Default Ordered!! Fly1 Motorsports AMS body kit

After having some crazy lady jump a curb, mow down a truck and trailer, and then hitting my rear wheel, ripping off my rear bumper like a banana peel, and throwing debris into my front bumper, I have decided that a body kit is in order... Oh yeah, she steps out of her truck (it's midnight) wearing pajamas, no shoes, and holding a birthday cake.

First off, I want to say thank-you to Fly1, as although I talked to many companies, they answered all my questions quickly, courteously, and professionally; I generally feel service is a reflection of the product. Not to say other companies weren't, just I felt most satisfied with their responses.

I ordered the Fly1 AMS body-kit. I have professional training in composites, but mostly on aircrafts and custom molds; never installed a bodykit before. While I reasonably assume that I can do it, experience in anything is always valued. Any words of wisdom prior to my install?

I'm bad with updating pictures, but I'll try to update this log with install pics and the finished product.

Cooltoy, thanks for the link. I had actually bookmarked that thread yesterday to refer back to. Definitely appreciate you having put that together.

So...After I got out and checked on everyone, she refuses to get out until police were there. A buddy of mine was actually following here from over 4 miles down the road, because she ran three other cars off the road and was swerving and stopping in the middle of traffic. He was trying to call the police. Cops said that she didn't appear to be under the influence of anything, but that she had dropped her phone...and spent the entire time trying to find it. She was in her 70's, and I never found out who's birthday party this woman was going to at midnight. She had insurance, so that's good, but you think she would have at least offered us a piece of cake.
