Installation  Instructions for El Camino Rear Wrap

It is very important to have your bumper adjusted correctly if the Rear Wrap is to fit properly. If your bumper is sagging down, you must adjust it up as far as possible.  To do this, simply loosen four bolts each bumper shock side and lift bumper up with floor or bumper jack and tighten.  If rear wrap does not go all the way to the end of the bumper, take out bumper shims between inner bumper and  bumper shocks.

Place both rear quarter panels and rear filler on ground as it will be installed on vehicle.  Line up rear quarter panel against rear filler so they align properly.  Drill a ¼” hole from rear filler through rear quarter on top and bottom for both sides.

Hold rear quarter panel up against vehicle so that it is parallel to the ground and the end of panel is under bumper.  Mark and drill rear quarter tabs where they hit the bottom of the flat under-side of quarter.  Pull up, out and back of rear quarter so it fits inside rear wheel well ½” up from bottom of well.  Drill and install ¼” and ½“ ” sheet metal screw and washer.  NOTE: rear quarter panel fits along side body until it meets bumper hump, (behind bumper), then mounts beneath hump,( A). Repeat for opposite side, but do not tighten, for adjustment reasons.  Adjust bumper so ends of rear quarter fit flat on bottom of bumper. 

To install rear filler piece, remove bolts in bottom of bumper where indicated (B).  Hold filler up against bottom of bumper and mark where tabs hit bolts on bottom of bumper. If you have bumper guards, use metal file to scribe out rear filler panel to accept bumper guards.  Drill out filler panel tabs large enough so you will have adjustment. Place rear filler under bumper and attach upper and lower ¾” sheet metal screws, small washer and black Tinnerman nut on opposite side, (these holes should already be drilled according to previous instructions).  Re-install bottom bumper bolts, and tighten all attachment points. 

NOTE:  If exhaust pipe is covered by Rear Wrap, (sides or back), you can (1) cut out to accept exhaust, (2) install exhaust extensions, so exhaust will hang lower, or (3) cut exhaust tip back far enough to install exhaust  tip turndowns.
