dont ask me for ohc help ha. the mounting bracket somehow got bent which i found out after i cut the headliner and drilled holes so then i just got a licence plate and cut a little 1" long strip if it and screwed it to the ohc to wrap arond the front of the headliner and than the rear i put a small peice of wood in the headlinger and drilled holes threw the ohc into it so it would stay up. it works but the front isnt the greatest, it looks good but it rest on my rear veiw mirror but it works thats all that matters ha

It's really not that hard to do, but the after effect of the thing is great. One of the best and most helpful mods one can do IMO.

Measure the OHC attachment points on the bracket, and then measure the attachment points on the OHC itself, and that will tell you whether or not the bracket is bent. If the measurements don't line up, you got some problems.

I followed the "how-to" posted here... I wont lie to you, wasnt as easy as I though... the dissasembly, cleaning was a pice of cake... reasamble of the roll-over numbers was a MAJOR PAIN IN THE AS (to work correctly)

take the risk... you wont be dissapointed... trust me pal!
