If you're up for a challenge, repair your old one with epoxy. Sand it and form it , then paint it.

There are companies that do it, too. Usually runs about $300.

Do you think THAT is to rescued :?: Broken and cracked at multiple points at rim and along both spockes with reason of the hot arizona sun. Needs a lot of epoxy filler, I guess. :(

That´s my result: one week of cutting, glueing, epoxy filling and sanding. Now it is at a lokal carpainter. Get it back in January finished in glossy black and two layers of 2K clearcoat.

Beautiful work Roland. I think you've inspired me to do the same thing with my mom's 1964 Ford Galaxie wheel.

That’s looking good so far! Was thinking of doing the same with my steering wheel but I don’t know what I’m working with since there’s an old wheel cover on it. I’ll probably do it myself than have it repaired by someone else (to gain experience and for the budget).
