yeah, I know, I need to try to take some pics, but I didn't think about it when I was doing the install, I guess I can take some pics of everything outside of the car to show where the bolts are, and pics of the delete once installed

10mm open-ended wrench or preferably a ratcheting wrench, trust me, it is possible, just make sure your cover is far enough out of the way and push the airbag down a little to reach the nuts, and I know this sounds stupid, but make sure you're spinning the nuts the right direction

i was rear-ended a few years back in my 95 SHO, the roads were icey and it caused me to rear-end the person in front of me. we were only doing about 25-30 mph. the airbags deployed and crushed the left side of my face, which led to reconstructive surgery. i now have a titanium plate, and bone shave from my pelvis, holding my face together. i almost lost me left eye, and had to learn how to walk again after the hip surgery. not the most enjoyable experience.

i can see both sides of this safety debate. airbags keep you from eating the steering wheel in many cases, they can also do a lot of unnecessary damage. i am a relatively new member, but damn. some people really seem to love slamming fellow members and arguing to no end. i say leave your comment/constructive criticism and move on.

btw, nice write-up!
