‘HOW TO’ INSTRUCTIONAL BUILD VIDEO
Okay, so I’ve put together a fair few of these kits myself and have learnt from my mistakes, that’s why I have put together the written instructions included with your parts. If you follow those instructions carefully, you will end up with a perfect finished product, but here is a few extra pointers that will help you along the way.
TROY RUSTON Owner/Engineer/DIY Fabricator
- Protect your worksurface and parts from scratches by laying a piece of fabric, cardboard or carpet down where you will be working.
- Once you have removed the protective film from your parts, removing sticky residue can easily be done using acetone or a product called ‘De-solv-it Multi purpose cleaner‘ which can be purchased from Bunnings, this stuff works magic, you will thank me later.
- If you plan on painting or powder coating your parts, make sure you give them a once over with 180-240 grit sand paper, I recommend painting components individually before assembly for best results. Smoothing sharp edges slightly will make sure you get best paint adhesion and impact resistance.
- Once you have worked out where you want to mount your parts, double check your positions to ensure everything will fit without collisions or getting in the way.
- Check where you plan to drill holes to make sure there is sufficient room for fasteners, and you wont be drilling through anything important on the other side.
- For care of raw alloy parts, I get best results by washing as you would the rest of your vehicle with a non corrosive detergent, but avoid abrasive brushes or sponges. For that show like finish I like to use stainless steel cleaning wipes like these ‘Steel Kleen Stainless Wipes‘ after I have dried the car.
- These kits need little to no maintenance, simply checking for loose fasteners and adjusting any latches is sufficient.
