Sand, prime, and paint the steering wheel with the same paint you use for dash, wheels, etc. I used rustoleum almond paint on mine and it's holding up great. It's all in the prep as you already know. I don't have a close up, but here it is. Also, if there are cracks or gouges, open them up with a dremel and use JB weld putty to fill them in, then sand smooth.

The steering wheel is the same one used on an Allis "G" farm tractor. Brand new reproduction steering wheels are readily available for $30-$50. Check eBay or Steiner. I repaired the wheel on my Simplicity 700 eight years ago with JB weld but it started cracking again within a few years.

   ACmowerguy I have seen those new wheels for sale but I wanted to keep the wheel white, I am going to try what classic suggested clean one of my good steering wheel up real good and paint it with automotive paint.  see how it holds up.

   Been a little slow here, really cold outside and I am waiting to get tires, I am getting a set from thecoventryplumber for shows and am going to buy a new set for daily use but they are expensive.  got all the rims painted along with  the dash and they came out god.  need to sand and repaint the dash to get a nice finish to it.001.JPG 002.JPG

   Doing lots of the small stuff, re-built the lower mower clutch assy and re-painted it.  had to re-make the clutch arm and guard as they were either worn out or non existent on dads machine. even got the rear hitch group all painted and re-assembled.  003.JPG 005.JPG 006.JPG 007.JPG 009.JPG

   Got the chassis back down to work with a little help from my brother in law and will try to get that ready for its final coat of paint this week.  then I can begin the final assy.

   Going slow now, need to get lots of small things done and they are time consuming.  working on all the chrome work, I am going to re-make most of it with stainless and polish it, pics to come.  Got the material in today to make the foot pads, they look good.   I making extra's of everything here and putting them on e-bay so if there is something someone wants let me know and I will give members a great deal.

You're making great progress and it looks great so far. Are you still looking for a hood?

   Thank you farmerall but I was able to straighten out the hood good enough to do the job.  I am going to start sanding on it soon for the final coat off paint.

   Making more stuff for the tractor now, I made new side rails for the grille out of stainless, looking or a replacement piece o perforated aluminum, I have a good line on one from e-bay..  working on the lift handle, going to replace that with stainless to polish up to a mirror finish. the original chrome was ok but not good enough for what I wanted and someone took a wire wheel to the lift handle so that was not fixable it was either paint it or replace it.

IF you made the grille sides for a b212 out of stainless I'd love some for mine. thanks
