Stealth Custom Fab S14 Fender Brace Install

Finally got around installing the fender brace I got form Jonnie F. of Stealth Custom Fab on my purple S14. I always tend to have parts laying around for ever before I decide to install them.

All his parts are laser cut and hand welded. every parts that I've have bought them Jonnie has always had perfect fitment.

Now, go ahead and take your front end a part as seen in pictures below.

Undo the top bolt of the top bracket and bottom two bolts. put the fender brace on and bolt them down.

Included is the circular cutting tool with every fender brace[yes, he gives you a brand new tool, even red thread lock!] go ahead and make a hole and drill out two additional holes to bolt the brace down.

using your hand or a pair of pliers, hold the nut brackets in place and bolt down the included hardware. remember to put thread lock on them before hand.

You probably noticed it by now, I generously spray painted the area that I just cut up so it doesn't rust up on me. i went ahead and taped up the hole that was made so water/debree doesn't get into the fender rail.

you still have room to tuck your harness after you have installed the fender brace. I actually used the cross beam to zip tie up the wire harness out of the way.

Hope this helps anyone that had any questions about the product.

and I highly recommend this to anyone looking for chassis upgrades along with his power brace.

can you still tuck the body harness up though? Looks good.

yes you can.

look at the 3rd picture from top.
my harness sits as it was, but instead of having loops of zipties, i just tied it up to the bottom cross beam on the fender brace. works well.
