Ssilver, you did the side markers yourself with those rattle cans from post #41?
Came out really nice

Yes I did. I am going to redo them though because I did not sand the primer perfectly smooth so there are some imperfections

The paint is from Automotivetouchup.com

I got the primer from autozone. It is just a sandable primer.

The only color you really need to get from Automotivetouchup.com is your car color. The gloss sealer and primer you can get elsewhere.

It was pretty easy. The toughest part for me was figuring out which way the screw turned. Opposite of a normal screw by the way. So for a while I was tightening it instead of taking it out. After that the insert itself is a pretty tight fit so you really have to jam it in there. Then I just screwed it in and the washer helped press it into place.

So far I've noticed wheel hop is non existent and gear changes are a little firmer. It's been great so far with barley any increased vibration (some on start up, in reverse and low rpm). One of the best mods you can do.

So to loosen the screw, go opposite? When screwing it back on, does it line up or do I need to worry about trying to line the screw up catching the dogbone?

Yeah instead of turning it right (clockwise) to tighten it its the opposite. So turn clockwise to loosen and counterclockwise to tighten. I didn't have a problem aligning it. It just stayed in place but if it does move it is really easy to move back
