New "platinum" mods

some mods i did today...

2001-2003 airbag
2002 explorer sport radio, just used the face on mine because i liked my radio better
2002 explorer hvac panel, had to just use the face because the explorer had a manual blend door

im pretty happy, i like it alot, the cluster has been done for quite some time but i think the radio and hvac help it

Looking good Justin. Why not use a explorer steering wheel with the radio controls?

I was going to do an expo limited wheel....til I realized it was the same wheel as in my parents continental and I hate that steering wheel. Uncomfortable. More unconfortable than 04+ ranger wheels.

no wheel is more uncomfortable than an 04+ ranger, esp with the bent up multifunction switch, steering wheels are meant to be round not square

Would you be surprised if I said I've gotten used to it? lol. I really really don't like the cruise buttons on them 04+ wheels though...but I'm not yet used to those. First and only time I've used it was at night at like 70 mph. lol.
