Default Correct Steering Wheel Colors For 40 Wagon

Does anybody know the correct steering wheel colors for the 40 Deluxe wagon? I need to restore mine to original. The center color is brown but the rim is a dark color with a lighter color underneath that is close to the Rose color on the dash. The exterior color is Yosemite green. Thanks!

The attached photograph will show you how the wheel should be painted. The two colors should match your dash colors.
I have the formula's that I use and believe them to be quite accurate. However, if you are attempting to match your dash, you'll probably be best served to have those colors professionally matched.

Thanks Mike. I kinda thought that but wasn't sure. I have Drake's rattle cans paint for the dash. Guess I can use them on the wheel too after priming.
