So I installed mine a couple months ago, and just recently, I installed Mr. Rusty's brace ^^ too.. I got 2 of the 3 bolts in.. and it was a lot easier to install the 2nd time around..

Let me give you guys a trick that really worked for me.. I took 2 zip ties and with one I made a circle.. the 2nd zip tie, I zip tied (not anywhere tight, I could easily fit 3 fingers) the bar that separates the master cylinder area from the engine bay, now take that 1st zip tie and interloop it to the 2nd. (like 2 wedding bands interlooped)

if you did this right, you should have 1 zip tie to the small metal bar, and another zip tie interlooped and hanging freely...now you'll take that zip tie thats hanging and use that with the gold nut (its actual threads) from the master cylinder to place down in the mounting location, and those zip ties will hold that nut into place while you can focus on lining up your holes..


I then used a socket with a allen head with really good lighting to get the upper and lower bolts into the holes.

Needless to say, the first time I installed it, it took me a good bit of time.. and lots of frustration, the 2nd time I did it.. I knocked it out in 30 to 40 minutes (easily).. i spent more time getting them 3 caps out then installing the actual brace.
