It is reccomended that threadlocker be used on all bolts to ensure the nuts don't come loose due to vibrations while driving.
Land Rover Defender customers. Special instructions located at the bottom of this page.
Loosely bolt the short side of all three metal brackets against the non artwork side of the plastic fairing. Start by using the widest holes at each end of the fairing.
The rubber washer needs to be between the bolt and the front on the fairing and the thumb nut on the back side to secure the metal bracket to the fairing.
Insert the elongated end of the rubber through the slit in the metal bracket, and twist to secure.
If you have T Track use your hardware to mount your bracket to the crossbar.
Place assembled fairing onto vehicle roof, with metal bracket on TOP of crossbar to start, you may need to place the bracket on the underside of your crossbar depending on how the fairing sits.
Make sure the rubber bulb strip is touching your roof, this will protect your paint from the fairing rubbing against it.
The mounting brackets are pre-bent on a 45 degree angle, altering this angle may cause the rubber bulb to not be in contact with the roof, which may cause damage to painted surfaces. We do not reccomend altering the angle and the customer agrees that CFC will not be held responsible for misuse of materials that may cause damage to the customers property.
You may have to remove your rack sports carrier in order to attach fairing hardware.
Situate the fairing where you would like it on the car making sure it is centered. Take the rubber straps and stretch under crossbar and feed back through metal bracket to secure. Twist to lock. Make sure rubber strap is secure. Very little movement side to side should occur but the fairing will be able to lift up by hand. This is normal, and when driving the wind will be pushing the fairing down onto the roof.
Do not overtighten the straps. This may cause the straps to crack or split, which can result in failure of the strap. We recommend that customers check the mounting hardware on a regular basis to ensure all parts are secure and working properly.
For T Track customers, you can loosly secure the brackets to the crossbar and then slide them until the fairing is centered on your vehicle.
(If you have a straight bottom fairing there is no need to push the center of the fairing forward. If you have a reverse smile shaped fairing, you will not need to push the center forward and if you do it will be very minimal just to bring the front corners down)
Once all three to four metal brackets are secure to crossbar, slide the brackets forward in the middle and back on the sides in order to achieve a curve to match the vehicle profile.
Tighten bolts at plastic fairing to achieve a curve (as viewed from the top of the car) and touching in the middle and as much as possible on the side (as viewed from front of car).
A slight gap in the corners of the fairing is okay. To minimize the gap at the corners, push the tightened bracket and rubber towards the center of the vehicle to pull the corners down. This may take a few attempts to achieve a good fit.
Land Rover Defender Customers with OEM Rack
Mount the brackets to your fairing and center the fairing on your roof so you can mark where the brackets will need to go through the metal air dam on the front bottom portion of the rack. You will have to use a dremel or other tool to cut two slots in the front air dam so the mounting brackets can slide through. Once this is done slide the brackets through the slots and secure on the other side with a bolt and locking nut or an L bracket that would need to be bolted to the air dam as well.
The side brackets will need to be attached to the bottom of the rack by lining them up and drilling a hole to secure with a bolt and locking nut.
Leave all brackets slightly loose so you can adjust the fairing to it's final position and then tighten all nuts. It is recommended to use threadlock on all bolts.
Please refer to step three in the instructions above and follow the remaining instuctions.
CFC fairings are designed to be installed on a 45 degree angle so the rubber bulb on the bottom of the fairing sits on the vehicle, which protects the vehicle's paint. Failure to install the fairing without the rubber bulb touching the vehicle can result in damaging the paint.
