Need help IDing 14" steering wheel

This 14 inch wheel came on my 63 Comet when I bought it 2 years ago. The half wrap is peeling and the 3 phillips head screws that hold it on the adapter have damaged heads. I want to buy a new half wrap and the 3 screw but don't know who made the wheel. The 3 screws have a thread I don't recognize. ...

Re: reattaching exterior moulding strips 63 Comet

Here are some pictures of a clip & cover/shield that I removed from the car. Don't know if these were stock or aftermarket. I don't see them listed for sale anywhere on the net.

Re: reattaching exterior moulding strips 63 Comet

I think I found my problem. There was a lot of dirt inside the moulding under the lips keeping the clip from snapping in. They seem to snap in a lot better after cleaning with a pick. Making the rubber backing out of old rim liner I found.

reattaching exterior moulding strips 63 Comet

Can't get the moulding to snap over the clips in the square holes. I have tried candle wax on the clips but no help. If I do the clips on the bench they snap right in.
Any secrets to snapping them on
