Maybe its just mine, but whenever my hands are wet and drive the truck, my hands get black and sticky (from the bake-lite?). Should I just paint it with some rattle can enamel?

I used a good enamel after repairing some cracks, then put a good cover on it (protects and also fattens the grip).  Topped it off with a high quality spinner knob and have been very pleased.

Fill the cracks? What how did you accomplish that?

There are wheel repair kits out there (I used a POR product on FEF).  You V out the crack, fill it with an epoxy sand down and refinish.

I wouldnt use brakeclean on a steering wheel as a prep.  I think a wax and grease remover would be kinder to the Bakelite.  I unsend epoxy to repair both of mine and then rattle canned w a clear coat. Both are holding up well
