E Type Steering Wheel Restoration

Arguably the most recognizable part of a Jaguar E type is the steering wheel? it has been copied and imitated all over the world since the E type was launched onto the market in the early sixties.

The unfortunate aspect of these wheels is that the materials used back then, mainly the adhesive that held the wood to the wheel was not as good as modern adhesives, and also I doubt if the designers figured that in fifty years people would still adore the cars and want to lavish expensive restoration upon them.

So we have been lovingly restoring these wheels now for many years and indeed have a reputation second to none for the superb refurbishment work, so much so that many have found homes in display cabinets and not back on the cars they came from.

The process involves the complete stripping back to the component parts, the refinishing and restoration of the metal work, wheels get a new mahogany wood rim and are finished to original shape and specification, we insist that the original shape be replicated but also increase the thickness slightly for added strength and ‘feel’, when refinished the wheels truly are a work of art.

Soon we will have a photo gallery showing the complete restoration process from start to finish.
