EG6 ULTRA RACING fender brace 'install'

Following on from my previous posting the EG6 Fender Brace / Bar, I finally got down to TRY to get it install myself. 

Before starting, it is a good idea to get the rust convertor and some paint, just in case there is rust behind the side skirt.

To remove the fender, u can choose remove the side skirt to assess the on of the bolts hiding behind or u can choose to bend the side skirt a bit to assess the bolt.  For me, I choose to be safe, in case I damage the side skirt.

To remove the side skirt, just remove 2 screws at the front and some plastic retainers below.  Then push the side skirt towards the front of the car and it will come off.

Lucky for me, there was no rust :D

To fix back the side skirt. Remove the plastic retainers from the car body, slot it back onto the side skirt, and push the side skirt back on. 

Plastic Retainers for side skirt

Twist to 45 degrees

Should come off quite easily

Slot it back onto the side skirt

Ready to clip it back on

Finally got the fender off..

The top of the Ultra Racing fender brace / bar aligns well to the door hinge bolts

The bottom part aligns well too...

.... However, there is no place to bolt the fender bar on.  (UR provide bolts and nuts, so that u 'can' bolt them on)

 I got the picture off Ultra Racing website. You can see that it is bolted on in the picture.  I made a few checks with fellow EG owners, apparently for all EGs there is no way u can assess the space behind that part of the chasis unless u cut a hole... no way..

The solution will be to have it welded on instead... so into the storeroom the fender brace goes..

Luckily, I got to replace my door hinges.  So the effort to remove the fenders was not wasted.

Conclusion:  The fender brace was well-made BUT ULTRA RACING DO let the buyers know that it is NOT a DIRECT BOLT ON!!

    Erm, why don't you just weld it on? I welded mine on.
