    So I'm sitting here thinking about mods to do put on my truck and then I thought about Transformers. So my thought is if it is possible to possibly replace the steering wheel horn cover? If it can, would I be able to put a Transformers logo instead of a Toyota and have a LED wired to my dash light controller under the Transformer logo? Just a thought....

    The emblem you could probably do, I have seen some members switch out the Toyota logo for others. But if it's not an oval it may look a little weird.

    As far as the LED, that might be a little tougher, as it would have to take steering into account. Are you just trying to create a back light for the transformers emblem?
