    I didn't take any pictures of the install as it's pretty straight forward. 3 bolts and 1 nut. 2 if you count the installer.

    What you wanna know if about the quality and fit. Well..... Those are superb.

    All parts suggested for the the switch-pros tray aligned exactly where they are meant to go. Perfect!!!!

    I ran into only one problem and it is no fault of Power Trays. The front most bolt would not screw In completely. Seems it was cross threaded from the factory (I've found 3 bolt holes that have been so far) but it just won't tighten any further. You can sort of see it in the picture below.

    I also managed to loose the only nut included with the kit cause I'm a clumsy fingered dumbass. It fell below the factory fuse tray into that unreachable void. A trip to the hardware store fixed that right up.

    After not reading the directions provided carefully enough I originally installed the support leg upside down. I rectified that problem and it all lined up amazingly. The areas are fairly cramped to get to but it worth the lost skins and blood to get this look and organization. Skin grows back! And what kind of project is it without a little shedded blood.

    Overall this is a quality product. I feel the service, care of packaging, ease of this assist g a proper switch-pros build, and the look make this purchase worth giving mine and your dollars. I've been impressed at each step of adding the blue sea, switch-pros and then final install in the engine bay

    I'm not yet finished with all my wiring as parts are still in the mail. Hopefully everything shows up shortly and I can put all this stuff to good use and further clean up any wiring.

    Forgive the first three pictures. They show the support leg installed upside down.
    This is how it is supposed to look.

    Wowza! Really great job on the wiring!
    And yeah the nuts inserts on the fender are bottomless, so unfortunately it must be cross threaded... I would ask around your local thread and see who has an M8 x 1.25 tap so you can straighten out those threads.
    Also, sorry I know my directions don't reference it, but flip around the support leg so the "dog leg" attaches to the lower fender, this will allow the support leg to clear the OEM fuse box and come up straight.
    Other than that really great job with the install!

    Ohhhh now it makes sense. I shoulda looked at pictures first. Doh!
    Plus who reads instructions?
    I was already pissed for losing that nut.
    I'll get it all straighter out tomorrow and edit my post with new photos
