Great to see this done in DIY fashion!! Props to you, sir.

How long did it take you? I've been considering doing this myself. I'm no certified mechanic but I tear all my toys apart in the garage.

Thanks. Seriously took me 3 days. Starting at 9am and calling it quites around 10:30pm. It takes alot of motivation, cause my back and fingers were kill"n me. Not to mention taking the front bumper off is a b*tch cause of the sharpass plastic. I took my time and made sure I was following the directions to the T.

Nice job. Its a big DIY project and it must feel good to do it all by yourself.
I have been cinsidering to do it myself too (if i finally decide to order the kit), but after your comments about how long it took to finish, i may just take it to my mechanic who i trust .
What was the most difficult part besides removing the front bumper, if you dont mind me asking?

Drilling the hole for the fuel rail bracket. Not sure how the hell someone can drill at an angle and not damage/scratch anything and get that sh*t to sit back over the screw on only a few attempts. Sounds stupid me saying that but it took me about 10 attempts. lol. I had to drill with a small bit to create a pilot hole and then go bigger. It was difficult cause after all that I couldnt get the bracket to sit properly and leaning over the car at that point did a number on my back.
