custom steering wheel trim and emblem completed

Hey so as promised, I'm posting a pic of my steering wheel trim and emblem. The trim was peeling and looked terrible while the emblem was deformed and bent (did previous owner punch it? Haha)

I used gloss black vinyl wrap.

Let me know what you guys think!

Looks good bud. Is it easy to remove the trim and replace it? (Just wondering if you need to disconnect battery bc of airbag)

Hmm my emblem is deformed and bent as well, is the emblem you have on now a replacement (I didn't think the original emblem could come off) or is it an overlay?

Mine was deformed as well. I got a sticky emblem off of ebay and just put it on top of the old one. It works great and you can't even tell the old emblem is underneath
