It's pretty easy, there are three torque screws on the backside of your wheel to get the cover off.

Besides tonight, they're working on a meet for this Sunday. Once it's confirmed, I'll post it here. Let me know if you want matte black grilles or some wheels. My garage is full of stuff I've been trying to get rid of.

Have any of you done audio upgrades in your cars? Just bought some speakers and subs (plus wiring harness from Technic) from member. Seems easy to do, just didn't know for sure

So no need to remove the whole steering wheel to get the trim off? Isn't there like 2 or 3 locations where you have to stick a flat head in to pop the airbag off?

fantastic. I don't have the bible. Got a link to where it may be available?

I can't wait to get it all together, get it detailed... and ROLL OUT!

To get just that trim off, that's all you have to do is remove those screws. No need to remove the airbag and wheel unless you're updating the wheel.

Sweet, don't forget to post pictures. What material or color are you going to wrap it? Thinking of doing my whole interior in suede or alcantara .
