    First thing I'd do is make sure its the correct guard,
    I've heard stories of fitters drilling the 5" hole in the wrong guard
    Surely not you though, what are you using on the "A" pillar

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    You will be right mate, I fitted one with a mate using a 5mm drill bit and a steak knife because he was a tight arse and didn't want to buy a hole saw! And don't hold back on the sealant!

    Is it done yet, or have you gone to buy a new guard?

    Try again
    All done! Without eff ups I think?
    The instructions are very vague to say the least, so if you don't feel confident don't give it a go, thinking the instruction manual will get you outta the poop. THEY WONT
    Tape up you panel with low tac masking tape. There is a shipload of rust making swarf/chips flying around. I used a rubber coated magnet to run over everything after. Also use ya bloody safety glasses when using the hole saw!!
    The template edges weren't close to meeting the panels where they were meant to, but the corners did so I bit the bullet. Hope for the best, expect the worst, and take what comes. Tape it down to mark all the holes, remove template and drill/hack away.
    Once all drilled, before removing the tape I filed and painted all holes with touch up paint (inside and out) giving it a few layers.
    HINT: Make sure your step drill isn't dull like mine was on the 16mm, I had to put a bit of force into it and dented the panel, it turned out ok as it pulled back when the snorkel was done up. But at the time with only 1 beer, raging hot sun, it stressed me unnecessarily. I also managed to get white overspray on my black plastic guard, so thatll be todays job getting that off.
    Don't be shy with the silicone and make sure its sensor safe. Where the snorkel goes through the panel you cant see the connection once installed, you can get your fingers around it just, but it has left that lingering doubt that it is 100% sealed. I used half a tube on this connection and had the shit everywhere.
    The connection to the existing air box in my opinion is a bit poor. It buts up and fixed with silicone, again be liberal with it to get that good seal.
    In all the hardest part is probably getting the headlight assembly and airbox out and back in without busting anything
