Alright, alright, jeez, I'll get it mounted up this weekend when I get tired of packing

I don't have a dremel to cut the finger holes toighten the nuts... Angle grinder? or is there something better?

Today I: Painted my headlight inserts black, still need to sand and re-clear the lenses.



retrofitted my battery cover to work with my strut tower bar

before (don't mind the tapped up headlights):



After:






Wing still isn't installed, I am still freaked out about drilling holes in my exterior, I guess I don't have the confidence in myself to drill them exactly right. Any suggestions (detailed please) on how to make a template or some other means of positioning the holes correctly? If I can get some help I will do it tomorrow.

A center-punch would help in keeping the drill on target. Make a small indent at the center of each hole you want to drill and it'll help guide the bit.

I mean marking where the holes are going, so I don't end up with an off center/crooked wing.
