What im concerned about is that ive never removed the air bag, so does the top cover seperate from the bag so you can spray it or is it a one big item?

Dont really wanna be spraying it with the airbag facing me if you know what i mean.

Its one big item.

Ive sprayed mine and its turned out pretty good.

Just read the Doco's on the site and be gentle when handling the airbag.

you shouldnt have a problem.
