    guys...how long will it take a reputable shop to install these? I just got a quote of 3-4 hours from a place around the corner...before anyone says it, I'm not installing them myself for two reasons...#1-my wife will know what i'm doing and #2-i want it done quickly

    This appears to be a fairly straight forward job and it shouldn't take a professional more than a couple hours, right?

    I did it by myself in my non professional hand tool arena (garage) in way less than 4 hrs & I was being extra OCD about it. A shop that has air tools and does this type shit on a daily basis couldn't justify more than 2 hrs IMO...and that's lettin it sit for an hour between you gettin there and them actually taking it back to work on it.

    3-4 hours seems a little much. If you supply them a new bolt 1-2 hours tops.

    The fender well metal blocks them coming out unless you bend it a little. Some people just cut them off then put new ones in from the other direction. Mine were cake. Very little bending, came right out by hand so I put them right back in.

    It should be like 1 hr per side IMO. I think I did mine with basic hand tools in my garage in only like 2 1/2 hrs.

    Do you have any specifications on those bolts? I'd like to get some prior to the install just in case I run into issues.
