I didn't use the factory harware myself. Basically, it is exactly the same as the article, but you just need to get your hands up and behind the area of the body behind the bumper to hold a lock-nut while you bolt the valance on. It's a tight fit.

What I just said will make sense when you get started on it.

I hope you have small hands. I am cursed with big, manly hands.

Campeck, thanks alot for redoing the thread!

Tifo, what size hardware did you use...just stuff from the local hardware store i guess?

This and a short shifter are the last things to do on my list. After that im out of ideas except for more indepth suspension work. Did you guys have these resprayed before installing...about how much would it cost (i know the price depends on the body shop, but i want to get a ballpark idea). I doubt i have enough money to do this until the spring probably.

Thanks again to both of you for the help.

I think those rear valences look nice on these cars, makes them look more completed. Good job. Have fun.

What size bolt is the long one that holds up the center of the valence? Mine's missing.

Techno DUck, You can spray the valence yourself using custom mixed spray cans from PaintScratch.com along with their clearcoat. That's what I am planning on doing if I ever get my lazy *** around to it! I have the valence and the paint, but haven't gone to get the nuts and bolts and marked the spots. I'll get to it and post pix when I do.

I can't recall the size, it was nothing special. I remember I just measured the holes and calculated the length of bolt that I needed, and went to lowes to pick up the bolts, nuts, and lock-washers. Wish I could be more helpful there...............sorry!
