For all those interested in modifying their interior like I am, attached is a video of the airbag deployment in crash testing. I will be wrapping my dashboard in Ultrasuede. The most important consideration is the impact on the passenger airbag deployment. As you can see, the breakaway part of the dash is hidden in appearance on our vehicle and the visible breakaway point is on the underside of the dash. If one were to simply wrap the entire dash in a new material, there would be no way for the airbag to deploy properly. Bad news. There are ways to accommodate for this without impacting the integrity of the breakaway point. I will workup a DIY for this when I do mine (claiming no responsibility should anyone attempt on their own). I just wanted to post this ahead of time in the event anyone was planning to wrap their dash with any material. Enjoy and modify responsibly!
