Last minute advice - Belt Rail conversion?

I am going to give the belt rail conversion a shot in a couple of hours. It will be me and my son (8) so it will be a lot of just me. How much time should I budget for this? My handyman skill on a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best) is about a 2.

I read the directions and the information here on the site, but does anyone have any recent things to watch out for? I can't wait to get my Badger on!

Thanks guys.

Nothing too technical about it. just don't overtighten the screws. Also, while you are putting it on, if you have a 94 tonneau that you still want to use, but some screw snaps and install them on the belr rail. Start with the snaps snap at the front dash and at the rear door and work your way around the side where the snaps should go. That way you can still run a 94 tonneau or tickford should you decide to save your badger for a muddy trip.
