I am having a hell of time with these things I have stripped out about eighty percent of the nutserts had no problems with them on fenders. What the hell is going on?
When using the PSC tool I ended up getting some heavier/thicker washers... I used two thicker washers with one thin washer in between. AND... between the washers I used lithium grease. Worked much better. I believe I replaced the bolt once also.If its the nut & bolt tool - they SUCK BALLS! And the one PSC sends is the worst of them all.
Good tool makes the job 1,000 times easier, and with better results. Its worth waiting to get the right tool.
Post some pics of your job when done!
I wish I were closer! I'd install them for you at $650. I must agree my arms were a bit sore after installing my flares and I was gritting my teeth on the last one.I only have one rocker panel installed on my jeep right now because I had a hell of a time getting those damn things on. I am waiting to buy the $650 tool I saw on youtube to finish the other side and do the rear corners and the front fenders. I figure this is a lot of money for a tool but I will use it a lot on this Jeep and who know's on how many others in the so cal area once I get it. I have never been so pissed off as I was that night putting that rocker panel protection on. It was such a nice piece, made by such a good company I knew the problem was me. That made it even worse because no matter what I did that night I couldn't make it much better. The right tools are worth every penny every time. Period.
tool is being 2nd day aired to me. I will let you know how it works once it arrives.How about a part number on the tool you bought and how is it working for you? Thanks
