    Hi all:

    I did the normal "search" but really haven't turned up the info I was looking for.

    I am installing a set of push plates on a 97 Chevy K1500 (Fisher MM1) I have them "almost" bolted in except for the last bolt(s) on the side of the frame.(the ones you have to drill out) Especially the one further back on the frame are there any "secrets" to getting that last bolts in? :help: I can't fit my sausage fingers inside the frame rail...:realmad: Or is it easier just to remove the bumper and be done with it? or did I just answer my own question...:rolleyes:

    Thanks!!

    Take a combination wrench. Put a piece of paper towel over the box end then insert the nut. The Paper towel will hold the nut tight in the wrench so you can thread the bolt into it from the outside. Ive been using that trick fro alot of years. It works like a charm. let me know how you make out.
