It's against state law to sell airbags in our yards.

I’ve got a few in my shed that I don’t know how to dispose of.

Speaking of eBay, a tan drivers side door panel finally popped up for sale, so I grabbed it. My drivers side is in poor shape due to failing glue, dinged up and dirty “pleather” and one shattered fastener anchor/backing (under the “airbag” plug.

Assuming it’s in better shape, or can be repaired and cleaned well enough, I think I’ll swap it with my OE panel, which will then become a project at some point. I’d like to strip it of the non-leather covering and then recover it in new leather, or sensetec, etc. keeping my eyes open for a right front panel to show up on eBay.

That never gets old. Pee your pants funny. Unless you didn’t know it was coming and you were launched into the drop ceiling!

I repaired my drivers door after the glue failed from the top plastic that 'hangs' the rest of the door panel. I used Loctite (I think) compound for plastic and fiberglass. I used the whole tube, too. Damn thing isn't going anywhere.
