Anyone remember about 3 years ago the Pro Glass roll pans?

Well mine has been sitting in the closet for almost 2 years and was begging to be installed.

After a few hours of tweaking here and there its loose fit. The center piece is over sized and will need a bit more grinding.

Its a real shame these never made it to market. The quality seems really nice.

I will have the center sized and fit in the next few days and then I can get it and a few other things painted.

OK tip one for the QA1 shock in the front. Grind the stud down to the nut and then turn the shock mount 90 degrees and press while turning the mount slowly with a wrench. It made a huge difference.

Lots more on the way

Lighten the front bumper supprt
