steering wheel restoration?

I either need a new steering wheel or need to do some restoration on mine.  So, need some information: 

Is there a company or person who is doing this kind of work?

Or, how can I do it myself?

Or, It looks like Crown and Omix are the only ones making new...is one better than the other?  Is there another new Steering wheel supplier that you know of who makes a great wheel? 

Mine has been disintegrating in my hands for years and it is time I do something about it.  Input is much appreciated!

Unless you're insistent on keeping the original wheel, I would recommend getting a new one.  I purchased mine from QTM Parts.

It's the best price I found and the quality is good.  It looks just like the originals.  Shipping...Fast.

If you want to try to fix yours, there are a couple threads I've seen where guys use an epoxy filler to fix cracks, then they smooth them out and paint them.

Oh, This guy also has the green wheels for the M38...

Thanks a lot, Tim.  Those QTM wheels are made by crown and from what I can tell, the Crown ones are the way to go.  I think I'll order one up.
