    • Before you remove the airbag, disconnect the battery completely for 24hrs beforehand.

      You will likely need a security bit to undo the two screws which hold the airbag in. If you don’t have a security bit, file a small notch out the centre of a flathead screwdriver or flathead bit, works too.

      A leather and woodgrain LTD steering wheel would be nice, much cheaper than a Momo generally and would suit your interior much better IMO.

      See my pic a bit earlier of my AU interior - that’s a woodgrain LTD wheel I had Re-trimmed to match my interior colour. Much nicer than the full leather wheel I reckon and still cost me less than a Momo.

    • yes i worked that out from looking at some EL engine bay pics,will any ef el belt cover fit it ? ever since getting my first e series the eb a few weeks ago i have not even started my crossy xf,so in the morning im taking it down to the local wrecking yard to fill the back with e series parts to fix ,i found another set of seats thisafo there,also cappa trim ,an air box,tail light and front right indicator,im hoping to find a steering wheel as this one is ripped but the centre is ok,what about the airbag when you take the wheel off ? what is the process of taking this steering wheel off ?
    • I have heard excellent feedback about the Chinese dynamat “jingping” or something it was called. Yep third of the price and the guy I was talking to reckoned it was awesome to reduce road noise, made the doors feel much more solid and he reckoned there was noticeable thermal insulative improvement also.

      I’ve used the adhesive backed stuff made for A/C droppers myself (for my firewall, internally). Hoping it works well (sounds like it should).

      But as for oil canning panels, I got nothing... I’ll sit back and watch (read).

    • cool, now i remember fixing hail dents on My XE ghia roof that someone else bogged, it was oil canning when sanded and left noticeable dips by the previous repair.. (i did a better job, couldn't notice it at all.)
       
    • It's possible but it's also possible to make a visible distortion on the outside with heat differentials when you double layer things like the extra aluminium or steel. Might get away with a soft windscreen sealant to hold it in place but also move a bit with the panel. Depends why it's canning as to what will fix it. Deadener type materials will always help because they slow the panels ability to vibrate but if you're getting the bink-bonk when you press lightly on the panel then the panel probably needs fixing first.
    • I’ll ask my Dad where he got those magnets from, they’re bloody awesome.

      There’ two small ones and two big ones and both have strong magnets on the front and back and they have positionable hinged “legs” so you can hold stuff at odd angles or on two different planes which has been super handy.

    • Magnets you say? I can always use more tools 🤤
    • but would something like it stop oil canning?   like sikaflex a strip of aluminium behind it for eg. or will that cause issues with heat expansion.. needs a strip of steel glued on?
    • Yeah anything that adds mass to the panels usually helps cut the vibration. So things like raptor, stone guard, body deadener, even cavity wax to an extent can help. The Chinese dynamat was supposed to be better than the real thing and about a third the price. I have a big bag of self adhesive insulation offcuts that Barry gave me. It's the stuff he uses inside the aircon ducts he makes to cut noise and temperature change. Couldn't use it anywhere that would get wet because it would suck it up like carpet but inside doors, boot, firewall under carpet etc would help with noise suppression.
