    Hey just wanted to make sure you got my email.?

    Basically this bolt is just a tough one to get in. The best way to do it is with your hand and squeeze it into the space... If not use a wrench or socket to put the nut on the end of the bolt. You may have to be a little creative!

    If you got my email you got a more detailed response so hopefully you got it all figured out. Let me know if you have any further questions!

    I have seen where people weld or glue a coat hanger to one side and then you can bend it to the right shape to get it in.

    I've used a regular wrench and taped the nut to it for situations like this in the past. Once it's tight just pull the wrench out ripping the tape. Lesson learned, don't use overly strong duct tape for this, use something that breaks away fairly easily otherwise you can't get the wrench back out :eek:

    Update: Previously I did not see the frame boxed section ending about a foot aft of the mounting point. :eek: With the brake line bracket temporarily moved out of the way, I could easily get my hand inside to install the nut.

    The slider looks good installed :):

    BTW, the finish is Duplicolor Bed Armor. I did four coats. Each slider needed about 1.5 cans.
