Re: Au Fairmont Grey Airbag

are you talking about the airbag cover pad/horn...or airbag itself??
i assume the cover, i don't think you'll care what colour the airbag is if you have a crash!!

Re: Au Fairmont Grey Airbag

yeah...i have the same situation, i just fitted a black leather XR8 wheel, i actually don't think its that bad. Not worth messing around with paints.
But...i haven't seen a Momo one on.

Re: Au Fairmont Grey Airbag

with the new steering wheel there should be a black plastic backing plate, where the indicator and controls stick out of. Unscrew it and replace it with your existing one, that way the pad matches the backing plate, and the only thing black is the wheel itself.

Re: Au Fairmont Grey Airbag

the vinyl spray wont need an adhesion promoter
in fact it would probably stop it from doing its job, the viyl spray is a dye which needs to soak(sp?) into the vinyl, the promoter would stop it from doing this

i sprayed my centre hub black on my old car and there were no dramas

Re: Au Fairmont Grey Airbag

No need to use an adhesive promoter as the vinyl spray is a dye.

Falkeen did this on his AU1 Futura - I believe it worked well.

Re: Au Fairmont Grey Airbag

Well, I think the grey airbag would be much better than a black airbag....
Like, if you have an accident and everything goes black !
Could be a bit of a worry !!

But, if it all goes grey you would not have the frighteners quite so bad :(

Come to think of it, the best colour would be ROSE !!

Then if you had a stack.... all would be rosie :)
