The wooden steering wheel is my favorite of the interior of the car. As such I would like to maintain the nice glossy look. What products and/or methods can I employ to keep it in good shape for years?

It will Interesting to see what people say. I think the steering wheels or coated with lacquer. Lacquer being paint so does wear out at some point. So the issue is how to protect. I think the first thing I would do is don’t wear rings on your fingers the scratch the lacquer or wear gloves.

Changing my steering wheel to a wood Nardi was the best modification I did on my car.

My 84's Owner's Manual says to clean the wood with gasoline - see the Upholstery paragraph - but I wouldn't dare. A damp cloth is all it's ever needed. 75,000 miles.

I would have found that impossible to believe if you had not posted the page from the manual.
Incredible!
I would not do that for anything. Even if it worked, it would stink!

of course it would stink, Greg. That way you won't notice the smell of fumes from the trunk of the clogged vapor canister.

i restored my Personal wheel and used epifanes. That stuff is like glue so not much is needed unless you drive it a lot. But, the instructions say to do a light sanding with a light coat every year or so. Not sure if that is relevant but it's all i got.

I refinished my Helebore with basic materials & rattle can on a lazy-susan.

You know, my car stank like gasoline for almost ten years until I discovered the fuel pressure was several psi too high.
