Looking for comments and help here.  I found a 59 Imperial that is amazingly complete, and have found most all damaged or missing parts.  One part that seems impossible to get is the steering wheel center portion (see photo).  I am proposing to make a clay one on the chrome frame, then fiberglass it to make a mold, then use the mold to make a foberglass part that can be painted or covered with vinyl.  Has anyone done this or has any helpful suggestions?

 i would think make the padding and simply glue vinyl on it, that vinyl color would be hard to find with the pressed pleats though. I would get a center flat piece and two pleated sides of marine vinyl and make a cover. It would be very close.

This one looks like it was made and hand stitched, and probably pulled over top of a very high density foam cut to shape.
