I have not had the time to look into the clips yet. The panel are still sitting in the box. I need to take a trip to the big city and find a dealer that will help me with this. If any one knows where I can get the clips on line please post it.
Finally got the two panels installed yesterday. It very easy if you have a hoist. The rear panel uses 2 existing bumper clips, (3) 8mm? bolt holes with welded nuts already there and (1) 10mm push clips. The front panel uses (2) 10mm push clips and (2) existing 8mm? bolts. I also used (2) large cable ties to hold the panel tighter up against the gas tank brackets. I did not have 10mm push clips so I used bolts and washers. With no problem. So fare things look promising. One highway trip, 60 miles going, 50.6 mpg and 47.8 mpg on the return. My average on the tank so far is 45.4 but I,m still at 3/4 of a tank. My 15 mile trip to work seems to have pick up about 2mpg. Really to early to tell it it really did any thing yet. I will keep you posted.
I ordered and installed the panels. They use two different kind of plastic snaps and a few steel bolts.
I noticed that the panel under the gas tank is only attached to the front and the rear ends with no support in the middle, that's because the HF uses different fuel tank support straps with welded brackets (brackets missing on the LX model) for additional support.
I ordered those too and will find out if they are compatible with the LX gas tank which shows up as a different part number than the HF tank.
For the mean time the panel is secured with tie-wraps to make sure it does not flutter or oil can.
Thanks gohammer! Please let us know if it works out or not.
and if possible once everything works out. Can you copy and paste us the exact part numbers and qty used in this project?
