Tired penguin

Installed the driver's side Savvy rock rail today. Installing the nutserts into the blind holes was a friggin' workout, it takes a significant amount of force to make those friggin' things collapse and grab the hole, and then there was the fact I had to keep testing my placement and figuring out how to get it tight against my Jeep, relocate the wiring (all the wires to the back of the Jeep were behind the holes under the driver's door and I had to rip out the plastic guard there and shove them out of the way, I'm going to have to wrap them back in a large piece of plastic loop to protect them once I'm finished), figure out how to modify my fender flares to fit over the new rocker armor, figure out how to modify the rear fender liner to fit under the new rocker armor... I'm beat. Once I get the other one installed, I'm then going to have to go get some new bolts to replace the bolts that want countersunk holes but I don't have countersunk holes in mine and am not willing to give up the strength to countersink them.

So anyhow, I'm going to put some clothes on washing, then hit the hay. See ya tomorrow!
