i would try to drop the hanger but the bolt is stripped out and i can't get the 15mm socket onto it it just spins. the edges are rounded off on the nut and bolt head which sucks.

Looks beefy now. Glad that you were able to get it all done today.

"Man, why does that look so off?"

Put them on! On the way home, I used mine on some of the roads on the way to Rt 3, some of them were pitch black and the high beams helped a bit, but the 100 watt lights were like night and day.

For the gap guards, goto home depot and I think people use edging for flooring? Search around on here and you'll find out for sure. Beats whatever price they charge for the real GG's, and you get them right away, haha.
