Took a trip yesterday and I was noticing a LOT of sunlight glare off the emblem in the middle of the steering wheel. That got me thinking..

What do you guys think of the possibility of Plasti-dipping the steering wheel emblem? How difficult would it be to remove the front of the steering wheel and not have the air bags blow up in my face? :blush 1: Just mainly curious.

Never bothered me, but maybe you could try gently pryimg it out as it probably just clips on

Never had this problem. Maybe the way you put your hands on the steering wheel would block the sun or get windows tinted.

Windows are already tinted. I believe 35%.. maybe less. I don't have a meter to check, it's factory tint all around.
Definitely not true. I got 35% put on, and the meter reads 34%. If the factory tinted 35, and I put on 35 it would be much much less.

I didn't know Mazda factory tinted the windows darker than 70%. Maybe your dealer did it?

Interesting... Looks like that is 35% all around, yet it looks like Virginia's tint laws say only 50% is allowed in the front. I'm surprised dealers go against the tint laws.

well, i dunno what it is, like I said. May be 50% all around. (I get the percentages mixed up..)

Definitely came from the dealer at least like this. Sittin' on the lot waiting for me as you see her.. :)
