Any tips on what I should do a day+ before meeting up? Spray down any particular areas to loosen it up?

Looks like I missed this minor detail in some install threads I've read. This guy just bent the fender slightly as-needed.

So what happens after you get your lift on? Disappear, never hear from you again? I've seen it happen too often...
