I had a client ask me a question today and I have no idea how to respond. She suffers occasional migraines and bright light tends to be the trigger. She was asking if there's a way to dull the chrome logo on the steering wheel so it is less likely to reflect sun in her eyes. I drew a blank on ideas.

Anyone got any solutions that would work?

Metal paint? A paint shop that had someone who was good a pinstriping should be able to apply it without making a mess of the steering wheel.

She could carefully scrape the chrome off the plastic logo (will become dull and grey), paint or plastidip will peel sooner or later due to hand oils.

More I think about it, probably mask it really well, then use fine steel wool to dull it.

There's some stuff called Blacken-It. It chemically blackens some metals. Don't know if it works on chrome. It's mostly used by model railroad hobbyists to give a more realistic look to their trains and tracks.

There are articles out there, on how to use it.

Blacken-It, 4 fl. oz.

Peeling off that emblem can sometimes damage the airbag finisher. Fingernail polish or something similar would be the safest/easiest bet for the average DIY'er.

It looks like CA doesn't have a medical tint exemption law...which is surprising since VA actually does.
