Takes an 1 1/4" wrench to adjust them haha.

Compared to the stock ones they are massive. I've debated getting the pitman arm, but I'm going to stick to my plan of just tie rods until the others are needed.

I got notified that my panel was delivered. My old man is in the hospital though so I need need go see him after work. So pics may be later than normal. His knee got infected so they need to open it up and clean it i guess and then get him on some antibiotics.

Here's some shots of the filler panel. It's super ridged which is nice. I wasn't sure how it would be, but ita made if thick aluminum and is very sturdy. I have some scrap 1/8" aluminum plate that I may cut a piece and powder coat my red and stick behind the wcfab cutout. Should add a nice little touch. ImageImage

He's doing alright. They screwed him over with the doctor leaving for the day after he was scheduled already for the surgery.

He has replacement knees on both knees so I guess that makes those areas more susceptible to infection. He got a cut at work or something and the cut itself didn't get infected but I guess the doctor said it's likely due to that. But unfortunately for them to be sure that it clears up, they need to cut his knee open, clean it, replace the wear pads (not what they are called but that's what he called them) and close it back up. He'll be on antibiotics for a while as well. Should be released tomorrow hopefully.

Got the new delete panel installed. Let me tell you, if GM could have used one more bolt on that stupid valance, it just might have killed them.

There are so many little bolts that hold that piece of plastic on its not funny.

But, going back on with the new panel is a breeze. I took the two outer clips on either end and flipped them the other way so that the bolts went up from the bottom rather than down from the top. Much easier to install them that way. The rest can go down from the top no problem.

I like the look. Will look better yet with the BDS skid plates under there. I still need a new spot to mount my air horn since the bracket I had it bolted to, gets removed with the new panel since it's no longer needed. ImageImage

Got my horn mounted back up and also temporarily color filled the cutout. For now it's just some red acrylic. But I will be powder coating a piece of aluminum in the illusion cherry and putting it behind there so it matches my engine and traction bars.

I may also do the tie rod center sections at some point and maybe the control arms. Not too sure yet.

Eric, you are not joking about the amount of screws holding these on... and the fact that a couple are nearly impossible to get a wrench or socket on! I ordered and received mine after discussing with you. WC Fab is a good company.
Yours looks great!
