Just bought a StreetKa and I love it but the silver paint on the steering wheel is coming off - what can I use to paint over this?

Thanks

If you mean the silver paint on the spokes this is quite common on all Fords.

The parts do actually come off-there is a seam at the back which you can open up then re-spray them with any silver paint.

Or if you don't fancy that you can mask them off and re-spray. Or cover them over with sticky back plastic etc. (make a paper pattern first)

Hi Sandycat,

Do the plastic parts come off easily or are they likely to snap if i try to ease them apart? They seem to be attached together very well.

thanks

Sorry for the delay.

I have not taken them off myself but someone did do it on a Mondeo by prizing the seam at the back apart and easing it off the spoke.

It worked and he was very pleased with the result. It should work the same with the Ka but obviously I cannot guarantee it won't break. If in doubt use lots of paper with masking tape and spray in situ.
