TRD Horn Button

I just got the TRD Horn Button from KARacing, and it came with no instructions. It looks like an easy install, but i don't want to mess anything up trying to get this into the steering wheel. Has anyone installed yet, and if so do you have any pics?
Thanks.

that's an old pic, but the best one I have at the present... a lot of interior and exterior work has been done since then. Updated interior pics will be posted shortly - thumbsup

So how did you install it? Did you just remove that black outlining circular piece from the sterring wheel, then just swap the toyota button for the TRD?

you have two options...

1 - stick it directly on top of the toyota emblem

2 - (my choice) carefully remove the black toyota emblem with a flathead screwdriver and replace it with the new TRD one


... the second option looks better since the TRD emblem will sit flush and not be sticking up slightly around the edges

Here is a little guide for those who haven't put it on yet.

1st you have to peel the emblem off the original TRD horn button like this:

2nd you go to the car and like Sultan said, carefully take off the old emblem.

I used two small pick tools to get it of.

This is what the old emblem looks like. It's just a thin piece of metal.

Sorry for the flash but you get the idea. It only took about 10 minutes to do.

Alittle on the expensive side for such a small thing but it is worth it in the looks! thumbsup
