Good luck with the car.
That looks wet? Lol it was nighttime in the work lot and they lack proper lighting on the BLACKTOP exit strip. I slid entering the last corner. I wasn't going but 20-25 mph, simply couldn't stop.

I was thinking that that would be a viable option. But to replace the airbags would still be incredibly expensive =\. And I'm not entirely sure I'd want to trust my life to my own DIY airbag repacking. Lol not sure how safe of a DIY that is.
