I have put a bellypan on a friends 1800, took 10 minutes. I put a fork brace on my 1500 took longer to take the fork cover off than it did to put the brace on. Took about 30 minutes to put the bellypan on my 1500 because it did not seem wide enough but it works.

Hall, is the install on the 1500 similar to the video for the 1800 as I have one to install too?

Installed the Superbrace; piece o' cake. I'll try it out on the way to work. Tackle the belly pan tomorrow.

Another fine job completed, the Belly Pan will go just as well I'm sure. :D

Word of advice, wear mechanic's gloves or other protective light duty handwear; the edges of the stainless ones are wicked sharp. Stay calm and cool, the acorn nuts are a pain in the bollix sometimes. That's why mine didn't go back on after the exhaust change; going back on this w/e if all goes well.
with an airbag the Centramatics can be a bit daunting. If you trigger the bag sensor...well, you get the picture. That's a pricey mistake and you can well bet not many dealerships are prepared to do an airbag replacement:Dang:

Got the pan on also. Not bad but the little heat washers on the acorn nuts need to be replaced. Had to order them. Pan install not too bad but the DZUS fasteners took a little time. One went in smooth the other took a little finagling. Also added tubing in the trunk weatherstripping while I was at it. So, got a bunch done. Next, gonna do AMSoil and filter.

Tubing to the trunk weatherstrip? Have you been lurking on the forums ? Baby Buggy Bumpers from Wingstuff would have done the job just as well .

Yea, but I would have had to drill some holes. Thought about just using simple nylon rope but not the right diameter. Got some vacume hose and sprayed it with silicone spray. Stretched a little but it works. Closed the trunk and had to beat it a bit cuz it said it was still open.

I don't doubt it: " Engineered to fit, hammer in place " . Truth be told, I had to angle file the baby bumpers a wee bit after installation.
