  • One Problem with these instructions was installing the two outside Proximity Sensors was not covered. The Step was missing completely from the instructions. The Upper Shell Proximity Sensor was the only one covered. It required me to take the shell off  the bottom M4x20 Nylon Standoffs to insert the screws.

  • Regarding the Battery case, I found that by slightly modifying the original battery case bracket by putting it in a vice and bending the 90 degree angle and making it about a 45 degree angle I was able to mount it to the top using the original bolt from the Upper Shell, it sits nicely and conforms to the angle of the rear body.
