I trying to find a place that can repair a steering for a 58 chevy biscayne that I am restoring. The wheel is cracking along the edges. I can't a reproduction for this steerin g wheel anywhere. The only replacement I am finding is for an Impala. Does anyone know of a place that repairs steering wheels near Pittsburgh PA or know of a place where I can buy a reproduction steering for my car?

THANKS

Can you upload some photos of the wheels cracking along the edges.

I think the steering wheel is made of some kind of fibreglass.
If you want to do it yourself then go to a auto or boating supply shop to get a repair kit.
Grind or sand out the cracks then apply fibreglass cloth with resin to fill the grooves, then sand back to the original shape.

If your not up to DIY, then any auto body or boat repair shop should be able to do it.
