Xtreme V Mold board issue

    I'm looking to see if anyone has this problem with thier xtreme v mold board. I just bought a brand new 9.5 xtreme v in November and have plowed with it for 2 storms. I decided to install a sp:mad:lash guard on it today to prevent snow from comming up onto my hood/windshield. I started on the driverside like the directions said with the installation. That took me about 10 minutes at the most. Now I move to the passenger side of the plow and when I am removing the screws of the mold board, it is difficult like the bolt is binding against the steel. When I go to install the splash guard, I have to put a clamp on the mold board to the blade to make the holes line up. Total pain in the neck. It took me almost an hour and a half to do the passenger side. I not impressed with the lack of attention to detail by Fisher. I have a 9' straight x blade that I have owned for 3 seasons and at the end of each year, i remove the mold board and clean the back side of the mold board and touch-up paint the x bracing on the blade. I am planing on doing this process to my new xtreme v, but not when I will have to clamp the mold board just to get it back attatched to the blade. Has anyone else experienced this? I'm not too happy about it.:mad:
