You couldn't order a cushion grip for a 69? I could have sworn that was an option, I learn something new here every day! That being said, I'm leaving mine on, I think they are the best looking wheel for a 69 (except the rosewood of course, with the matching rosewood dash!)Originally posted by DjD:
I think I have to partially disagree with John on this one... The NK1 wheel was the "cushioned rim" wheel and never made it onto a '69. There are many colors of this wheel and they were found on Vettes, Buicks and others. Here's a bit more...
On the other hand if you are not completely looking for correct, I agree with John it would be a nice touch...
The only reason you needed to remove the plate was to install the cam that has the tube on it for the spring and eyelet or dowel like piece. The lock plate then goes back on. When I installed mine the lock plate wouldn't fit back so the ring clip could be snapped in place and I determined the cam I got with the kit was not the right piece. I believe I used the one that was there from the orig wheel but I may have had one in a box, it's been too long ago.Originally posted by drdave69:
I am gonna hijack this thread a little.
I just installed one of these wheels (kit from Rick's)in my car (first time installer) and have a question. I had to remove the plate that controls the steering wheel lock feature. Does this plate need to be installed with the cushion-grip wheel in some manner? Of course, my steering wheel no longer locks. The installation instructions do not show the entire procedure.
