This focuses on repairing the wood-grained steering wheels offered in 1964-67 Corvettes, which were of similar construction to the Buick wood wheel.  Note the Buick wheels are a lighter shade of brown compared to the Corvette wheels, so you'll need to adjust the paint mix to achieve the best match.

 

If you take on this project, take before and after pictures and let us know how it goes.

 

Good luck!.

Looking good Art!

 

The color of the wheel at the top looks closest to the original.  The rest of the wheel looks a bit darker than it should be, but fairly close.

 

Post a pic of the finished product, and once it's installed in your car.
