This was test fitted in my car, then removed to be sent back to the owner.

Brett, aka EJ1All-Star sent me his jdm road flare for me to try to fit into a usdm car. I dug around in my garage for the ecu wiring harness cover I had off my del sol. Also used a spare 10mm bolt from my bucket of honda bolts. After I got everything mounted up, I removed it and sent it back to him.

Parts needed:

ecu wiring harness cover
6x100 nut
6x100 bolt (1" long. your typical honda 10mm bolt)
razor
10mm socket
jb weld
file

This is what you will start with. Pull your carpet back and remove the 2 10mm bolts holding it on. Ecu wiring harness cover:



You can see on the upper right corner there is a small hole. I went ahead and enlarged it with a file to fit the bolt through. On the backside it is recessed so you can jb weld the nut in place. Pass the bolt through the hole and thread the nut on so that it is aligned perfectly. Jb weld that nut on there. Let it cure.

This is what it should look like after the nut is on there. Not the best pic, but you get the idea:



front side with bolt:



You should already have your carpet pulled back to remove the ecu harness cover. I already had the cover out since it was from a different car. Go ahead and install the cover onto the ecu using the 2 10mm bolts you removed earlier. Thread the 10mm bolt you will be using to mount the flare bracket into the nut you jb welded to the ecu harness cover.



You want to have it threaded in a little bit so you can put the carpet back over the ecu. You do this so you can feel where you will be putting a small slice in your carpet with the razor. Make a small slice so you can pass the nut through. Pull carpet back and remove the bolt. Put bolt through the flare bracket and put through the hole you just cut. Start threading the bolt in. Careful not to overtighten. This should be your finished product of the holder mounted



Snap flare in place:



Here is a reference pic for how it mounts out of the car.




Now you are done. This was really easy to do. Yes, the carpet is dirty. I need to clean under the carpet.

Why weld....

Can't you just get a longer 10mm bolt and just get a nut to hold the bolt through on the other side?
Yes. I jb welded it on so it he wouldnt have to hold the nut while threading it on. Just an extra step I took for ease of installation.
