Ford steering wheel emblem...

How hard is it to take the Ford emblem off of the steering wheel? I was wondering how to go about doing this and is it possible to do the paint mod to it? Can it be colored like the Ford emblems on the outside?

I tried it the other day, and to take it out all you have to do is CAREFULLY pry it out it has five tabs holding it in, it is VERY thin aluminum and if not careful you will bend it. You could possibly repaint it, but is has clearcoat over the paint and I didn't want to fool with such a small thin piece of aluminum, so I would say you're best bet it going to be buying/making a new or different one or putting a decal on it, I bent mine all to hell when I took it out so I am going to have to fab a new one up pretty soon.

stick with a vinyl overlay
remember that thing will be flying at your face at hundreds of miles per hour if the air bag deploys

Not quite Neil, I had the airbags deploy on me, remember The "horn" part actually splits right in half from the left to right and goes around the ford emblem. The top half and ford eblem just flip up. If anything I'd say that emblem would probably hit you in the chest if it were to do any flying

I just would not tamper too much with the air bag cover and the emblem is right in the center
anything hard over that, even though it splits, could become a missle in the cab should the bag deploy

I will defer to you John regarding Ranger air bags - you did have the unfortunate experiance
still and all -- chest or face it would hurt to be hit by anything hard flying off the bag cover
