wheel is a fine solution and looks interesting.

Re: Rear axle housing grease zerk question

That was always my thought as well. Maybe obvious enough that it didn't generate any discussion. The grease is free to go to the wheel bearing.

Re: New member with "new" 1922 Model T

When you get the mat buy an owners manual and a copy of the service manual.

Only pull up when starting with a hand crank.
