Allright, so here it is as promised.
Step 1: If you ordered your guards unpainted, you're going to want to clean them (either a clean rag and ether or some MEK or paint thinner) and then paint 'em. When painting, start with a tack coat (light coat) and then shoot your regular coats with a 15 min wait time between coats. I start inside, to bottom, then to the outside. Don't spray too heavy, you don't want runs.
Step 2: Cean your rockers, side and bottom (this will be the last time you can clean them without something in the way) and get your floor jack and spacer placed to hold the rocker in place when you put it on for fit up. The blanket makes it a little more comfortable.
Step 3: Do your test fit up, position the rocker where you want it and use the jack to hold it in place. I center punched the location for all the holes and did it on both sides so when I went to drill it, I could drill all my holes without stopping.
Step 4: Drill all your holes (there's six on the bottom too), and don't forget the other side.
Step 5: Put the rockers back on, I siliconed around all the holesand on the side of the rocker to seall it from water. You'll run the top bead when your done tightening them up. Leave the bolts loose so you can slip the underside bolts in. Put you washers and nuts on the inside (Leave them loose!), and it will hold it in place. Sorry, missed this pic.
Step 6: Put your "vise" plates on the inside and slide the special torx nuts through your holes. Hand thread the bolts into the nuts and get ready to tighten all your hardware up.
Step 7: The only hex bolts are the recessed ones at the rear of the rocker. I was slighted pissed when I opened the hardware pack and I was missing these bolts! I had to go to ACE and pic some up.
Step 8: Tighten everything. Start with the underside bolts and then go to the sides. Tighten from the inside. Don't use the allen wrench, use your ratchet. Don't over-tighten, I snapped the head off one of the stainless bolts, but they did include and extra, just in case.
Step 9: Run your top bead of silicone (I used some masking tape along the edge of the guard and about a 1/4 inch above it to get a clean bead). Stand back and admire your work!
