Thankyou Guido & Shift Tech

I just recieved my group buy airbox covers. Installed in like 30min. I was just wondering since i am the type of guy to always overtighten every bolt i get my hands on. How tight should the allen bolts be under the tail section? (Three on each side) Usually since im so anal i usually count the threads showing on the bolts before i remove them. This time i forgot. (I was too excited to get the panels on) So of course i kept on tightening until they stopped. Now it looks like the bolts indented the carbon fiber as if they were counter sunk. Please someone help me with my OCD sickness? Thanks Again Guido & Shift-Tech for the awesome carbon fiber as usual.

Absolutely sexy CF sides. I like those. Rather than rely on thread counting, which would only work if both materials had the same thickness, I would recommend using blue loc-tite on non-special nut (rubber grommet held bastards), or if using the special nut turn until snug since they don't tend to loosen up like the metal clip ones do.

All the shifttech stuff is equally as nice so if you're going to go crazy, ST is the way to go.
