Default Zero Sports Duct install?

Hey guys,
I just bought a pair of zero sports cf ducts (from another member) and I can't seem to install them properly. They have screws on the inside but there's nowhere for the screw to go into under the existing side marker area. I'm just a little confused. Can someone help me out?

Yup, you have to drill a small hole.
Good luck getting your hand in on the driver's side to tighten the screw. It's a tight fit for someone with large hands.

Anyway, I didn't have a template either, so I just lined everything up on the fender, and made my hole. Btw, use some automotive spec double sided tape to hold it all on too, as that should keep it all together if the screw comes loose.

Yeah, I was wondering how hard it would be to tighten that screw. Is it better to do this through the intake hole (due to the absence of the intake elbow)? How did you exactly go about doing the driver's side?

Why not just dremel off the bolt threads and just use the 3m double sided tape ? My cf ducts don't have any bolt and are held on by the dst fine

Because I like the fact that mine are original and authentic. I'd rather not mess something up if I don't have to. But thanks for the suggestion. I just wish zero sports would've thought more about this when they designed them.

Take a piece of paper, hole punch as far into the center of the paper as possible. Stick the bolt through the paper. Trace the sidemarker. Remove sidemarker, cut out template.

Then position template on the fender to your liking. Drill hole where the hole punch is and then bolt the sidemarker with some 3m double sided tape (staples carries the good stuff with red backing).

Take the time to make a template for each sidemarker because the bolts may not be in the exact same spot.

Yep, already made my template before your post but thanks for the suggestion. Hopefully, it should go well.

The pass side is done through the intake silencer hole, that one is gravy to get to.

The drivers side is tougher. I tried going through where the battery sits, but I hate removing the battery. I then tried going through the inner fender, as pulling the tire is more convenient, and it worked well.

Good idea on the template.
I never even considered that idea.



Don't forget the washers either.
I used an external lock washer on the inside. That should hold well.

You dont even need to pull the tire, just turn the wheel to lock then pull open the fender liner.

I bought some and the guy chopped off the bolt so I have them just taped on but I worry that someday they will go flying off. I used the 3m auto tape
