VERY technical post! ** CAUTION ** NOT for the beginer!!

Howdy Misery, got this idea from The Big Boss Man. Figured I'd post pictures of this VERY difficult & EXTREMELY challenging technical job I just completed on Old Rusty. Waiting for the pictures to load to Photo Bucket, already sent. Will add them when they load. May not be QUITE as challenging as his light bulb change, still NOT recommended for the beginner/novice . Steering wheel cover change.

Pictures FINALLY loaded this morning. Remember boys & girls, do NOT try this at home!!!

Step 1) Go to your nearest local store selling an appropriate type steering wheel cover. I went to K-Mart. You may be able to find this at Wally World also, The Zone, Ches probably has something at Slow Reilly's. Below picture is what I used. Admittedly, Old Rusty does NOT have a Triton (I should be so lucky), but for this, it's okay.



Next, remove the old cover you are replacing. Sorry, no pictures of this step.

After removal, place off to the side. Now in my case, Old Rusty had ANOTHER old worn out lace on type under the first one. See picture below:




I do have pictures of this step.

Start by unlacing the old plastic string around the cover.





Continue unlacing. As you go along you will begin to accumulate more of the old plastic lace.





Once you have the old lace completely removed the next step is to remove the old cover. ** NOTE ** This is very important for a correct job. You don't want to leave the old one on when you install the new one.




Next, set the old worn out cover & plastic lace to the side. You are done with that part except for disposal at the end.




Again, not ALL pictures went through. The next (& last picture will show the end result of this job. To quote the Haynes manual, "installation is the reverse of removal".







Congratulations, you have now successfully replaced your steering wheel cover.!! Relax with the beverage of your choice & admire what you have accomplished.

Sorry Rich, trying to wait till I get legal (still have my EXPIRED Misery plates). Long story, plates expired end of Sept. Took it in for an inspection after the exhaust system fell off, got that fixed, but failed for lower ball joints. Shortly after that (approx. 1 week), he died. Had him towed to Tech School & didn't get him back till Mid-Dec. Knew I had to move then, didn't see any sense buying new plates for a couple weeks & paying the late fee on top of that. Would've had to have a new inspection too with the new ball joints in. I will post on the NEW handling characteristics after I take him out for a test drive.

This is what I was referring too! What is looking good? I did nothing to even warrant a mention in this thread, yet my name is here.

Apparently I gave too much credit, in getting an answer.

I'm sure glad somebody post'd this.... I have one of those to put on Ka'Bluey when he comes back out of the back yard! Can't be soon enough. I really want to play with my truck! It's 65 degrees out, at times sunny. And he really "Can't Play"

Unk Bob
