    Trust me when I say, an airbag lamp on doesn't mean the passenger side won't go off hehe. I ate a faceful with one of our field car Sentra's. Woops!

      thanks for the pic. i always thought the system was disabled if the light was flashing too. just from what i've read on the interwebz.. haven't been lucky enough to experience it first hand

          Yup, we all felt the same way. We were bombing around the woods with a b13 and all of a sudden we nosed the thing into an embankment and the bag blew off in my face. I was wearing a dirtbike helmet but still couldnt' breath from all of the dust that came out...talk about crappy!

            The air bag doesn't support the dash itself.

            Good place for my ECU.
            I forgot about that. I took the cover plate out of my car when I was doing the dash cause it weights about 11,000,000 lbs. replaced with alu sheet.

              Sexy!
              What makes up all the weight? Is there a steel insert or something?

                Yeah.. the cover is a steel plate with about 14 little screws holding it to another steel plate. all of that screws to the dash (and maybe airbag- I forget now) and is covered in padded vinyl.

                It was about 2-3lbs total when I pulled it off. the alu is about 2-3 ounces.
