xecutionr thanks for this write up! just installed mine today this way and i must add that if you have some sort of punch that you can hammer after you drill some, it creates a pin hole for you to drill through, made things HELL alot easier lol did it by myself btw, that is what took so long haha

Wagamos Same thing I did! I was gonna do a write up but I didnt take enough pics during the install. I used a hole saw to cut my hole in the carpet, I agree that an x would have looked crappy.

I put some rtv between the washer and the car to prevent leaking.

water doesn't get in since the bolt goes through there, i just sprayed some of that undercoating stuff you can get from an automotive store in the shaky shaky cans.

JJEHUD you could go to a plumbing supply house and get some clic-clamps. you can open them up with a flat-blade screwdriver. i use them alot at work...
