Hi, I have a 1981 Alfetta GTV 2.0 with wood effect steering wheel. It is starting to flake, one patch has already gone. There is another patch nearby that has lifted but not flaked off yet!

I was thinking of standing the patch where it is flaking , then lightly sand the entire wheel and then spaying with a clear coat rattle can.
What do you recommend? What type of clear coat? Please see the picture.
Thanks

I attempted what you're proposing and it didn't work. At all. The clear became tacky and gross after only a few weeks, and it never looked right. I ended up replacing the wheel with a MOMO Monte Carlo, and I think it looks perfect. Also replaced the shift knob and boot with real leather bits too.
