Dave,

I've actually been in Charleston(with the 90). I'm winding down the year here and will get back to you about ordering the kick panels when I get some time to start playing around with mods.

Joe

- did you pick up your new ride at LR Nashville or privately?

Keith,

What year of D90 do you have? I still have kick panels in stock for the 1997 driver side and 1995 and up non A/C passenger sides.

If you are looking for a 1994 - 1995 drivers side I am currently out of them, but I will make more once I sell a few more of the 1997 driver side kick panels.

thanks,

I (finally) installed my drivers side panel on the '97. It took maybe 10 minutes....pretty simple. No issues.

I went to install mine but ran into a possible mounting issue (granted, I only dealt with it for 5 minutes as I was in the middle of cleaning a shed). My 94 has these rather large bolt heads as well as the clutch spring in that upper channel that when the plate is installed, force the top of the plate downward, pulling the channel out. I will look more at it this week but has anyone else seen these huge bolt heads there? Other than that, I agree that is only a 10 minute job.

Hi Chris,

Can you get a picture of the large bolt heads? I did not see anything like you describe when I test fit the panels on the 94, 95 and 97 D90's that I had access to.

I am sure we can find a way to get it installed

Here you go, a little grainy but you should be able to see the 2 bolt heads.

Hi Chris,

Kind of hard to tell from the pictures that you posted, but the bolts and spring look the same as the ones on the 94 & 95 that I tested the panels on.

Here are some pictures of the 94 that I tested, if you look close you will see the spring and the bolt heads in there.

Hopefully the pictures will help

Feel free to IM or PM me

You know what... your spring goes to the left, mine goes to the right up under the channel which is causing the problem. I am wondering if it was switched at one point while some work was being done or something. I'll see if I can switch it and try refitting.

thanks

Chris, you can put it on either side. It won't cause a problem.

Kind of odd,

One that I tested it was on the right and one was on the left. The panel fit both of them regardless of the side that the spring was installed on.

Are you missing the foam that goes in between the dash and the kick panel? Without the foam in place it might not keep the panel spaced out the proper distance from the dash.

Just a thought

Just checking on any updates regarding a 94/95 Driver's side panel.

Whenever these are ready I want/need one.

If you need a 'group buy' I'm sure others will chime in.

Cheers,

Nicholas
