I purchased a '66 XL steering wheel in excellent condition. Supposed to be NOS. It came with the fancy insert not yet glued or attached in its channel. My plan is to paint the wheel in red urethane to match the car then clear coat (I attached an example of what I'm after). The insert is quite a bit smaller in diameter than the channel it goes in (pictures attached). Does anyone have any experience with this? It's pretty flexible but I'm not sure how much it will stretch. Also, I'm not sure what I should glue it with? Finally, should I glue it in after it is painted? Normally, I wouldn't think of glue on top of paint but this insert is somewhat transparent and I'm not sure how the blue coming through the insert next to the red will look.
