Robert W. Arnold. Canadian Viscount Researcher based in Winnipeg shares this information -

I received a pair of Viscount Control wheels, Keith Olson had given to me last fall, in a rather tattered shape.

I now include a picture that shows the First Officer's control wheel after repairs, cleaned up and repainted to look like new. This includes the Vickers Armstrongs logo that's at the centre of the wheel, this too had to be redone. The pilot's wheel is in rougher shape and will take much more work to bring back to good condition.

I also included a before and after of the rather damaged instrument panel from TCA Viscount, Fin # 649 Registration CF-TIE.
