STEP 1: Start by removing the 4 front factory plastic clips that hold the aluminum dust cover in place. Once removed you can then remove the factory dust cover(the dust cover and plastic clips will not be reused on this install.)
STEP 2: Before installing the front shield we highly recommend using the anti-rattle tape provided in this kit.
With the radius of the front shield facing towards the front of the vehicle slip the shield into place aligning the front four holes with the factory clip holes that we removed the plastic clips from in step one.
STEP 3: Locate the 1/4” rivets (the larger of the two included in hardware kit) make sure the front four holes line up properly then using a heavy-duty 1/2” rivet gun insert and install the front 4 rivets into the existing holes.
STEP 4: (NOTE: The Installation of the rear rivets come with spacers to allow for proper clearance. To ensure the best fit with no rattle.use the spacers when securing the rear part of the front shield.)
Once the front four rivets are installed you can then use the predrilled holes in the plate as a guide to drill your holes on the vehicle.
Drill the remaining 3/16” holes. Using the spacers and longer rivets, install and check for clearance around the exhaust.
STEP 5: (NOTE: The Installation of the rear shield rivets are standard length.)
Drill out the 4 holes in the rear shield using the holes as guides. Install the remaining rivets and check for clearance.
