Default Steering Wheel Badge.

So I have been reading up on replacing my steering wheel badge as it is dented and is a complete eyesore. The dent didn't seem bad originally, so I tried to start prying out the emblem. Well, it started coming out very nicely, then the flat head broke lose and scratched it. DOH!!! So I kept trying as nicely as I could to finish the job, and did it again. Eventually I got it out, but because it is POS aluminum, the dent won't "pop" out, it's literally bent. I have been looking around to get some wheel center cap inlays for the spot, but instead I got a hold of third shift studios, and the guy there is going to make me up a replacement. It's going to be $35, so its a little pricey, but it should solve everyone's problems for finding a replacement if you dent yours. They are making me up one of the adhesive polyurethane deals, so it will stick right on there, and if in event the airbag goes off, it won't be a sharp piece of aluminum possibly coming off at me. I will get some pics when I get it, I just contacted him last night and he already sent me a file to print out and test the fitment. So hopefully it is in sometime next week. Just figured I would let ya guys know!

I would love a black SS for my wheel, it'll be the only white ss on my car after I get my door ones doctor'd up with the overlays.

Thanks for the heads up about this Third Shift store, JW. Looks like I'll be able to get some sweet stuff from them. A little pricey, but good stuff should be.
Gotta get one of those engine plaques done up.

NAIOA.com has them. I got mine from there. Just click on there "store" link at the top of the page.

Don't mind the bubbles in the pic. I was impatient when I put it on and took the pic. I smoothed them out with a cc and it lays flat now.
