    Installation Instructions
    1. You will need a few tools to install your kit. A Standard socket set and wrenches, a set of standard alien wrenches, a utility knife, anti - seize compound, a electric drill, a new sharp 9/32 drill bit, rubber tipped clamps, lacquer thinner, window cleaner, black permanent pen and soft clean cotton baby diaper for cleaning your kit.
    2. Carefully remove all your parts from the box
    3. Find your fastener bag, remove all fasteners and put a small amount of anti - seize compound on the stainless steel threads. THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT STEP IT HELPS TO PREVENT STRIPPING OF THE THREADS.
    4. Remove your old hood bumpers
    5. Carefully unbolt the top row of bolts holding the fender lip to the top of the engine compartment. Start with the drivers side.
    6. Carefully remove your sheet metal parts from the bubble rap, do not cut into your sheet metal parts. Leave the white plastic on the sheet metal until ready to install.
    7. Find the piece marked DRIVERS SIDE, carefully lay this piece on the engine compartment drivers side with the white plastic up, visually lining up with the fender holes and hood bumper openings. This kit is designed off of cars that have not been wrecked in the front, if your car has had front end damage or after market fenders you may need to oblong the holes in the kit to make it work. For more serious problems you can call the phone number at the end of the instructions.
    8. Once you see that the fender holes and the hood bumper slots line up close, carefully remove the white plastic and lay the polished sheet metal in place, put together the 5/16 button head alien fasteners and a new 7/8 stainless fender washers, insert into the holes of the sheet metal piece and then thread into the car, Don't tighten yet, just loose. NEVER LAY TOOLS ON YOUR NEW SHEET METAL KIT, DOING SO WILL SCRATCH YOUR NEW KIT.
    9. For the passenger side, repeat steps 7 and 8 with the sheet metal marked passenger side.
    10. The third piece is the center strip that goes across the radiator support. NOTE: Do not remove the center strip white plastic until later. In order to get the center strip piece to line up the best, you need to slightly bend the strip to conform to the saddle shape that is in your radiator support brace. This piece will bend very easily, so be careful, only slight bends are needed to mimic the shape of the radiator support brace. BE CAREFUL WORKING ON THIS CENTER STRIP AREA BECAUSE YOU HAVE THE POLISHED DRIVERS SIDE PIECE AND POLISHED PASSENGER SIDE EXPOSED. YOU MIGHT WANT TO COVER THEM WITH SOMETHING CLEAN AND SOFT.
    11. Lay the center strip piece that you just bent to shape on top of the of your radiator support brace, clamp in place(rubber tipped clamps work the best to prevent the clamp from cutting through the white protective plastic and scratching the metal). Make sure the center strip is centered evenly between the drivers side polished piece and the passenger side polished piece.
    12. Once you have clamped the center strip piece where you want it, use it as a template for marking the holes on the radiator support with a permanent pen.
    13. Carefully remove the clamps and the center strip sheet metal and drill the marked hole areas through the radiator support with the 9/32 drill bit BE CAREFUL NOT TO DAMAGE YOUR RADIATOR. After the holes are drilled carefully remove the white protective plastic from the center strip and insert the 1A -20 x 3A button head bolts through the center strip sheet metal and then through the radiator support holes that you drilled. Then thread on the W nuts underneath. Tighten snug.
    14. Now snug up the 5/16" button head fasteners on the drivers side and passenger side at this time, make sure the hood bumper slots line up with the kits. The kit has larger openings for the hood bumpers to go through.
    15. HOOD BUMPERS: You will have to trim the bottom of the hood bumpers to compensate for the thickness of the dress up kit sheet metal.
    16. CLEANING: Window cleaner is usually the best way to clean unwanted fingerprints from your stainless. Take great care of your kit and use only soft clean cotton cloths or silk cloths to clean your kit. NEVER SET TOOLS ON YOUR KIT. ONCE THE PROTECTIVE WHITE PLASTIC HAS BEEN REMOVED FROM THE SHEET METAL AND IS INSTALLED ON THE CAR, YOU MUST USE A COTTON SWAB AND LACQUER THINNER TO REMOVE THE RESIDUE FROM AROUND THE BORDERS. AFTER THIS IS DONE, USE WINDOW CLEANER AND A SOFT CLEAN COTTON CLOTH TO REMOVE ANY SMEARS.
