      You went from stock to bags?

      Bob, if you need moral support during the install... I'm probably not doing ****. Also, C.R. can happen.

      its not so bad, just drop the panels, there is space by the brake lines..... it'll take longer pulling the lines through the trunk then it will to run them to the front

      He can just run the lines through the inside of the car, out the windows and down to the bag. You may want to tape them to the fender though so they don't fly all around.
