I have waited nearly three years to comment about this product. At the time I was restoring my panzer and there was discussion about restoring steering wheels, wiping down with various thinner's, sanding painting clear coating I was not convinced and after reading some of the results clear coat peeling and such, I looked for something different. Many of you have seen or used it on tools to replace handles comes in spray cans or can be dipped . It has a rubber type finish that adheres well and can be washed. I did my steering wheel with it, I recommend three coats. Held up well and has a matte finish. I'm not sure if it is available in colors in the spray cans.

I have some, and used it to dip tractor levers & such on Bush Hog GT's.  It's super good stuff!  I've never used the spray form, just the dip cans.  I have white and black.  I bought mine at a clearing house kind of store years ago.

Ace hardware is where I bought mine. If you look at the steering wheel picture by the alen head screw you can see a chunk missing that is very avoidable because I did not think to put a mule in the hole with a non stick product on it.

Just got done j-b welding the broken parts together on mine. Maybe that's what I should try on my bush hog wheel, got some black already. I've used it on other things and it seems to be good stuff. I think a lot of auto parts stores can order it almost any color you want.

  I bought a bottle of liquid elec tape the other day, so I might try it on some plier handles, etc.

Never thought of using it on a steering wheel. I know that up here in the salt belt some people use it to coat their winter rims.

Used this a lot. Plastic bumpers on vehicles, wheels on vehicles, just about everything that can be painted. A lot of other brands on the market now that do the same thing. Best part ya don't need to prime or mask off.
