Model T aluminum locking steering wheel

Post by Tmodelt » Sat Mar 23, 2019 7:33 pm

All thoughts / ideas welcome. The aluminum spider has been painted white with what looks like house paint. The rim will be replaced. What would be the easiest / fastest way to remove this paint without affecting the locking mechanism? I don't plan on polishing. Thanks

Kim if you have a turkey fryer and a large pot with hot water does an amazing job!

Should I turn the heat on under the fryer to keep water hot? Just got 2 new keys cut. The locksmith made sure lock and key worked.
