Okay. So the still intact airbag is out and sitting on the floor in the corner out of harms way. Now what? Can these be sold? If so where, how and estimated price? If not what is the best or recommended way to dispose of it. It's from a 91.

No, they go off rather impressively. Pretty big charge in those things. Make you think twice about having an explosive sitting in front of you. If you set it off, do be careful.

When I built my DP Spyder, I donated both of my airbags to the fire dept for their "mock prom" days that they show "accident scenes" in front of the high school kids. I guess they popped a watermelon to show them why you need a seat belt along with the airbag.
That said, since the fire dept is a non profit organization...Tax Deduction!!!

Wow prices have come down. I built my SM a long long time ago and sold both bags from my '95 on ebay for $800. Legally you can't ship them without special permits, but I had several from various cars and I wrapped them in bubble wrap. Literally 30-40 feet of bubble wrap and packing tape in layers so if it went off it wasn't going to do much damage.
Thanks for the info guys. Tracy, the fire department idea sounds like a good one. As for the video, the moment the bag started to explode the electricity in our area shut down. I kid you not. My first thought was what the heck did I do until I realized how quite the house was. Couldn't have timed it better in a movie.
