The original metal steering wheel was sanded, cleaned and sprayed with gloss white Rustoleum paint. I wanted to use the original chrome bezel that positions the wheel at 35 degrees instead of the Teleflex 20 degree mount but did not have time to make this. Since no mounting bracket exist to hold a teleflex helm at 35 degrees, I designed one that would hold the helm under the console. I made several prototypes and finally got one that worked. Now I have to fabricate and weld up. I will have by spring 2004 because I don’t really like the teleflex plastic bezel. I sprayed chrome to make it look like chrome. I want to get the boat back to original as much as I can. Because the original steering wheel cap nut is too big to hold down to the wheel to the helm shaft, I made a fake cap nut to cover the real teleflex nut that holds the wheel to the helm shaft. I made a mold of the original cap nut and cast it with a white liquid material from Smooth On. With a rotary tool, I routed out the interior of the casting so it would sit over the teleflex helm nut. I sprayed chrome, applied adhesive and installed. The Teleflex cable used was 9’ long.
