Default KBD Dual Exhaust Rollpan DIY installation.

Alright, so i've had this piece for a while now and seeing how this was very different from the one i had, i didn't know how to install it.

Thanks to sooner cruisers panel pt build thread, i had an idea on how to mount this thing. So thank you sir!

I started by fitting the rollpan on the car. Then i marked where the tabs are (the KBD pan has tabs that you're supposed to use strong double sided tape) i didn't trust this, even though i'm sure it could hold up fine.

So, i pre drilled holes on to the body, and used stainless steel screws to hold it.




That was the easy part. The hardest part of mounting this piece is the fact that it doesn't have the curved notches that fit on to the plastic screw like bolts like all factory bumpers do.

These are the notches i'm talking about on the top edge of the bumper:


So i decided to use those same holes that the plastic bolts are on.



I pushed the rollpan against the car like it's supposed to go, then i drilled holes into it. I then used a machine screw with a washer on top. For the bottom, i used a washer and a nut (kind of hard to get to, but not too bad with a small wrench) to hold that part of the rollpan in place. And it worked great. I put 2 screws per side.






Lucky for me, there's a auto paint place a minute away from my house that you can buy paint for your vehicle. I bought 2 cans of paint, primer and some clear coat. I painted it and waited a day to mount it.

So hopefully, this helps anyone that's thinking of getting this type of rollpan. you don't have to take it to a body shop if you don't want to spend the extra money. Overall i spent a few hours mounting it. The longest is waiting 24hrs for the paint/clear coat to dry.



Now all i have to do is take it to a muffler shop to get the other exhaust done.

I had to mount the license plate light under the rollpan facing up, as you can see in that last picture. Because the light would not fit on the inside top part of the license plate like it normally would. The manufacturers didn't leave enough room for it. Not sure why. but oh well. I hope that's enough light for the plate at night.

Thumbs up Re: KBD Dual Exhaust Rollpan DIY installation.

Again, a nice job on the fitting at the center!
Better than my body guys did.


IF...I ever have to replace it, I will insist on a better fit


Having been through so much with the Panel Project this past year...if I have to do it myself......I WILL!

And, I insisted they put two screws on each flange in the rear hatch area, just like you did!

Nice job and thanks for the info.
Just a few weeks ago I installed my KBD front lip and side skirts. I primed and painted them myself. I have have been putting off doing the rear roll pan. Did you have to remove a bumper brace?
