Re: In Final Steps! (Fixing Steering Wheel) *huge mod /w new pics*(+mini game:p)

im actually gonna be clear coating it and today so technically its done.

now its not 100% perfect, ill be taking it out this summer and totally bonding the whole wheel so its all one smooth surface right now its all smooth no cracks or runs but it doesnt look right with some smooth and some with the hammered plastic look, since its starting to snow and always be below -2 ill have to stop most of my days would be wasted n ways since i cant paint in the rain or snow or have it that cold when its trying to dry.(like today its -4 and wet)

Ill have pics up after the clear coat, once this summer comes ill finish smoothing it out it should take less than 1 day to have it all preped and painted i wont have to wait as long when its nice and warm out.

All in all, it will turn out amazing in the summer, it will just be a thin coat of bondo to cover the hammered plastic sand it smooth and paint it.

*if you want to take out ur emblem its totally doable and i found the *right* way to take it out.. (assuming the airbag can be unclipped from the plastic which i know it can) all you have to do is undo the airbag and unclip it from the plastic, the emblem is right there all it is 6 pegs that have been melted so u cant pull them out nicely all you have to do is either cut them so they can fit though the holes or just melt them so they can fit though, than its out, do what u need to do with it and put it back it (prolly better to just put a lil glue around the pegs so it sits back it and wont fall out or re melt the pegs so they wont fall out.)
