Hello there again--DrB!! Looking thru the pictures here--like the Wrecker restore's--as you knew I would....:tango_face_grin::tango_face_grin:

I see those are like Chev/GMC 6500 series.trucks--do you have any problems finding OEM parts from GM--since they haven't made medeium/heavy trucks in years. Reason I ask--a friend has a big Chevy with a dump body on it--and he can't find an OEM steering wheel for it. His is cracked now in several places--and won't pass Stat Inspection here. Otherwise truck in pretty good shape.

Continue on with your projects--WE are here...

Hey Glenn epoxy and blue painters tape can fix that. :tango_face_wink:

Make a mold out of the tape over fill it and then grind/sand/file it down to the correct diameter with finger groves and all. :tango_face_grin:

It takes 9 months for you to remember where you left this thread, Doc?

Not one to panic ever, the old MTF is getting switched over to a new look soon. So don’t be surprised when you have difficulty logging in the next time.

You know, in 2021.
