I recently repaired a steering wheel on one of my wheelhorse RJs , it had a 4 inch long chunk missing from the underside where the finger grips are. After a lengthy study of the situation I came upon a product called por 15 im sure alot of you have heard of it, Its a part A/B product. I kneaded it together and made a mold from a good section of the wheel applying oil first so it wouldn't stick to it. I then let

 it dry for a hour,after removing the new formed mold I mixed another batch oiled the inside of the new mold and placed the new batch inside of it. All I had to do was push it up into the void trim the excess from around the repair and boy howdy it came out perfect, very little sanding. thanks HANKG.

Well thats something I haven't seen before, repairing steering wheels with paint. I guess if it works why not.  About how thick is the repair?  I don't use that stuff, but hoping it won't crack on you after awhile. Good luck with it! Hope it lasts you a long time!

They make many different products, as mentioned. I have a friend that had used it inside of a gas tank of his motorcycle as instructed. About a year ago the coating started coming off in sheets and caused him big time head aches in the gas system. After much money trying to find the cause of the problem of running poorly and many other items purchased he ended up replacing the gas tank. So I often wonder how good of a product is it.
