This is Ericís last teak wheel. My wife bought it from him to give to me as a Christmas present a couple of years back. I know itís not correct for a Ď67 but I donít care. Like you, I get a lot of nice comments about it. The difference in the feel between the original plastic wheel and the wood on this wheel is huge.

And the look is just as great too! I bought an original for 4 figures years ago from the expert, no regrets at all.

I refinished mine with a spar poly semi gloss but I am not sure if correct or should be gloss finish
