Targa Fender Eliminator Kit

Three days ago i ordered the fender eliminator kit and received it from ups yesterday. My first impressions were not great the seal was already open and packing peanuts were throughout the kit (that could just been from careless ups). I decided to mount the kit in the front closest to the battery which is not where it is meant to be mounted so it would need a little adjustment to the kit but i thought would get the best result (which it did look much better). The kits instruction were pretty much worthless in my mind, not very good. So after i got the license plate and blinkers on the bracket and re angled the bracket piece i mounted it. Then noticing that not matter where you hang it there are 2 ugly square brackets that were used for the stock fender and there were no finishing pieces in the kit. So instead of cutting those off and taking away from the strength of the rear light i would take the stock fender and cut the bottom off of it to round it out. So after about an our of cutting the stock fender and filing it was finished. The kit looks very good now imo. My overall impressions of the kit is dont buy it unless you want to be a little innovative with it to cover the imperfections the kit does not.

Here are pictures of it finished:

I looked up undertail kits as well and found that for 20 bucks and using all my stock components I could achieve the same result. I reused the signals and metal mount off the original fender. I also used the stock fender holes and bolts to mount the new targa aluminum bracket. Roughly 30 minutes of work and it was done. I did not reuse the lisence plate light, placing the lisence plate under the LED break light provides plenty of illumination for me. If you wanted a lisence plate light they make lisence bolts with LED's built in.
