Wow - beautiful car! I love that it has no sidemounts since you rarely see that anymore. Nice job Randy!
It's also a really nice video with lots of information. Jay is very correct about the usefulness of the owners manuals. They actually told you a lot back then!

Randy is correct - you can get an incredible look from a Bakelite steering wheel: On my 1936, I repaired a steering wheel crack with 3M panel adhesive (it is a pretty close black to original) and then I just spent an entire day handpolishing - I started with 2000 sandpaper and then went to various grades/brands of polishing compound on a rag and ..... matched to some Dremmel/Moto tool work in the corners - made for a week of sore hands thereafter, but you really can do amazing things when you take the time.

I used I think 08115 or 08223 3M Panel Adhesive (now unsure of exact number) - they use such for gluing on 1/4 panels and ... verses welding. I went to the local automotive paint store and they had a sample chart of all the 3M products. I chose product as it dried hard, dried glass black, was sand-able (turns out polish-able as well - allowed me to buff back to gloss black), quick set up time, and ... It is a 2 part epoxy adhesive and you apply with a mixer gun. By the way - do not get on your hands - wear gloves (also quite toasty when curing).

Justin, I read somewhere that 80% of the pilots in WWII had never prior to military service ever operated mechanize equipment - an automobile or even farm tractor, so does not surprise me many of the manuals told you how to drive, rules of the road, and .....
