Hello everyone.
Has anyone added side curtain and seat bolster air bags to a vehicle that was not originally equipped with them?

I have a 2004 Mazda 6 wagon and I recently upgraded my torn cloth manual non-heated seats to power, heated leather out of another 2004 wagon donor car.




Since the seats are equipped with side bolster airbags I decided to grab the side-curtain airbags plus all the labeled trim and sensors.



The donor vehicle had the front airbags deploy after what looks like catching something with the passenger front wheel and shoving it back into the wheel arch.

The SAS will either need to reset or replaced (next time I find an un-wrecked airbag equipped (03-05) vehicle.)
As far as I can tell everything else should be plug and play. Once it is all in the onboard diagnostic should tell me the rest.
Does this sound reasonable?

What are peoples thoughts.

Airbag controller (SAS) for a 2004 6s wagon that is not equipped with side-curtain airbags (GM9E-57-K30). None of the yellow plugs below the seats (passenger and driver) are connected to anything. I believe once this unit has logged an airbag deployment it needs to be replaced (not verified).

Yellow plugs under the seats are used as are the side impact sensors located at the bottom of the B-pillars just below and forward of the front occupant seat belt mechanisms.
