I've been hit by my airbags, TWICE. Both times, the airbag hit me, and not the rubber steering whel cover.
I see no harm in it.....
Yes, but if you have something pasted on the cover what happens to it?
No way it stays attached to the cover.
Best case, it flies off somewhere in the vehicle.
Worst case it flies off and strikes you since you are less than 2 feet from the wheel when the bag deploys.
It is just not a good idea. If it did not hit you in the face, chances are it will cut or catch your arm.
Why mess with a safety device or place anything over it?
There are hundreds of places to put decorative emblems. I don't think the air bag cover should be one of them.
But hey, that's my opinion - and we all know what opinions are like.
