Hello everyone, I make the wheel inlays. Most on this page already know me but to those who don't.

I've got the 69-70 Tamo, and the 76-78 Walnut inlays. I'm working on the 71 Light Tamo right now (Matti, did you get that sample?!)

I have a few other things going too.
One is the chrome outline on the 69-70 instrument panels. Mine, as most was well worn and bad looking. I created a pre cut sheet which when carefully installed gives factory new results. Initially it's quite a difference looking at your dash, mine looks fantastic now. It takes some definite skill and patience to install though.

I can make any design from factory to custom. If you have any questions let me know.

I am interested in both the steering wheel inlay and the chrome outline.  I have to first repair the cracks in the steering wheel itself before I install a new inlay.  I have patience, but don't know if I have the skills for the chrome outline.  The original had a thin layer of chrome (tape?) over a thin piece of plastic which was glued to the panel.  When I restored the dash, I attempted to save that plastic piece, but it was very brittle and broke into small pieces when worked.

I have a 71,73, and 76 that need the wood inlay.
I’ll be anxious to see the video and the products.
