brackets are all predilled. you will need a 1/2" and a 3/8" drill bit though. youll need to drill one hole in the lower control arm which will be marked by the lower bracket already for you. and youll also need to drill two 1/2" holes in the shock tower to bolt the upper brackets to. again, both very easy. youll bolt the lower one on there in place by the existing bolt holes, then drill the one hole. then for the upper, youll bolt it through the top, then drill then holes through the back. piece of cake

gotta get to the ups store and get some shipped out. yall should start seeing some tracking numbers here pretty soon.

nah, they will actually look a little bit better than that one. my last flap disc was pretty worn out so i couldnt really clean it up very good. took the wire wheel to it to get all the gunk off it so i could snap a few pics.

Actually thinking bare metal, no paint.

I was planning to use a metal etching primer from DuPont then paint.

Bare metal for me.
