RAV4 Airbag  

Honorable Member

As you guys know, I picked up a beat up RAV4 airbag. It's from a 2001 so it's the facelift version with the silver ring. I prefer the pre-facelift but both are nice.

The airbag was in good condition, but that silver ring was scuffed up. Paint was gone in sections. Gotta fix that! I removed the cover from the airbag. This is what a steering wheel airbag looks like!

And taped up the areas I didn't want to get paint on.

I actually used Plasti Dip. I figured I might want to change the color at some point, so for now I'm dipping it black.

The end result was surprisingly great! Texture is similar to the surroundings. Not perfect, but great.

Removed my old airbag. The dimpled texture matches an OEM wheel nicely, but with my rewrapped wheel the dimples stick out.

I was using a low CRI LED light to illuminate it so that's why the colors look so different. But I love it! Looks slimmer, more modern, and more sporty than the original. Let me know your thoughts! Direct fit.
