Let me know how that works out.
Yeah I shaved the screws off too here's pics of my finished side bracket.
You can see here the flap that I had to shave down aswell
Remounted with self tapping screws

And here's what I did with the bolts. I went to home depot and bought 2 zinc plated 3/8 x 4 inch bolts and 2 3/8 washers. Much easier To handle than the t50 bolts with a less chance of stripping.
As for the bumper shocks, can I hammer them in? Or will that set off my airbags? How could I go about doing It without welding them ?
