Im looking for a 69 steering colum cover that bolts up on either side of the sterring wheel colum at the bottom of the dash.Black would be nice but any color will do.I can only find ones with one end broke off. Dan

read the MSDS sheet and wear your PPE (personal protecrive equipment) I cant help it, I'm in the Training, Safety and Environmental Dept were I work. Methylene Chloride is what
I used to use to glue plexiglass to plexiglass. Its amazing stuff.
That was a long time ago when I used to work at a sign shop, back then PPE was hold yer breath and squint.

toxic

mmm are you saying avoid skin contact and vapours then? No sheet here just a small bottle from plastics shop.Skull and crossbones on it but thats it. I am using a mere few drops at a time in a bottle with a needle attached. Its what I was supplied with. Thanks for the tip.

Yes 6T9 thats a 70 cover. Use the methylene chloride but don't breathe or get any on you to repair.

Tightening

Chris Just do the metal parts up real tight. With plastic and cork gaskets you really want just a little pressure to keep contact or as you know crrrraaaaaccccckkkkkkkkppppp:( Methylene chloride wear your radiation suit. Catzya
