    I dont think you are going to get very far on this quest. These vehicles were designed to the safety standards of the day, and to fit an airbag you would need to start from the drawingboard and redesign the whole vehicle. Air bags are just one feature of a modern safety system and just adding one to an existing design is not going to increase the safety of the vehicle.

    Hey Troy. Hope you've got deep pockets or crazy skills. Not too many people have achieved rear airbag suspension on a bay. There are quite a few companies in the states and Europe offering an airbag front beam. Off the shelf but still need a tonne of modifications to make them fit.

    I know a guy in called Mycha in Holland who has fully bagged his early bay. It has literally taken him years and cost him big $$ to get it set up right. The mods he has made to achieve it are painfull. Here's his build thread. Most the bagging work is in the last few pages. http://forum.earlybay.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=21827&hilit=mycha&start=500

    If you read through that and stll want to do it you're a brave man. Good luck with it.
