I've been attempting to repair a steering wheel for a long time now. I had around 6 or 7 but they were all cracked. After a couple tries that didn't work I did a hand stitched padded leather cover for my car's wheel. The problems were selecting a filling compound with a good thermal expansion compared to the original plastic, it also had to be workable but not harder or softer than the original. How to redo the wood grain was another challenge and color matching as well as compatibility of products was an issue. After two botched attempts and 2 years of figuring it all out I came to the conclusion it's easy now. Total cost not including the 2 wheels I trashed is around 20 bucks.
