Does anybody know how far the inside of the A-Pillar can be expected to move when the side airbags deploy?

I am interested in only the part of the A-pillar cover that goes from the bottom of the windshield (closest to firewall) to the headliner (where the visors are).

I'm installing my sunshield, and it attaches to the windshield glass. I'm thinking of leaving 1/4" to 1/2". Does anybody know how far the trim will move (only along the length of the windshield) on a typical car with side airbags?

Thanks in advance!

** UPDATE **

I installed it so that the retractor units are about a half-inch away from the A-pillar trim.

The sunshade is fairly flexible, so I'm pretty sure that if the airbag blows, the sunshade won't impede movement...nor do I think the sunshade or any of it's pieces/parts will be likely to fly off the windshield and become a dangerous projectile.

See my post in the "general" forum for a link to my Yahoo photo album on this project.
