    Ok ladies the moment you have beeb waiting for. The dirtiest of all mikes has some pictures to share. It was dark out but tomorrow I will get better pictures. For the record it took me about 2 1/2 hours to cut the bump stop plates out and install the brackets. In the directions it says to cut a x on the rivets with a splitter disk. I didnt have to do that, I just use the air hammer with a chisel on it and cut the rivets of with that. Then used a pry bar to pop off thwle bump stop strike pad. After that I used the cut off wheel to cut down the excess of a rivet sticking out from the frame. From there I put the bumch bit on the air hammer and punched out the rivets. It went a lot easier than I was thinking it would. Well here are some ok pics for you guys [​IMG][​IMG]

    I have never done it before. But I thought it was going to be a lot harder and it wasnt it was just time consuming. If you have a quality air hammer and quality bits for it and a good compressor you will be fine. Don't forget ear plugs
